Can I Claim Compensation After a Road Traffic Accident?
An expert accident lawyer in Winchester could help you claim after a road traffic accident, whether you were the driver, a passenger or even a pedestrian, provided that:
- The accident happened within the last three years (or if you were a minor at the time, three years after the date you reached the age of 18)
- You sustained injuries which required medical treatment, either at the time or subsequently (some conditions, such as whiplash, may only become obvious after a few days)
- Someone else caused the accident by acting carelessly, negligently or criminally. They may have been driving dangerously or not paying attention. They could have been speeding or caused the accident through inexperience.

In most cases an expert accident lawyer in Winchester can help you deal with a case relatively quickly and without you having to appear in court, unless the circumstances are particularly complex. You could be set to receive a compensation payment for:
- Your injuries. The law will also take into account whether these will have any long term effects on your mobility or ability to work, for example.
- Any loss of earnings because you haven’t been able to work in the short term as a result.
- Any out of pocket expenses you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. This could cover items such as prescription charges and transport costs. You can also claim for help around the home and childcare, if you have needed to pay for these too.
If you’ve suffered life-changing injuries in a road traffic accident and you genuinely believe that someone else was to blame through their actions, you may have a legal right to claim compensation from them.
