    How an expert solicitor in Instow proves an RTA claim

    If you have been involved in a road traffic accident or collision you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation; however, not all accidents will result in claims being awarded.

    We asked our expert solicitor in Instow to put together some details to help us demonstrate how a claim for compensation is made after an RTA.


    Our solicitor in Instow told us that one of the most important things to consider when making a claim for compensation is who is responsible for the accident. If you have been injured you can only pursue a claim for compensation if there is someone to make a claim against.  This will usually be the person who is directly responsible for the accident occurring, in the case of an RTA it will be another road user.

    An RTA claim can only be made if a driver has been negligent by making a driving error.  Usually this relates to a breach of a stipulation in the Highway Code (which all drivers are familiar with).  If a solicitor in Instow can establish this then that is the first part of the claim process.

    Further Action

    Next your solicitor in Instow will look at causation – this is essentially determining that the error that was made  by the other driver directly caused the injuries for which you are hoping to make a claim for compensation.  This can be determined from medical records or an official doctor’s report (which your solicitor in Instow can arrange to be completed for you).

    It is important that your solicitor in Instow can establish that any injuries you have suffered from did not already exist.  If it is the case that you already had a bad back but the symptoms have been made worse as a result of your accident then you will still be able to make a claim, your solicitor in Instow will just need to be aware of the facts and more care will need to be taken to establish how much additional damage the accident is likely to have caused in relation to your pre-existing condition.
