Irvine road traffic accidents are just a very small portion of the 3 million accidents that happen every year in the UK, but that does not mean they are any less serious or devastating for innocent victims of them.
Road traffic accidents in general are the second most common of accidents — the one that happens more being slip, trip, and fall accidents. Of all the accidents on our roads, Irvine road traffic accidents happen involving all sorts of vehicles, just like the rest of them.
The vehicles that could be in Irvine road traffic accidents
It is not just cars that have crashes, it could also be:
- HGVs, and
- tractors and other farm vehicles.
As well as all the vehicles, pedestrians can also be involved in Irvine road traffic accidents, and it is not unusual for an animal to be the victim of one.
Your legal rights if you are the innocent victim of a road traffic accident
British law says that if someone else has caused you injuries sometime in the last three years, and those injuries were so bad you had to seek medical attention, you are entitled to claim compensation from the guilty party.
For many victims this will be the first time they have been involved in this type of legal process, and to try to make the claim themselves would be risky. Many claims are lost on a technicality, and making sure they are paid the correct amount may also be a problem.
This is why innocent victims of any type of accident should contact Accident Advice Helpline for assistance with their personal injury claim. This is what Esther Rantzen will tell you, because she knows we excel at what we do and we take care of our claimants, as they are important to us.
Making your claim for compensation
We have been making claims since we opened our doors to the public in June 2000. We do not operate in any other area of law, but specialise in personal injury compensation claims. The knowledge and experience we have gained have allowed us to make the processes simple, fast, and efficient, so the victim has as little stress as possible from making their claim.
We work on a no win, no fee* basis so that claimants do not have to find any money to start their claim, or in case the claim is lost. This makes claiming compensation an option anyone can take if they have been injured in an accident that was not their own fault.
If you would like some idea of how much your award could be, complete the 30-second test on our website. This lets you know if you have a valid claim, and gives you an estimate of the amount you may be awarded.
Alternatively, you can speak to our friendly advisors on 0800 180 4123. They will give you all the information you need to decide if you want to pursue a personal injury claim.
