Collisions involving other motorists are common, everyday occurrences on our busy and congested roads. At some time or another, we may all be involved in a collision on the roads; with other road users, stationary objects or even involving pedestrians crossing the road.
If you have been hit by another driver from behind in your vehicle and been injured as a result within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue personal injury compensation for your Middlesbrough road traffic accidents.
Rear end shunt?

- stop junctions
- pedestrian crossings
- in a line of slow moving traffic
The law states that if you are the victim of a rear end shunt accident and sustain an injury as the result, through no fault of your own within the last 3 years’, then you are legally entitled to pursue compensation for your Middlesbrough road traffic accidents.

Typical injuries caused by a rear end shunt may include:
