Despite the congestion charge and the general costs of travelling by car the number of personal injury claims in Greater London are increasing year on year.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident or collision within the last three years then there is a good chance that Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you win the financial compensation that you deserve.
Road traffic collisions
Road traffic collisions can occur in a number of locations and for a number of different reasons. Assuming at least one person is injured and the accident occurred as a result of the actions of another person (regarded as being the third party) then personal injury claims in Greater London can be brought against them.
Accident Advice Helpline has extensive experience in handling just such personal injury claims in Greater London and we will do all we can to make sure that you get the legal advice and support needed to bring a successful claim.
When it comes to road traffic collisions it is not always the drivers of the vehicles involved who are liable. One of the most recent personal injury claims in Greater London that our solicitors have worked on involved a case of faulty road work traffic lights.
The lights had been installed at the beginning of a set of road works to ensure the safe operation of a contraflow system. Our client commenced driving on the remaining lane of the road as the lights on her side of the road works were green. Unfortunately, due to a fault at the other end, another driver had also started driving as their lights were also green. As the road works were installed round a bend neither driver knew that the other one was approaching until it was too late. Unable to brake in time the cars collided head on.
Our solicitors were able to determine that neither driver had been exceeding the speed limit associated with the safe operation of the road works, and could have done nothing else to avoid each other. The fault on the lights had been the cause for the accident and therefore the company carrying out the works were deemed to be liable.
This is another good example of one of the many personal injury claims in Greater London that we have been able to settle out of court.
