Road compensation


If you need to claim road compensation for an accident that was not your fault, there are many types of road traffic accidents that it could be for, including:

  • A motorbike collision
  • A bicycle accident
  • An accident involving a pedestrian
  • Heavy goods vehicle accidents
  • A car collision
  • Accidents with buses or coaches
  • Multi vehicle pile ups
  • Accidents caused by potholes or bad roads.

Road compensation for the injuries sustained

The road compensation is paid for the injuries sustained in such accidents. The severity of these can vary greatly, but can include:

  • Back and spine injuries
  • Joint damage
  • Facial injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Soft tissue injuries

These are just a few examples of the injuries that can be sustained in a road traffic accident, and of course not all victims survive. Currently, on average 5 victims a day die on our roads – a significant reduction when compared to previous times, but something that needs improving.

The reasons for the reductions of serious injuries and deaths on our roads

There are many reasons why the accident figures have improved, just some of them being:

  • Safer cars
  • Better safety gear for two wheeled riders
  • Drink driving laws
  • Safety belts
  • Safer roads

These things all help, however a lack of concentration is still the most common excuse given by drivers who cause accidents, and that is because all it takes is a few seconds looking in the wrong direction for an accident to happen.

Claiming your entitlement

The laws in the UK are very specific regarding claiming road compensation, or compensation for any other sort of accident. They are:

  • The accident must have been the fault of someone else
  • You must have sustained your injuries in the accident
  • The injuries must have needed medical attention
  • The accident must have happened within the last three years

Any victim fitting these rules can make a claim for compensation and that is exactly what they should do.
