Road injuries caused on impact


If you have been involved in a car crash that was not your own fault, and as a result you suffered from road injuries caused on impact, then you should speak to an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline so that they can assist you in making an injury claim.

To make a claim for road injuries caused on impact, you need to fit the following criteria:

  • It was no more than three years ago that the accident happened;
  • The accident in which you were involved was not your fault;
  • You were injured in that accident; and
  • The injuries need medical attention.

Complying with these rules means you are probably entitled to claim compensation, and you should contact Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.

It is not just road injuries caused on impact for which you can claim

There are lots of different accidents for which you could make a personal injury claim, for instance:

  • Road traffic accidents;
  • Food poisoning;
  • Slips, trips or falls;
  • Industrial illnesses and conditions;
  • Faulty products;
  • Travel accident;
  • Work-related accidents; and
  • Medical negligence.

These are just a few — we deal with any type of accident you can think of.

Settlement of your road injuries claim

In the majority of cases, it is likely to be an insurance company or some other large organisation that settles your claim, rather than the actual person who caused it, such as:

  • A motor insurance company;
  • The Motor Insurers’ Bureau;
  • An employers’ liability insurance company;
  • A public liability insurance company;
  • A government department;
  • A health trust;
  • A manufacturer;
  • A product liability insurance company; or
  • A local authority.

It can be daunting for a victim to have to deal with these large organisations, but for us it is part of the job and we do it all the time.

Its not just the road injuries for which you can claim

When you make an injury claim, you need to consider several factors, for instance:

  • Anxiety and trauma;
  • Loss of earnings;
  • The impact on your future life;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Childcare;
  • Travel costs;
  • Home adaption or home moving;
  • Care costs;
  • Any other cost or losses that are a direct result of the accident; and
  • Pain and suffering.

All of these need looking at closely to ensure you are financially compensated for the material items, as well as the injuries.
