Road traffic accident claims in Cambridgeshire
Road traffic accident claims work in much the same way as other personal injury claims in that there is a 3 year time limit on filing a claim. You can only make a road traffic accident claim if the accident you were injured in was caused by someone other than yourself, and if you sought medical attention for your injuries.
Do I need to be a driver to claim?
Many people are under the misapprehension that they either need to be a driver or, at the very least, a passenger in a vehicle if they want to make a road traffic claim. However, the reality is that anyone who is injured on the road, by someone else can make a road traffic accident claim. This means that cyclists and pedestrians are just as entitled to make a claim as people in vehicles.
Can I claim for an accident on public transport?
It is very possible to claim road traffic accident compensation for injuries sustained on public transport such as buses or trains, providing that you meet all the other requirements of making a personal injury claim.
What kind of injuries can I claim for?
It is possible to claim for absolutely any injuries you sustain in a road traffic accident that was not your fault. Common accidents caused by road traffic accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
If you are injured in any way on the road, you should always see a doctor to ensure you are treated correctly and that your injuries are recorded.
