    Road Traffic Accident Claims


    Britain’s highways are a busy place these days. With so much congestion on the roads and people usually rushing to get to workplaces, appointments and meetings, it is no wonder that the number of road traffic accident claims is on the rise every year.

    Every day we handle cases involving injuries that have occurred whilst on the road, from minor head and neck injuries, to more serious complications.

    By seeking compensation for the victims of these accidents, Accident Advice Helpline hopes to bring some justice to the situation, as well as giving the injured party the cash they need to help speed their recovery.

    What types of injuries can be claimed for?

    Thanks to advances in car safety technologies, many of these accidents are not serious any more. Typical shunts, and even some higher speed accidents which would previously have caused serious injuries, now are fortunately a little less serious. However, with this decrease in serious injuries, the injuries we deal with include broken ribs, bruising and, most commonly, whiplash.

    Whiplash is caused by the snapping back and forth of the head at the point of impact, and is more common these days than ever because the seatbelt holds the body in place but leaves the head free to move around. The results of this can have a major impact on peoples lives, as it can cause serious damage to the neck, back and shoulders, and people who have suffered even minor whiplash should always seek medical attention.

    Who can make road traffic accident claims?

    If you have been involved in an accident where you got hurt, and someone else has admitted responsibility, then chances are you will be able to make a claim. This doesn’t just include the drivers of the vehicles; any passengers travelling in the cars with them can also make a claim. Even if you were a passenger in the vehicle that was at fault for the accident, you can still claim. Don’t worry if the ‘at fault’ driver is your friend or spouse, as their insurance will cover the cost of your claim, so they wont be paying out of their own pocket.

    Of course, road traffic accidents aren’t limited to just people in cars. If you have been involved in an accident on the road but were on your bike, walking, using public transport, or for any other reason were in the vicinity, you can still make a claim. Still unsure if you can claim? Call us today or take our 30-second test to see whether you are likely to be successful.
