    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Road traffic compensation


    In the old days, people would not have known what a car is or what its function is. But today, everyone knows what a car is for and what they look like. Unfortunately, this also means that people all over the country know what a road traffic accident is.

    Anyone in the UK could well be in a car when someone else causes an accident and they are injured. Not too badly, we hope, but if it is bad enough to need a doctor or hospital to look at then it is bad enough for the victim to tell an injury solicitor so that they can discuss a road traffic compensation claim.

    Using an injury solicitor will let you discuss your road traffic compensation claim

    Different people react differently to the same accident, so every car crash and every injury and the effects on your life will be accounted for as part of your road traffic compensation claim. There are many reasons why road traffic accidents happen, but the most common one is driver error due to a lack of concentration. You will be able to discuss the circumstances around your accident with your personal injury solicitor.

    Making a claim for road traffic compensation at Accident Advice Helpline

    The value of your claim will be based on the severity of your injury, and can include:

    • Childcare;
    • Pain and suffering;
    • Anxiety and stress;
    • Loss of earnings;
    • Travel expenses;
    • Medical expenses;
    • Care costs; and
    • Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident.

    You should keep any receipts for anything you spend, as proof of purchase may be needed. All these factors will be parts of your claim, plus anything else you think may be relevant.
