Road traffic accidents (RTAs) can be extremely traumatic experiences for all involved. Whether you are a driver or pedestrian at the time of the incident – and whether you suffered major or comparatively minor injuries – if the accident wasn’t your fault, there is a chance that you could claim RTA compensation.
If you are one of the thousands of people who has suffered an RTA through no fault of your own and you haven’t looked into claiming RTA compensation yet, you may find that not only are you eligible, but that the process is not as complicated as you might have thought.
While claiming compensation after a road traffic accident may not be your first priority, especially if you have been badly injured, it is worth your while to make sure you do so at your earliest possible convenience if you decide to go down that route. To claim RTA compensation, an accident will normally have to have taken place within the three years preceding the date of the claim – so it pays not to put off claiming for too long.
If you’ve been injured by a car at no fault of your own, you could claim for RTA compensation and damages. This money can be used to help you get over the trauma of the accident and aid your recovery.

Receiving compensation for injuries sustained following a road traffic accident allows the victim to concentrate on getting better by relieving or alleviating financial concerns.
