RTA Personal Injury Solicitors in the UK


If you have been injured in a road traffic accident (RTA) you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was someone else’s fault. This compensation is paid by the other person’s motor insurance company, or if they are not insured, through a compensation scheme operated by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.

You can deal directly with the other person’s insurance company but they will be trying to minimise the amount of compensation that they have to pay to you. It will maximise your chances of receiving the full amount of compensation you deserve if you use RTA personal injury solicitors in the UK.

Won’t my insurance company get compensation for me?

Your motor insurance policy is designed to pay compensation to other people if you are to blame for an RTA and if you have comprehensive cover for any damage to your own vehicle. It is not designed to pay compensation to you because that compensation should be paid by the other person’s motor insurance policy.

The solicitors that are employed by motor insurance companies are defence solicitors. Their purpose is to make sure that they don’t pay out too much compensation to third parties. This ensures that their motor insurance premiums are kept low to ensure that they remain competitive. In effect, insurance companies do not specialise in making compensation claims against other people.

How can RTA personal injury solicitors in the UK help me?

RTA personal injury solicitors UK such as those employed by Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) specialise in securing personal injury compensation for the victims of road accidents that were not their fault. You must usually make your compensation claim within three years of the date of your accident. The unique 30-second online test on the AAH website will tell you whether you have a valid claim.

If you have a valid claim, AAH will gather the information required to support your claim, including witness statements where appropriate. Once that has been done, your compensation claim will be presented to the other side.

The amount of compensation that you will receive cannot be guaranteed, but your lawyer will be able to advise you as to whether the compensation that you are offered is realistic or whether you should hold out for more.

You will not usually be required to attend court, although you may need to attend a medical assessment to determine the nature and severity of the injuries that you sustained in the accident.
