    "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

    Solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay


    If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and the driver of the other vehicle was using a mobile phone device at the time of the accident, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation via a solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay. Contact Accident Advice Helpline today for more information.

    Mobile phones and RTAs

    It is a legal offence to drive whilst using a hand-held mobile phone.  This includes:

    • Making a phone call using the handheld phone
    • Making a phone call using the loudspeaker microphone on the phone
    • Texting

    Every qualified solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay knows that it is only safe and legal to use a mobile phone if it is connected to Bluetooth, or has another hands-free device available.

    However, even if a mobile phone is connected to a hands-free device and it is felt that a driver was distracted whilst using this, they may still be regarded as being liable for an accident and having caused an offence of dangerous or careless driving. In such an instance a solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay will be able to help you make a claim for compensation against the driver.

    Who can claim?

    If you have been injured in an accident which was caused by someone else then you can make a claim for compensation. Obviously, the injury itself needs to have been serious enough to warrant compensation to be awarded.  This will usually mean that it has had a negative impact on your life, or has had a financial impact.

    Open Claim Calculator

    For example, a solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay will be able to help you make a claim if you have had to take time off from work to recover, or you have had to reduce your physical activities to compensate for your injury.  This may be for a temporary period of time or a longer term.

    The accident and injuries for which you are using a solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay to make a claim should have occurred within the last three years. This is because there are strict legal deadlines imposed for how long you have to make a claim. Once these deadlines have passed no solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay will be able to help you make a claim.

    However, there are situations in which the time limits do not apply, so it is important that you speak to your legal representative to get the very best advice for your specific case as quickly as possible.

    How much can you claim with a solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay?

    The amount of compensation you are likely to be awarded will depend on a variety of factors.  As a result, it is often difficult to give an accurate figure at the start of a case. However, if you would like to get an estimate of how much you could anticipate being awarded you can take our 30-second test today.  Your solicitor on the Isle of Colonsay will be able to give you more information as your case progresses.
