Unfortunately, if you are involved in a road traffic accident, then it can have horrific consequences. For example, the injuries can range from a few cuts and bruises to fatalities. As no two victims are the same, no two accidents or injuries are the same either.
An accident can happen very suddenly and unexpectedly and the trauma it causes can be huge, particularly if the accident was not your fault. Once you are over the shock, you should contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to see if you can make a personal injury claim.
Here are some of the more common road traffic accidents we come across:
- Bicycle accidents
- Accidents caused by potholes or bad road surfaces
- Multi vehicle pile ups
- Accidents with buses and lorries
- Hit and runs
- Hitting a pedestrian
- Car crashes
- Accidents with motorbikes
You may want to use the solicitors to make a personal injury compensation claim, if one of these, or any other type of accident is caused by someone else, and you sustain injuries that need medical attention.
Types of injuries
There are lots of different types of injuries, but if you are hurt in an accident that was not your fault, some of the injuries that might make you want to make a claim are:
- Bikers arm
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Back and spinal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Facial injuries
- Road rash
In the case of a fatality, it would be the bereaved family that contacts our solicitors to make a fatal injury claim.
It is not just your injuries that our solicitors will claim for
An injury claim would be made up of any area of your life that has been affected by the accident. Any costs and losses caused because of the accident can also be claimed for, such things as:
- Replacement of damaged goods
- Cost of care if you are no longer able to look after yourself

- Home adaption if necessary
- Medical costs
- Travel costs
