Traffic incident


On average there are 40,000 road accidents which happen in the United Kingdom. Some 30,000 people per year suffer from personal injuries as a result of a traffic incident, many of whom start a compensation claim as a result. Due to most road users driving cars, this vehicle type is by far the most common to be involved in traffic collision claims launched against negligent drivers. If you’ve accidentally crashed your car, the incident was not your fault and there was negligence displayed on the part of the offending driver, considering claiming compensation for the crash is common. Road users have a responsibility to each other to use the roads carefully, and if someone else has caused a traffic accident which, in turn, meant you suffering physically, financially or emotionally, successfully claiming would mean compensating you for your losses.  Take our 30 second test to see if you can make a claim for a traffic incident you have been involved in.
