    "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."

    Using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries


    Are you using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries?

    The news that the numbers of road traffic injuries continues to fall is of course good news. Yet the figure is still far too high; a sentiment you will probably agree with if you happen to have been injured in an RTA yourself. Using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries is a wise decision.

    The first thing you should consider, (if you haven’t already), is that you may be able to claim financial compensation, if of course the blame for the accident is down to someone other than yourself; and if you need help doing so, then you should contact us here at AAH, and we’ll work with you to ensure you get the compensation to which you are legally entitled.

    The 4 important “qualifiers” every personal injury claim requires

    To establish that your claim meets the necessary requirements to be eligible for compensation, you’ll need to be aware of the following.

    • The blame for the RTA in which you were involved and injured must be attributable to someone other than yourself
    • The RTA must have happened within the three year period immediately preceding the date of your claim
    • The injury you’re claiming for must be severe enough, or have significant enough consequences (i.e. loss of earnings, leaving you with a permanent disability, etc.) to justify the raising of a claim
    • Medical proof of the injury will be required to back up your claim

    The Ogden Tables cover all types of injuries, including road traffic injuries

    Every type of injury (including road traffic injuries) has a set amount of compensation allocated to it. These figures are summarised in a report known as the Ogden Tables. These are actuarial tables, which had been prepared by a group of actuaries, including the government actuary, together with lawyers, accountants, and insurers, and are for use in all personal injury and fatal accident cases.

    Copies can be obtained from the Stationery Office. They are however quite difficult to manipulate and you will find it much easier to go to our website, and take what AAH refer to as the 30 second test.

    Open Claim Calculator

    The 30 second test

    We’ve installed a HOW MUCH calculator on the homepage of our website. It’s freely available for anybody to use, whether or not they decide to pursue their claim via the no-win, no-fee* service that we offer here at AAH.

    Simply supply six pieces of information, and the automatic calculator will give you an estimate for the basic amount of compensation allocated for that particular type of injury. Any additional expenses that you feel may need covering can be discussed with your solicitor when you register your claim for road traffic injuries.

    If you need help

    If you have any questions or concerns regarding your potential injury claim, you can phone our helpline and have a chat with one of our experienced advisors. The helpline is accessed by calling 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.

    If you choose to use AAH, as recommended by Dame Esther Rantzen, you can rest assured your claim will be in good hands. Using AAH to claim compensation for traffic injuries may be your best decision for a long time.
