Road traffic accident legal experts
The term “road traffic accident” is used to describe an incident which has taken place involving a vehicle, such as a car or other motor vehicle, motorcycles or bicycles, where someone has been injured, such as a driver, cyclist, passenger or pedestrian.
Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors have a vast amount of expertise when it comes to representing people who have been injured as a result of a road traffic accident and can ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
What are No Win No Fee agreements?
The vast majority of Accident Advice Helpline cases involving road traffic accidents are dealt with under the terms of a No Win No Fee agreement. What this means is, if you were to lose your case, you would not have to pay anything so there is absolutely no financial risk to you. For more information about No Win No Fee agreements, click here.
What type of injuries can be caused in a road traffic accident?
There are many types of injuries which can be caused as a result of a road traffic accident, from mild whiplash injuries to quite serious injuries and in some instances, the injuries can even be fatal.
Our expert solicitors will not only seek the best possible outcome to your compensation claim, but will also ensure you get the right treatment and rehabilitation necessary to maximise your chances of recovery.
I am not sure if I have a claim. What do I do?
If you are not sure whether you have a claim, please read our frequently asked questions. If you are still unsure, please contact one of our legal advisers who will take details of your claim and advise you whether or not you have a claim.
How much compensation do you get if you are injured in a road traffic accident?
It is impossible to say how much compensation you are entitled to if you have been injured in a road traffic accident as the amount will depend on your circumstances and the nature of your injuries. The difference between compensation for an injury which has resulted in you being unable to work for four weeks will be significantly different from someone whose injuries will prevent them from ever going to back to work.
However, our expert solicitors will be able to provide you with guidance once they have taken full details of your case.

What if the driver took off?
It’s not uncommon for a driver to not realise they bumped into your bike as they may not have seen you in their blind spot and so drove off without stopping. In other situations, drivers may not stop for unexplained reasons. We can help you with difficult cases such as these as well as hit and run accidents or accidents involving an uninsured driver.
How much compensation can I claim?
Obviously, the level of compensation you can claim depends on the seriousness of your injuries. If your accident was caused due to someone else’s negligence, your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousands of pounds.
