Road Traffic Accident Claims

If you have been involved in a road accident that wasn’t your fault, as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. You may also be able to make a claim for compensation if you are involved in a road accident abroad or on holiday.

Claiming for an accident on the road

Being involved in a road accident could leave you with injuries ranging from bruising and whiplash to serious head and spinal injuries. A road accident can be life-changing, not only for those who have been injured but also for families and loved ones.

A road accident can occur because of numerous reasons. No matter what the reasons are, you need to be able to prove that the person you are making the claim against was in the wrong. Most car accidents claims occur due to:

  • Negligence, such as mobile phone use, eating or drinking, or alcohol and drug consumption while driving.
  • Weather conditions. Road accidents can occur in many instances due to adverse weather conditions such as snow, rainy weather and icy roads.
  • Recklessness. Driving with no concern for traffic signs is another major cause of road accidents. Speeding can also be termed as recklessness and distractions in or outside of the car can also lead to road accidents.
  • Poor road maintenance. Poor roads are another leading cause of road accidents. Construction, poor road signs and potholes are examples of poor road maintenance.
  • Car malfunction. Cars will in most cases have a system failure system where one of the devices may have stopped functioning. Common equipment that may fail in the car include the brakes, poor road tyre traction and steering wheel malfunction.
