Types of Road Accident Claims

Whiplash Claims

Whiplash is one of the most common types of injury sustained in a road traffic accident. In this kind of injury, there is a sudden jerk that damages the neck, back, or shoulders. Due to the injury, you may be unable to perform your day to day physical activities.

If you have experienced any symptoms of whiplash during an accident, you may be able to claim for damages. Get in contact with us by calling 0800 124 4546 or complete our call back request form and one of our helpful agents will walk you through the process.

How long does a Whiplash claim take?

The duration depends upon the seriousness of the accident, but in most cases, it takes a few months to resolve a whiplash claim.

Factors which can affect the duration of your claim:

  • The seriousness of your health condition
  • Whether the third-party accepts fault
  • A missing party in a hit and run case
  • If there is any financial loss

What is the typical compensation amount for a Whiplash claim?

Please refer to our Compensation Calculator for an estimate.

If you were a passenger in a road traffic accident and have suffered injuries, then you are also able to claim for compensation.

It is important to note that as a passenger, you can NEVER be at fault for any road traffic accident. Therefore, you are eligible to make a full claim for all damages. Our firm has experienced and professional team with the expertise needed to resolve these types of claims quickly.

Driver Is A Friend or Family Member?

If you are concerned that you may be going against your own family or friends by claiming for personal injury as a passenger in an accident, then rest assured this is not the case. The claim is not against any individual but it is the insurance company.

Passenger personal injury claims are usually a lot quicker to resolve as you are not to blame for the accident. The only eligibility criteria is that the accident must have occurred within the last three years.

To start the claim process, get in touch and we will be happy to assist.

Road traffic accidents do not always involve another vehicle. Unfortunately pedestrians also become victims, and records show that children are the most vulnerable on our UK roads. Pedestrian accidents can happen due to a number of reasons. The most commons causes are due to drivers being under the influence of alcohol, speeding or whilst using their mobile phones.

If you have been injured in a road accident as a pedestrian, then you are entitled to compensation.

    Can I be at fault as a Pedestrian?

    Many people believe that if they’ve been involved in an accident as a passenger that it is always the fault of the driver. This is not always the case.

    Some examples of behaviour that could result in a pedestrian being at fault for causing an accident are; crossing whilst traffic lights are green on a road, failing to look at crosswalks or attempting to cross a motorway.

    There may also be occasions when it is not clear who is to blame for an accident. This is where our team of experts can provide guidance and help you through the claims process

       

      Motorcycle claims

      Motorbike accidents can also occur due to reckless actions of other road users, and often injury sustained in a motorbike accident are very severe. We have a team of solicitors that specialise in amputation and other severe fracture cases, and can work with you to resolve these claims quickly.

      So if you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, get in contact with us by calling 0800 124 4546 or complete our call back request form and one of our helpful agents will walk you through the claim process.

        How long do I have to claim for a motorcycle accident injury?

        The law states that you have three years to file your claim for any injury sustained in a motorcycle accident, but the period may be extended in cases where you are claiming on behalf of an underage person or someone who may have experienced injuries that reduce mental capacity.
