If you have had an accident in a road traffic collision, whether driving, riding a motorbike or horse, cycling or as a pedestrian, you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was not your fault.
The impact of any vehicle on the human body can result in injuries ranging from soft tissue damage, such as whiplash, through to permanent disabling injuries to the brain or spinal cord. Motorcyclists and cyclists are particularly vulnerable to very serious injuries.
If that accident was someone else’s fault due to careless driving, you would be entitled to compensation for your injuries. It is possible to claim such compensation up to three years after the accident; longer if the injured person is under eighteen.
In most cases, the driver responsible will be covered by their motor insurance policy. The insurers may even contact you promptly to offer you a sum of money. However, you should always consult a solicitor before accepting any offer of compensation. The insurance company’s objective is to keep their costs to a minimum, and they may not offer everything that you deserve.
Even if the driver is not insured, or you are a victim of a hit and run, we may be able to obtain compensation for you.
