Road Traffic AccidentIf you have been involved in road traffic accident, whether as a driver, passenger or even as a pedestrian, and have been injured as a result, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, treatment and out-of-pocket expenses.

Road traffic accidents happen, but if it was caused by the negligence of another party, then you have a right to recover any costs that you have incurred and to be compensated for your injuries. Put simply, if you are involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be able to claim.

A road traffic accident that you could claim for includes things like:

  • A rear-end shunt, or someone pulling out of a side road and causing a collision
  • Being a passenger in a vehicle driven by someone that causes a collision, such as a family member, friend, taxi or bus driver
  • Being knocked down whilst crossing the road

What Can I Claim For?

When you are injured following a road traffic accident, it can have a number of financial consequences. That’s why at, we focus on more than just the injury compensation.

Other expenses to consider that should be a part of your claim include:

  • Car Repairs
  • Loss of Earnings
  • Travel to and from medical appointments due to your accident
  • Gratuitous Care (we can claim an hourly rate for all the time you have needed assistance with things that you would have normally done for yourself, but for your injuries)
  • Medication and Treatment

How Does It All Work?

Making a claim for a road traffic accident couldn’t be simpler. It all starts with an informal chat to discuss your circumstances. We’ll talk about your prospects of success and what exactly we can do to help make life easier for you in the meantime.

As soon as we have taken on your case, we’ll submit your claim to your opponent using an online Portal, who have a fixed time in which to respond confirming whether or not they are accepting liability for the accident. If they do, we will negotiate directly with their insurers to settle the claim fairly and obtain any treatment that you need to assist your recovery.

If they do not accept responsibility for your accident, we can take your case to court, but don’t worry, as only a very small percentage of cases are actually settled in court. Most are dealt with directly with the other side by way of negotiation.

The LawClaim Difference

You will no doubt see adverts for personal injury lawyers offering to take on claims for a road traffic accident, but it takes experience and skill to get the best settlement.

The key difference that you’ll get when claiming for a road traffic accident through LawClaim is the way that we will handle your claim. Unfortunately many large firms that advertise on TV and radio have to cover their expensive marketing by using junior lawyers or case handlers who are not even qualified solicitors to handle your case, with as little time spent on your case as possible, in order to make it profitable for them.

But because at LawClaim, our clients come to us directly and we do not have the same overheads, we can afford to spend as much time and effort as is required to get the best possible settlement for you.

It’s not surprising that so many of our clients started their cases elsewhere, but transferred to us when the realised that they needed more time and effort to get the right result for them.

So what does this mean to you? By choosing LawClaim, depending on your circumstances, you could get:

  • A higher settlement for your injury claim
  • Private medical treatment
  • An interim payment to keep you afloat whilst your claim is being dealt with
  • Reimbursement of your travel costs, medication costs and other out-of-pocket expenses
