Have you been involved in a road traffic accident?

A road traffic accident is where two or more vehicles are involved in a collision, or someone is injured or killed on the roads. They’re usually caused by things such as reckless driving or poor weather conditions. If you have been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could claim compensation.

The most common claims for road traffic accidents include:

Whiplash

This affects the neck, back and shoulder muscles after the body receives a sudden jolt in a vehicle that collides with another.

What do you need to know about road traffic accident claims?

What should I do after a road traffic accident?

Find out if the other driver has insurance and note their registration number. Try to collect as much information as you can about the accident as well as your losses and injuries. Retain any police references too and details of your medical appointments. Our experts can answer any of your legal questions. 

I was hit by an uninsured driver. Can I claim?

Yes. If you were hit by an uninsured driver as, with the help of our panel of solicitors, you can claim through the government-backed Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB). 

Can I still claim if my accident happened abroad?

Yes. This applies if you were on a package holiday while involved in an on-road collision in another country, but you need all the relevant paperwork, particularly for insurance.

Can passengers claim compensation?

Yes, if a passenger is involved in a collision on the road and they sustain injuries through no fault of their own, then they are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
