Rear – End Shunts

A common problem with road traffic accidents is that neither party wish to accept fault for the accident. I know of many clients who after a car accident which may be obviously the other drivers fault but upon speaking to them they not only say it was not their fault but also try and pass the blame onto you. This can often lead to lengthy negotiations in personal injury claims and sometimes fault may be split in terms of a ratio say; 70/30 or 60/40.

Obviously we want to prove that the other is 100% at fault for the accident, and in many cases this can be a straight forward and relatively simple process. The topic of this blog is Rear – End Shunts – the reason being that liability in rear end shunt cases is usually easy to establish. A rear end shunt is a term used to describe a car hitting another car from behind. In these cases, it is highly likely that liability will be admitted by the other side, as it is often fairly apparent that fault lies with the driver who came from behind and hit the car in front.

Because of the straightforward nature of these types of cases, most of our clients who have been involved in rear end shunt accidents have a speedy and successful conclusion to their case.  Accidents that happen after the 30th April 2010 are in a simpler more streamlined system which means that insurers have to respond with their liability decision within 15 days of the claim notification form being sent. This is opposed to the nearly 4 month period they had under the old system. This means that many of our clients who have been in rear end shunt accidents after the above get their claims concluded in a much quicker time frame.

Often injuries stemming from rear end shunts include the victim suffering from whiplash. At The Injury Lawyers we are able to offer early private medical intervention at no cost to our clients. This treatment can include physiotherapy, chiropractic or osteopathic treatment for which on the NHS there may be long waiting lists. I can hear you saying – ‘well, how is it free?’ Well, if you win your case the treatment is paid by the other side, and in the event you lose your case the cost is covered by insurance.

At The Injury Lawyers we work hard on behalf of our clients to get them the best possible amount of compensation.
