Serious road accidents

dangerous road claims

In the UK, there are thousands of injuries caused by road accidents every year, many of which involve significant pain and suffering for the injured parties. Falling victim to a road accident can be extremely distressing, particularly when there are life-changing implications. It is even worse when you feel a strong sense of injustice, knowing that the accident occurred through no fault of your own. But there is no need to suffer in silence as the law can entitle injured victims to claim compensation for serious road accidents.

Road accidents can cause many different kinds of injuries, from bone fractures to whiplash, but we are able to take on claims for serious injuries that you may have suffered, whether you were injured as a driver, biker or as a pedestrian. We are here to prove that you bear no responsibility for the accident, and that you are entitled to receive compensation for the harm caused to you.

The implications of serious road accidents

Serious road accidents can cause far more severe injuries that we would expect from a more minor incident. For instance, if a collision occurred between two vehicles travelling at a high speed, we would typically see a more forceful impact on the drivers and passengers involved.

Injuries resulting from serious road accidents could include fractures, severe muscular injuries, external and internal bleeding, and organ damage. In the worst cases, the victims could face brain damage, amputation or paralysis, all of which can lead to harmful and lifelong implications.

Besides the immediate pain and suffering, some injuries may necessitate long-term or even permanent care, whether this means regular physiotherapy, or the appointment of a live-in carer. Managing injuries on an ongoing basis can involve considerable expense, which is one of the reasons why we believe it is so important for victims to claim compensation.

Claiming compensation for a serious accident

The compensation you could be awarded will depend on all kinds of considerations, as the Judicial College sets out guidelines recommending compensation for each type of injury, and for each degree of severity. With the specific details of your injury, we can use these official guidelines to estimate your potential compensation award in the General Damages category together with expert medical evidence.

There is also another compensation category – Special Damages – under which you can recover compensation for any financial losses or expenses suffered. For example, if you have lost earnings due to time off work, if you need to pay for carers, or if you need to pay for travel to and from treatment appointments, these factors could all be taken into account. We can even anticipate any costs that you will incur in the months or years to come if you are predicted to incur ongoing expenses.

Start your claim today

Claiming for serious road accidents doesn’t need to be complicated and stressful. As expert injury lawyers, we can use our expertise to do all of the legwork for you in order to make the claim process hassle-free.

If we think we have a good chance of winning your claim, we may even be able to offer No Win, No Fee representation, meaning we can write off your legal fees if the claim is unsuccessful, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place.
