Have you been injured in a road traffic accident? Our road traffic accident solicitors could help

If you are involved in a road traffic accident, it can be one of the most traumatic experiences you will ever suffer. Not only do you have to cope with such a terrifying event but you may suffer injuries which mean a lengthy recovery time, ongoing medical expenses or loss of earnings because you are unable to go to work.

Anyone who has been injured as a result of a traffic accident could potentially make a claim with help from our car accident claim solicitors.

You don’t have to have been driving. You may have been the passenger in a car or on a bus, for example, or you could have been injured just crossing the road.

Can I claim road traffic accident compensation? Advice from our car accident solicitors

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident which wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation for the trauma you have suffered, medical treatment, loss of earnings because of time off work and any ongoing care needs.

Some common types of road traffic accident claims dealt with by our experts, who are among the best car accident solicitors in Northern Ireland, are:

  • Pedestrians who have been struck by a vehicle while crossing the road
  • Whiplash caused by your car being hit from behind
  • Being injured while riding as a passenger in a car or bus

Types of injuries our RTA solicitors see frequently in road traffic accident claims

Road traffic accidents can lead to all sorts of injuries, from minor cuts or soft tissue damage to serious and even fatal injuries. These are some of the most common:

  • Whiplash, where soft tissue damage is caused because of sudden movement to your head, neck and back
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Organ damage
  • Fatalities

How much compensation could I claim?

Levels of compensation for road traffic accidents can vary enormously, depending on the injuries suffered. For example, a minor whiplash claim will result in a smaller compensation pay out when compared to life-changing injuries such as a spine or brain injuries.

Other factors will be taken into account, including any loss of earnings as well as on-going medical, care and accommodation needs, both now and in the future. Some of the most serious road traffic accident claims have resulted in eight-figure compensation awards.

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

— Avril McDowell

A professional team on top of their game who will take you by the hand and guide you through the legal system and achieve the best outcome for you the client. I have used many local law firms for various reasons and found Colm Owens and his colleagues to be leagues ahead, totally transparent easily contactable and always deal with you in a friendly down to earth manner but not afraid to show their teeth when the pressures on in a court of law. Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

— Sam Davidson

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations. Purchasing a property through the turbulent past few months, Andrea went above and beyond to steady the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend O’Hare and indeed Andrea.

Andrea Bell was our solicitor who dealt with both the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to return a call and answer any questions and was quick to respond to emails. She made sure the process was as smooth and stress free as possible. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her for any conveyancing needs.
