Road Traffic Accident Solicitors
Road Traffic Accidents inevitably leave victims in traumatic and difficult circumstances
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
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.
