Road Traffic Accidents

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident in the last 3 years and it was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries and financial losses.

You can make a claim if you were a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist or cyclist and were injured. A claim could be made against the insurance company of the driver or third party who caused the accident.

Road Traffic Accident FAQs

If you were a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist, passenger or driver of a vehicle and you were injured in an accident through no fault of your own, within the last 3 years, you may be able to make a claim.

Equally, if the state of the road caused your injury, you are entitled to make a claim against the owner of the land as they have a duty to inspect and maintain the road. Examples include if you were riding your bicycle and you fell due to a pothole in the road.

It is very important you make your claim as soon as possible. If you wait, there may not be as much evidence available to support your claim.

By law, for the purposes of a road traffic accident, you only have 3 years from the date of the accident to bring a claim. If you do not do this, then the claim will be ‘statute barred’ meaning you cannot bring your claim. It is then highly unlikely you will be able to receive any compensation for your injuries. We would encourage you to speak with one of our solicitors today on 01244 312306 or email to discuss your accident.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, this can be a very distressing and traumatic time. Please contact our Road Traffic Accident team on 01244 312306 or email to speak to our helpful, experienced and friendly team.

At Oliver & Co Solicitors, we believe that if you have been injured due to the negligence of another party then you should make a claim to gain the compensation you deserve. You are certainly entitled to do so.

Road traffic accidents can devastate not only your life but that of your family and friends. You may require round the clock care, you may be unable to work and incur a loss of earnings, or you may even lose your job which will have an impact on paying for your home and bills.

The impact on innocent victims is tremendous. Fortunately, in most cases, the negligent party will be insured, and their insurers will deal with matters on their behalf. We deal with your case on a no win, no fee basis which means you do not pay any legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful. There is no reason why you should not make a claim to obtain what you deserve!

Often following a road traffic accident, insurers for the responsible party may contact you directly and offer you money to settle your claim. Our advice is NOT to accept these offers until you have received professional legal advice.

Unless you are a specialist personal injury solicitor you will not be able to fully value your injury and know what it is worth and you are likely to settle your claim for less. Furthermore, if you accept an early offer from the defendant’s insurers, it will be in full and final settlement, meaning that you will be unable to claim any further damages if your injuries do not resolve once the claim has settled. This would be devastating, for example, if your symptoms did continue and they prevented you from working in the future. It may have been possible to include a claim for future loss of earnings but once the claim is settled, it is then too late to do this.

At Oliver & Co Solicitors, our advice is always to speak with us if you receive an offer. We can provide you with clear and practical advice to make sure you are not being undercompensated for your injuries. Give us a call on 01244 312306 or email
