Road Traffic Accidents

rta_bannerWith thousands of accidents on Britain’s roads every year, claims for road-traffic accidents (RTAs) are common.

If you have been involved in an RTA that was not your fault, we can help. We have extensive experience of acting for drivers, passengers, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians. Our team will advise you on how much compensation you are likely to receive and will work tirelessly to ensure you get maximum amount possible.

If you need medical support or physiotherapy because of the injuries you have sustained, our team can put you in contact with experienced medical and physiotherapy providers.

If, after the accident, you cannot drive your vehicle because it has been damaged, we can arrange vehicle recovery and storage. We can also organise a hire vehicle for you.

If you need to contact one of our RTA experts, contact us today on 020 7249 1337

Pedestrians

  • Pedestrians are the most vulnerable group in road-traffic accidents
  • Pedestrians must be given the right of way by drivers
  • If you were hit by a car but the driver of the vehicle did not stop, you may still be able to make a claim. We have particular expertise in these claims, which are lodged with the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB)
  • It is important that you report the accident to the police and seek medical attention

Motorcyclists

  • Motorcyclists are vulnerable road users. A collision can lead to serious injuries
  • Your claim would usually be made against either the driver of the vehicle responsible for the accident or against his or her insurers (sometimes, it may be against both). But it might be against a land owner who, for example, has caused an accident by putting up incorrect signs

Passengers

  • You can make a claim if you were a passenger in a vehicle driven by someone else, such as a car, bus, coach, tram or train

Cyclists

  • As a cyclist, if you are involved in an accident, you are most likely to be claiming against a driver of a car or bus. But you could claim against the council if they caused the accident by neglecting the road.
