Types of Road Injury Claims

Car Accident Claim

Have you have been involved in a car accident or crash? Other road users have a duty of care to drive carefully and safely and they are responsible for passenger safety within their car. If someone is at fault, or has been negligent then we will be able to help you get compensation for your car accident claim. Compensation for road traffic accident claims can include damages for your injuries, damage to your vehicle, potential loss of earnings, rehabilitation treatment and replacement vehicle hire…

Whiplash Claim

Whiplash is normally caused from being involved in a vehicle accident. Even a low speed collision can result in your head jolting violently, causing whiplash. It can take several hours or longer to feel the effects of whiplash and can get progressively worse as time goes by.

Motorcycle Accident Claim

Motorcyclists represent just 1% of UK road users yet account for up to 20% of serious injuries on our roads. The majority of these are caused through negligence of car drivers. If you have been a victim of a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault then you have every right to claim compensation for resulting injuries and losses.

Bicycle Accident Claim

Each year over 22,000 bicycle riders suffer injury on UK roads including serious injuries, a large percentage of these suffer from head injuries. If you have been injured through no fault of your own then you have every right to claim compensation for injury and the damage to your bike.

Passenger Accident Claim

As a passenger, be it in a car, bus, train or taxi it is very unlikely that you have had any responsibility for the cause of the accident and therefore you are an innocent victim. If the driver was to blame, or a third party was negligent then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
