Road accident solicitors

Road traffic accidents in the UK result in around 200,000 injuries to drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motor cyclists every year. Some 40000 of these injuries are serious with more than 3000 deaths.

Sometimes both parties have some responsibility for the accident but more often one party is responsible and if there is injury to the innocent party a claim for financial compensation may be possible. In fact even if the injured party was partly to blame there may still be a right ot compensation although the amount will be reduced in proportion to the degree of blame.

A claim may be possible for various consequences of the injury such as pain and suffering, medical or nursing expenses, the cost of medicines or prescriptions, travelling expenses, loss of income/wages. Apart from the injury a claim may be possible for loss of or damage to a vehicle or other property, insurance excess, hire car costs.

In the case of serious injuries leaving permanent disabilty compensation may be payable for such items as loss of future earnings, loss of earning capacity, being disadvantaged in the labour market, loss of enjoyment of life, costs of ongoing care or special equipment.
