Road Traffic Accident

If you’ve suffered a road traffic accident in the last three years, you’ll no doubt have countless things on your mind. From worrying about your vehicle, to recovering from the injuries you sustained, it is a highly stressful period. You’ll need experience on your side to help you make things right.

If you’ve been through a road traffic accident, you could have sustained one of a huge number of injuries, ranging from comparatively minor to life-changing. As roads and vehicles are so different, there is no one category of injury you could have suffered.

Depending on the specific circumstances of your accident, you could have suffered from any of the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Back injury
  • Head trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Internal injuries

According to the Department for Transport, there are “a number of influences” behind road traffic accidents, including the distance travelled, mix of transport modes, motorists’ behaviour and external factors such as weather.

As a personal injury solicitor with many years of experience handling claims involving accidents at work, Hayward Baker has represented a variety of clients, getting them the reparations that they deserve. Our specialist team will be able to advise you on how to gather evidence in support of your claim in relation to an accident at work and we will provide representation on a no win no fee basis. Contact us today for free, no-obligation advice.

Whatever your injury, if it was the result of an accident at work, we can help – whether it was soft tissue damage, such as a cut or burn; an occupational illness; or a very severe injury, such as brain damage or a spinal injury. We can also assist bereaved families who have lost a loved one in a workplace fatality.

If you’ve had a road traffic accident in the last three years that was the fault of another motorist, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

In 2016, 24,101 people suffered serious injuries in road traffic accidents. In total, there were 181,384 casualties of all severities that year. Many of these incidents would have been caused by another motorist, including drivers not looking properly and driving over the speed limit or too fast for the road conditions. If this – or something similar – happened to you, you could proceed with a claim.

To make your claim stronger, try to gather as much evidence as possible. Any witness statements will also give your case credibility. Speaking to our team of solicitors will help you clarify whether you have a strong case.

What if the other driver is uninsured or untraced?

The level of compensation you could be awarded will depend on how severe your injury was and whether you lost any earnings through missing work, as well as any other relevant factors. This means it is difficult to say exactly what you could claim before beginning the process, but we have had real success with some of our other clients.

The best thing to do when you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident is to begin the claims process as soon as possible. Doing so will help ensure the details of the incident are clear in your mind when you decide to go ahead with the claim.

However, we understand that it may take time to fully come to terms with what happened. It is typically possible to make a claim up to three years after the accident happened. If you were under 18 at the time, though, you may be able to begin a claim up to three years after your 18th birthday.

When you’re looking for a solicitor to help you, we know you have a lot of choice. However, you’ll certainly be searching for a firm with the experience to take your claim forward, which we have in abundance. Our team of experts have secured hugely significant compensation sums for victims of accidents at work, so we’re confident in our ability to help you too.

We pride ourselves on the way we treat you as real person, rather than just another case. With us, you’ll receive a personalised and tailored service, unique to you as an individual. You’ll be assigned a case handler, who will help you to understand the entire process. We want you to feel as relaxed as possible throughout the process, which is why we ensure that one person manages the case from the very beginning.

Here at Hayward Baker, we understand the importance of communication, so you can be confident in the knowledge you won’t have to chase us for information. We’ll be in contact at every critical stage, making sure you’re fully updated about every element of your case as we know how important it is to you.
