If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident you may have a number of questions around what the term ‘road traffic accident’ covers?
With a wealth of experience in various types of personal injury claims, many of our road traffic accident lawyers and solicitors specialise in certain areas.
Our specialists have previously secured six and seven-figure compensation settlements and helped people after all sorts of traffic accidents.
Car accident claims – If you’ve been injured in a car crash, we have the knowledge and experience to help recover what’s owed to you.
Motorcycle accident claims – These incidents can be severe, and are often disputed by any other parties involved. We can help establish your situation and move forward towards resolving the road accident claim.
Cycling accident claims – Suffering a bike accident injury is a terrible experience – and establishing liability can be tricky. Our expert road traffic accident solicitors regularly help cyclists regain their losses and move forward with their lives.
Pedestrian accident claims – Pedestrians are significantly more vulnerable than motorists. This puts you at a higher risk of suffering from a severe injury when an accident occurs while walking along or crossing the road. Speaking with our solicitors about what you can do in the aftermath is a good start to getting your life back on track.
Passenger claims – Sometimes you can be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you’ve been a passenger in an accident, it’s possible that you could seek compensation for a road traffic accident, regardless of the severity of your injuries.
Public transport claims – Public transport in the UK is rigorously regulated, and the drivers that are employed for the job are highly trained. Sometimes, however, things can go wrong. If you’ve been hurt whilst traveling on the bus, train or tram, you might be owed compensation.
Claims against uninsured motorists – Being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver can be a worrying experience, as can being unable to trace the other party in an accident. We can take the worry out of the claim and let you feel comfortable and secure during the process.
Whiplash claims – Whiplash is a common injury sustained in accidents involving sudden stops and sharp movements. If you think you’ve developed whiplash from a car crash, you may be able to seek legal support to recover any costs owed to you for things such as time needed off work.
Being involved in a car crash or an accident on the road can be a difficult time for all those involved.

Road accidents can happen for any number of reasons. To make a successful road traffic accident compensation claim, it is our job to prove the person you are making the claim against was at fault and in the wrong. Listed below are some of the causes of road accidents:
Negligence: From mobile phone use, eating, drinking or changing music to being impaired by alcohol or drug use.
Poor road maintenance: Poor construction, road signs and potholes
Recklessness: Speeding, driving with no concern for traffic, failing to pay attention to signs and distractions in and outside of the car can lead to road accidents.
Vehicle malfunction: Common equipment failure includes things like brakes, steering malfunction and poor tyre traction.
Weather conditions: Snow, rain and ice can all cause RTAs.
