Road Traffic Accidents

If you have been injured as a *driver* or *passenger* in a vehicle, you may well be entitled to compensation. As an injured passenger, you will almost always have a right to claim for compensation against the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in and/or the driver of any other vehicle involved in your accident.

*No Win, No Fee*

In *straightforward road traffic cases* - such as a 'rear end shunt' or where you have been injured as a passenger - we will act for you on a No Win, No Fee basis where appropriate, with *no* success fee deducted. You would always receive *100%* of any compensation awarded to you.

If you have been injured on a road as a *pedestrian*, you may well have a right to claim compensation against the driver of the vehicle which struck you. Many drivers provide the defence that they "didn't see" the pedestrian, or they "suddenly came from nowhere". Such a defence is frequently unsuccessful. The courts have imposed a heavy onus upon vehicle drivers to act in a safe and careful manner, and avoid injuring a pedestrian crossing a road or *who they should anticipate* might be crossing a road.

It is helpful with any road traffic case for you to obtain the name and address of any driver involved in your accident; the make, model and registration number of their vehicle; and, if possible, their vehicle insurance details. You should also consider reporting the accident to the police.

If you have been involved in an accident where the responsible driver is *uninsured* or *untraceable*, we can consider making an application on your behalf to the Motor Insurers Bureau. This is an organisation funded by the leading insurers to compensate the innocent victims of uninsured and untraced drivers.
