Road Traffic Accidents

I have a great deal of experience in dealing with road traffic accident compensation claims for drivers, passengers, bike riders and pedestrians.

If you have been involved in this type of accident, then ring now to speak to me.  There are no costs and no obligations.  

No Win No Fee

If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible to make a claim for accident compensation, please give me a call.  Why wait?  Get an answer straight away from a specialist solicitor.

Even if you have been in an incident caused by an uninsured or untraceable driver, I can still help.  I will be able to pursue a claim for you through the Motor Insurers' Bureau .

Different Types of Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims:

  • Injury to you or a passenger including whiplash
  • Trauma or distress to you or a passenger
  • Loss of potential earnings or income
  • Damage to your car or bike
  • Damage to or loss of personal property
  • Cost of replacement vehicle hire
  • Insurance excess
  • Other costs including medical fees 

I have put together a short guide to what you should and should not do following a road traffic accident. Follow the link below for more information. Read the Road Traffic Accident Guide.

What happens to my compensation claim if I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt? 

If you were injured in a road accident that wasn’t your fault, but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt, it will almost certainly affect your personal injury compensation claim. 

The law on this is very clear. If you are not wearing your seatbelt when you are injured, the amount of compensation you receive will be reduced: 

  • By 25% if your injuries would have been entirely avoided if you had been wearing a seatbelt
  • By 15% if the seatbelt would have reduced the severity of your injuries 

If the failure to wear your seatbelt made no different to the injuries you sustained, the amount of compensation you received will not be reduced. 

Many insurance companies will try to convince you that you could lose a bigger portion of your compensation than you actually will. For this reason, it’s essential that you enlist the help of a personal injury solicitor who has a great deal of experience in handling this type of case.

Mr Saunders

Mr Macwilliam has been very patient as my husband is dyslexic, some things needed explaining a few times and in other ways so Alan could understand. The interim payments were a huge help while the claim was going through.
