How to make a claim for a road traffic accident

Get started

Wondering how to make a compensation claim for a road traffic accident you or a loved one were involved in? If you have been a victim of a car or a road traffic accident (also known as RTA) that was not your fault, there are different ways you can get help. Our expert solicitors can help you work through a personal injury claim to get the compensation, rehabilitation and support you deserve, whether you were affected as a driver, a passenger, a cyclist or a pedestrian hit during the collision.

The first step is to get evidence at the scene of the accident and exchange details with all parties involved. Then, our solicitors can assess your circumstances and let you know if you have a valid claim before talking you through the process.

What you can claim

Our personal injury solicitors will be able to identify the financial losses related to your accident and ensure they are taken into account as part of your claim. Depending on your specific circumstances, you could claim:

  • Any loss of earnings or earning capacity
  • Out of pocket costs
  • Medical care, rehabilitation and medication costs
  • Insurance excess
  • Hire car charges
  • Damage on any property in your possession that was damaged in the accident
  • Travel expenses

Things to keep in mind

It is important to remember that you could recover compensation even if you think you were at fault or the other driver was uninsured or failed to stop. Typically, you have up to 3 years to make a claim, however, there are some exceptions, so we recommend contacting us at your earliest convenience. Our solicitors will be able to explain whether you are eligible for a claim from your first consultation with us.
