Road Traffic Accidents

There is a very real risk that you or a member of your family could be involved in a road traffic accident at some point in your lifetime.

This is one of the most common causes of personal injury and we at SC Law recognise the importance of dealing with claims efficiently.  Our personal injury lawyers also act for claimants against uninsured drivers.

No matter how minor your injury may seem, you may be able to claim compensation if the accident was fully or partly the fault of someone else.  If you have suffered a very serious or catastrophic injury please go to our Serious Injuries Unit. 

Our personal injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with all different types of road accidents, including those involving:

  • Drivers
  • Passengers
  • Pedestrians
  • Motorcyclists
  • Pedal cyclists

Our expert personal injury lawyers will advise you on your injuries and any financial losses incurred and obtain the maximum amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.

We will advise you if an interim payment is possible to relieve financial pressure or to cover immediate expenses such as treatment or rehabilitation.

Compensation can go a long way to ease the burden that an accident has caused.  At SC Law, our lawyers have specialist knowledge in identifying and calculating your losses and expenses and will obtain the maximum amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.

If your claim is successful, the compensation you will receive is usually assessed under various categories which include:

General damages

For pain, suffering and loss of quality of life (ie if you are unable to carry out normal activities, such as sports and hobbies).  Common injuries caused in a road traffic accident include:

  • Whiplash to the neck and back
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Bruising and cuts
  • Psychological
  • Amputations

Choosing the right solicitor for your case is an important decision.  It is essential you chose a solicitor who is a specialist in road traffic accident claims.  Do not feel obliged to use a law firm appointed by your motor, home or any other legal expenses insurance.  When making a personal injury claim, you should be selective about which lawyer you use and you have the freedom to appoint any lawyer of your choice.

Losses and Expenses

Where appropriate we can claim for financial costs you have incurred as a result of your injury, such as loss of earnings, travelling, medication costs, rehabilitation, aids and equipment and assistance with housework or gardening. This may include future expenses where you are unable to return to work as a result of your injury, or have to return to a lesser paid job, which may include reduced benefits such as loss of pension or rehabilitation, aids and equipment and assistance with home help.
