Serious Road Traffic Accident Claims

If you, or a loved one, have suffered a serious injury following a road traffic accident (RTA), it is likely to have a huge impact on your life and that of your family and loved ones. From employment prospects to the effect on relationships and someone’s physical and mental health, the aftermath of a serious injury caused by an RTA can be devastating.  

Due to the nature of these cases, claiming compensation can be complicated and lengthy. Therefore, finding the right legal team is essential.

At The Personal Injury People, our highly experienced Road Traffic Accident lawyers can advise if you or a loved one sustained a serious injury in an RTA accident that was not your fault and whether you were the driver, passenger, or pedestrian. We can also help other road users, such as cyclists or motorcyclists who have been seriously injured in road traffic accidents. Our personal injury lawyers can also help clients make a compensation claim on behalf of someone else, such as your child or someone who has been injured so severely, they do not have the mental capacity to make the claim for themselves.

If you want to find out if you can make a compensation claim, contact our team for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case. Call 0800 731 7555 or complete the enquiry form to get in touch.

How long do I have to make a compensation claim for a serious RTA injury?

In the UK, there is a time limit set by law, which is known as the limitation period, and you need to follow it if you want to make a compensation claim for a brain injury. Typically, this period is three years from the date of the injury or from when you realised that your injury was caused by negligence. However, there may be some exceptions, particularly in cases involving minors or people who lack mental capacity. Therefore, it is essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

How much compensation will I get?

Every case is individual so to fully evaluate your claim, we need a medical report. This gives us an insight into the extent of your injury and identifies whether you can expect to make a full recovery.

Once we know this, we can assess the value of your case. In addition to your general damages (the money you receive for your injury), we also take into account your out of pocket expenses (what we term ‘special damages’). When these are clear, we can add them to the value of your claim. If you’re contacted by an insurance company, it’s important not to accept any offers of settlement or compensation without seeking or obtaining legal advice.

How long does it take to receive my compensation for a serious injury claim?

There is no set length of time to settle a serious injury or road traffic accident claim, It depends on a number of factors, including the details of your case whether it is contested (disputed by the other party involved). Even when not contested, serious injury cases tend to take longer due their complexity and the assessment process to determine the appropriate compensation for your injuries. However, one of our main aims will be to secure an early admission of liability where possible, so that we can apply for an interim payment to cover any financial needs while we progress your claim and negotiate for the maximum compensation for you.
