How do I make a road traffic accident claim?

The road traffic accident claims process can be complex. If you or a loved one have been involved in a road traffic accident, it’s always best to get in touch with our team so we can discuss your case in more detail and carefully assess the best way forward for you.

When looking to make a road accident claim, these are the steps to follow:

  • Contact us today to speak to one of our expert personal injury lawyers, who will be able to discuss your claim with you.
  • We will assess your claim and contact the insurers of the party to blame and commence the process.
  • We will liaise with the police and witnesses.
  • To support your personal injury claim, we’ll need to obtain medical evidence. We’ll obtain this evidence with your permission, and then assess your medical records and arrange for you to have an examination with an independent medical expert who specialises in providing expert medical evidence required in cases such as this.
  • We’ll ensure you have access to the best quality treatment and rehabilitation to maximise the chances of a full recovery and future independence.
  • In most cases, negotiations will lead to a successful conclusion of a claim for road traffic accident injuries. However, there are occasions when a successful settlement cannot be reached and we will need to commence Court Proceedings and proceed to a hearing before a Judge. The vast majority of cases reach a compromise without the need for a full hearing before a Judge.
  • If your case needs to proceed to Court, rest assured that we will fight for you every step of the way. We will never try to settle your case for less than it is worth.
  • Our expert solicitors will keep you informed and supported as the claim progresses.
