Road Traffic Accidents
If you are injured in a road traffic accident (sometimes called road traffic collisions) provided somebody else is at fault then you will almost certainly be able to claim compensation.
There are many different types of claim but as long as the accident occurs on a road or pavement (or possibly even private land such as a car park) and involves a vehicle, there may be a claim.
Who Can I Claim Against?
If you have been injured whilst you were riding or driving you will have a claim if someone else is at least partly to blame. The other party does not need to be another driver, motorcyclist or cyclist.
Third parties can include a Local Authority if, for example, they have failed to maintain a road or footpath or allowed your visibility to be obscured or reduced e.g. as a result of an untrimmed hedge.
Claims can also be pursued against the owners of a poorly maintained private road (provided you have a lawful right of way) and you can even claim for injuries caused by defective vehicles or objects falling from vehicles.
If you travel on public transport and suffer injury as a result of the actions of the driver or of another driver then you may have a claim.
Claims can also be pursued by passengers, pedestrians or cyclists who are knocked over by other vehicles. There may be a claim even if you do not know the details of the other driver (Untraced Drivers Claims) or that driver turns out to be uninsured (Uninsured Drivers Claims).
