Injured in a road traffic accident in the UK or abroad?
At Adams Harrison, we offer no win no fee representation and advice – and all of it from friendly and approachable lawyers that are members of the Association of Personal Injury lawyers.
Who can claim for road traffic accident injuries
Even if you were not a driver you can still claim for injuries sustained on the road. Road traffic accidents (RTA) can cause injuries to all sorts of people including:
• Drivers and passengers including minors.
• Cycling accident claims.
• Motor cycle accident claims.
• Pedestrian accident claims
We are happy to discuss every case with you, without obligation.
How to claim for a road traffic accident
The first step is to contact our Personal Injury Department to find out if you have an RTA claim. We can help you through the process from start to finish. This will include gathering information from you about the accident and assessing the best way that we can help you.
Can I claim if the other driver is not insured?
Although it is illegal to drive without insurance unfortunately a few choose to do so. If you have been injured by an uninsured driver, a stolen car or even been involved in a hit and run we can assist you by pursuing a claim for your injuries through the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).
The Motor Insurers Bureau runs a separate fund that every motor insurer pays into to pay compensation for the actions of uninsured drivers. Please contact us to see how we can assist you in making such a claim.
Please note that whilst the MIB will pay your legal costs in pursing a claim under the Insured Drivers’ Agreement, they will not pay your legal costs in pursuing a claim under the Untraced Drivers’ Agreement and therefore we must pursue such a claim under a different funding arrangement which we will discuss with you during our initial meeting.
What are the time limits for road traffic accident claims?
To qualify for a road traffic accident compensation claim, you must have been injured within the last three years. The accident must also have been all or partly someone else’s fault.
• If you were 18 or over when the traffic accident happened you have got three years to make a personal injury claim from the accident date.
• If you were under 18 at the time and no claim was made you have three years from your 18th until your 21st birthday to make claim.
There are circumstances where you may have longer and if you are unsure please get in touch with us to allow us to advise you.
