If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be due financial compensation to ease your pain.

Common causes of road traffic accidents

You can make a car accident claim if the incident you were involved in wasn’t your fault. In fact, you could have been an innocent pedestrian, a cyclist, a motorcyclist or a passenger in a car, bus or taxi. Whatever your status, if you were involved in an accident, suffered injuries as a result and can establish who was responsible for the accident, then you can make a claim for car accident compensation.

Common causes of accidents are:

  • Driver error
  • Speeding
  • Driver distracted
  • Reckless driving
  • Drink/drug driving
  • Severe weather

How to pursue a car accident claim

In most cases, a driver can be found to be liable for the accident, which may have involved crashing into another vehicle, another road user, a pedestrian or a stationary object (such as a wall, gate, barrier or streetlight). This will involve an experienced road traffic accident solicitor establishing the clear facts of the incident and deciding if one party was negligent in their actions, much as what happens with pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and motorcycle accidents.

A road traffic accident claim must be initiated within three years of the accident taking place. At Ison Harrison, we offer a free initial consultation to work out if clear liability exists.

In 2021 the whiplash reforms presented significant changes to the landscape in terms of low value personal injury claims. The new rules abolished the ability for the claimant to recover their legal costs, and also valued awards according to a fixed tariff, which couldn’t include legal fees. It is believed these were introduced to deter people from making minor, low-value whiplash claims as a result of a road traffic accident, but if you have suffered genuine pain and suffering, then please contact Ison Harrison and we will help to pursue your case. We believe everyone has a right to have access to justice.
