If you have been involved in a Road Traffic Accident in which you were not at fault then please contact us for advice and assistance in connection with your claim for compensation against the driver who was at fault in the accident.
- You may be the driver of the vehicle which was not at fault.
- You may be a completely innocent passenger in either the vehicle whose fault the accident was or a passenger in the no fault vehicle.
- You may be just a passenger on a public service vehicle like a train, a taxi, or a bus/coach or just a passenger in your family or friends car.
The point is that if you are an innocent party and you have sustained injuries then you probably have a valid claim.
Compensation for your losses is made up of Special Damages and General Damages.
Special Damages are to compensate you for particular financial losses you have incurred as a result of the accident such as loss of earnings, the costs of hiring a replacement vehicle, the costs of using replacement public transport, the costs of medical treatment etc. It is very important that you keep receipts for any heads of expenditure that you incur as a direct result of your accident.
General Damages are to compensate you for your injuries. We assess these by obtaining detailed Medical Evidence about your injuries, the treatments you have received, and your future prognosis. The final amount of your general damages will depend upon how serious your injuries have been, how long your pain and suffering has lasted, and whether you have achieved a full and complete recovery or whether it is the case that you are likely to be left with some permanent injuries or disability.
If you are unsure about your position or have worries doubts or concerns then please contact us for a free no obligation telephone consultation about your proposed claim.
