Road Traffic Accident Claims
Road traffic accidents are any accidents that happen on the road. You may be able to make a road traffic accident claim if you sustained an injury on the road as a car driver, cyclist, biker, passenger, pedestrian or passer-by.
Our road traffic accident claims specialists can help you work out the details of your claim. We may look at why it occurred – for example, was someone negligent or reckless? Or were weather conditions, a vehicle malfunction or road maintenance to blame? It can also involve assessing what impact the accident has had – and will continue to have – on your life, and what evidence you’ll need to gather.
All this will differ based on the type of accident you’ve been involved in. Read on to find out about the different incidents that might be classed as a road traffic accident:
- General car accidents
- Car accidents involving passengers, including children

- Cycling accidents

We are closely monitoring the development of the law surrounding electric scooters, otherwise known as e-scooters. Collisions involving this modern mode of transport have resulted in serious injuries and even fatalities. We want to ensure that the laws relating to e-scooter safety are robust and that anyone injured by an e-scooter has the ability to access compensation.
