Road Traffic Accident
Have you been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault? If you have, Moynihan & Co. Solicitors can help you.
Some people are hesitant to start claims proceedings, worrying that it may be unfair or morally wrong. But compensation secured through the court process is the legal way for an individual or group to make amends for their wrongdoing – and besides, proceedings are not paid out by the individuals involved, but their insurance companies.
Plus, the money won will help pay for medical expenses or rehabilitation costs, the repair of your vehicle, and replacement of lost or damaged property e.g. bike, clothing. It will also cover bills you may have to pay if you’re unable to work for any period of time. Pedestrians are also entitled to make claims for accidents on the roadways.
When Can A Road Traffic Accident Claim Be Made?
If you are unlucky enough to suffer an injury, such as whiplash, as a result of a road traffic accident, you should contact us. These claims are often made either because you are a passenger in a vehicle involved in a collision, such as a taxi cab, bus, or car, or because you suffer a crash as a driver of the vehicle from a person who did not pay attention to a stop sign etc. Road traffic accident claims are often made against the insurance company of the driver responsible. If the driver is uninsured, we can handle this also.
There are no upfront fees, unexpected costs, and no risk of paying the expenses of the defending side. Before any legal proceedings are undertaken, your RTA claim will be considered by our expert personal injury solicitor. You will then be told whether your case can proceed.
What should I be aware of?
There are no hard and fast rules for RTA compensation payouts – the amount of compensation paid out in claims largely depends on the individual circumstances, the extent of the injuries and evidence available. Important evidence may include police reports, CCTV footage, medical evidence, and the testimonies of any witnesses.
Other factors which have an influence on how much compensation you receive depend on factors like whether or not you were wearing a seatbelt to protect yourself from injury, whether you or your driver was speeding, and the severity of your injuries and the resultant lifestyle changes they have forced.
You can rest assured that our road traffic accident solicitors are highly experienced. We know that the aftermath of a car accident can leave you in dire straits. Your car may need urgent repairs or it may even be a write-off, which can make getting to work difficult. Your injuries may leave you incapable of working for a short time, or even permanently in severe cases. The stress of being involved in a serious car accident can have lasting psychological consequences and where lives are lost, the emotional distress will be monumental.
