1 Road Traffic Accidents Everything you need to know
2 Families involved in a road traffic accident in this country and abroad can seek legal advice and assistance from EAD Solicitors.
3 Anyone can seek legal advice and assistance on road traffic claims in much the same way they can if they were involved in an accident at work or suffering from an industrial disease. If you are involved in an accident that is not your fault, then it is important that you obtain legal advice as soon as possible. It is important to note that in road traffic accidents an individual may be entitled to compensation even if you are partly to blame for the incident or indeed the other party tries to blame you for the accident. The important thing is that the matter is investigated as soon as possible and you receive appropriate advice quickly.
4 Your Rights In the event that you are involved in a road traffic accident either at home or abroad, whether as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist or cyclist, then you are entitled to claim compensation in respect of: Any pain or suffering resulting from the incident. Past or future losses of income. The cost of car hire. We do operate a scheme to provide for a hire car at no cost to you as any costs are obtained from the third party insurer. The cost of medical treatment including physiotherapy. The cost of care provided by family members or professionals. We will take statements, obtain and consider police reports and witness statements to ensure that you and/ or your families best interests are fully protected at all times and are given the very best advice. Your insurance company may tell you that you have to use their panel of solicitors if you want to make a personal injury claim; however, you are entitled to use a solicitor of your choice. Insurance companies can pass on your claim to another firm of solicitors, who could be based anywhere in the country and contact with that firm could prove to be problematic. Your solicitor can represent you and your family and will maintain close contact with you throughout the claim process and home visits are available. Travel expenses and any other associated expenses. The above rights do still exist even if the motorist who caused the incident is uninsured or if it is a hit and run accident.
5 Time Limits It is important that you or your family act quickly to ensure that the matter is investigated as quickly as possible, to ensure that your best interests are protected. All claims need to be issued within 3 years or if they occur when the injured party is under 18 then the claim is issued by their 21st birthday.
7 Seeking Legal Advice. The first step is to consult us via telephone or (details at the back of this guide). We will then ensure you are given the best legal assistance and professional advice.
