Why Having the Right RTA Solicitor Is Important to Your Claim

In order to have the best possible chance of winning personal injury claims, you need to find the right solicitor. The more experienced and skilled your legal team is in processing such claims, then the better chance you have that your claim will be successful. It could also have a positive effect on the level of damages you are awarded. Any solicitor you choose to process a claim for injuries you have suffered in a Middlesbrough road traffic accident should:

  • Be able to represent you under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
  • Be able to organise a free local medical examination.
  • Be able to prove they have won similar cases in the last 12 months.

Are Reviews of Solicitors Services Useful?

Before you engage a solicitor to process a personal injury claim for injuries you suffered during a Middlesbrough road traffic accident, you can check online review sites to help with finding the best legal firm for the task. These sites can be very useful. However, remember also that they may be inaccurate to some extent, so always be sure to double check the facts. If you can find a legal firm with good reviews, and one of your friends or family has dealt with them previously, ask them how the experience was.

Can My Legal Team Be Based Outside of Middlesbrough?

The answer to the question is yes. The location of your personal injury solicitor is not in the least bit important, as no matter where they are you can keep in touch with them simply and cheaply using the phone or email. It is much more important that you choose the best solicitor, rather than the closest one. Engaging the best legal firm you can find is going to give you a much better chance of winning your compensation claim for a Middlesbrough road accident injury.

RTA Compensation Claims We Can Help With

Legal Expert processes so many claims for injuries caused in a traffic accident each year that we notice trends related to the most frequently seen types of accidents we handle claims for. Some types of accidents we see time and time again, and we discuss these in a little more detail in the sections below.

Middlesbrough Car Crash Compensation

Before we move on to cover the most common types of road traffic accidents in Middlesbrough, we need to discuss the issue of liability. The pivotal point of any claims case is proving liability for the accident. In other words, proving the accident was not your fault. This is something Legal Expert can help you with if you are in any doubt whether you may be even partially liable for the accident. In some cases, you could be eligible to make a non-fault claim. If so, we will let you know.

Middlesbrough Passenger Accident Compensation

As a passenger in a vehicle, no matter if it is a privately-owned vehicle or a local Middlesbrough public transport service, you have exactly the same rights as a driver, and a personal injury lawyer will be able to process a compensation claim for you. As a passenger, the issue of liability is already settled, as you were not in control of the vehicle. You can make a claim against the person who caused the accident, even if it was the person driving the vehicle you were a passenger in.

Middlesbrough Taxi Accident Compensation

If you are riding in a minicab, taxi or some other form of private hire vehicle and it is involved in a road traffic accident in Middlesbrough, then you could be able to claim for any injuries you sustained. Your taxi driver is required by law to have a public indemnity insurance policy to protect members of the public who are riding in their car, and it is this insurance company that Legal Expert would seek compensation from on your behalf.

Middlesbrough Bus & Coach Accident Compensation

As a passenger on public transport, such as a local bus in Middlesbrough, or if you were making a journey on a national coach service, then the owner and operator of the vehicle would be liable to pay compensation if you are injured in a road traffic accident, due the actions of the driver. Legal Expert can help you with this; we have the experience needed to take on large public transport companies and successfully win compensation for you.

Middlesbrough Pedestrian Accident Compensation

As a pedestrian, if you were to be hit by a car, motorcycle, or bus while walking down the street in Middlesbrough, it is likely that you would sustain some pretty serious injuries. All pedestrians can claim personal injury compensation if they are involved in a road traffic accident. The solicitor you use to make your claim will need to understand the process of claiming for serious injuries, as well as for the effect these types of injuries could have on your life in the future.

Middlesbrough Rear End Accident Compensation

Of all accidents involving motor vehicles in the UK each year, rear shunts are the single most frequent reason why people claim car accident compensation. Just because rear shunts are generally low-speed accidents does not mean they cannot be serious. Whiplash is the most common injury caused by rear shunts, the most prolific of all injuries claimed for in the UK every year. (more on that below).

Middlesbrough Roundabout Accident Compensation

Take a look at the map of Middlesbrough lower down this page and take note of how many of the road traffic accidents seem to occur at major road junctions and on roundabouts. Roundabout accidents are a common reason why people make car crash claims. A busy roundabout is a potential hazard to inexperienced or young drivers, or to drivers who are distracted.

Injuries Commonly Caused By Road Traffic Accidents

The previous sections of this guide covered the most common types of Middlesbrough road traffic accident that people claim road accident compensation. The sections below are similar, except that they cover the more common types of injuries that Legal Expert processes compensation claims for on behalf of our clients.

Whiplash And Other Neck Or Upper Back Injuries

Nationally, the cost in compensation pay-outs solely for whiplash in the UK each year is more than £2 billion. This makes whiplash injuries by far the most frequent injuries that people who are involved in a road traffic accident in Middlesbrough sustain. Whiplash is a deceptive injury, very easily caused, yet even a fairly trivial case can take several weeks to heal properly. It is also very difficult to pinpoint the physical cause of whiplash injuries, and this has led to this type of injury being exploited fraudulently in the past. Legal Expert recommends that when we process a whiplash claim on your behalf, you back up your case by letting us arrange a free local medical examination for you.

Injuries And Pain In The Lower Back

As we explained above, whiplash is the most common injury we see people sustain in road traffic accidents. However, damage to the back and neck are almost as common as whiplash. Lower back injuries can be extremely serious, taking many months to heal, with more serious cases resulting in some form of paralysis. Damage to the upper back is often less serious, but the upper back is much easier to damage, the spine is thinner, and the only protection to the upper back, neck and head in a road traffic accident is the airbag.

Internal Or Other Serious Types Of Injury

Of all claims we process on behalf of our clients, those we handle for serious injuries generally attract the highest compensation settlements. These are serious injuries that will have a long-term or permanent effect upon the victim’s life. Brain damage, internal organ damage, limb amputation, etc. are all examples of serious injuries that a person can sustain in a Middlesbrough road traffic accident.
