By Mary Hightown. Last Updated 1st November 2022. Have you recently been involved in a car accident or road traffic accident in Runcorn, Cheshire, that was not your fault? If you were injured because of this accident, you could make a road traffic accident compensation claim. Whilst there is not an “average amount of compensation for a road traffic accident” some claims can be worth thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds, depending on the severity of the injuries. If you are awarded compensation, your settlement will compensate you for the pain and suffering you have endured as a result of your accident. It will also compensate you for the costs of any medical treatment you need as a result of your accident.

Have Your Medical Assessment In The Cheshire Area

The first step to making a road traffic accident claim is to have a medical assessment of your injuries. If you make a claim with Legal Expert we will arrange for you to be assessed by a reliable private doctor in the Cheshire area, at a time and place which is most convenient to you. Whilst assessments generally take place at the addresses indicated below, it may be possible to have an assessment at home if necessary.

Conference Centre,
The Heath Business & Technical Centre

During your medical assessment, your doctor will assess your injuries, what treatment you will need going forward, and how your injuries will affect your quality of life. Your doctor will create a medical report based on these findings. The personal injury lawyer will use this to value how much your car crash compensation payout will be worth, as well as using it as evidence of your injuries.

These injuries can cause ongoing pain and be very debilitating, especially serious injuries such as a slipped disc.
