Reviews Of Salisbury Car Crash And RTA Solicitors
If you can find a reputable review site carrying impartial and accurate reviews of car crash solicitors, this is a great starting place to begin your search for a good legal firm to represent you in your own claim for an injury caused by a road traffic accident in Salisbury.
However, you need to be aware that some reviews may not be accurate, and generally, they are not a suitable basis for a final decision. Take any legal firm you have found on a review site, and cross check it by asking your friends, family or work associates whether they have had any dealings with your chosen solicitor.
Do You Have To Use A Local Solicitor?
There is no reason why you must use a local solicitor to make car crash claims in Salisbury, except that they would be close by. You can keep in touch with your solicitor no matter where they are using the phone, email, etc. A much more important factor than location is how experienced and effective your solicitor is in processing claims cases similar to your own.
Car And Vehicle Crash Claims Our Team Can Conduct For You
Legal Expert processes many compensation claims for road accident compensation on behalf of our clients every year. Due to the volume of these claims we make, we have discerned certain trends. For example, some types of road traffic accidents are far more frequently than others. We have covered many of these types of accidents in their own section below.
General Car Accident Claims
To answer the question, can I get compensation for a car accident? The answer is yes, as long as the accident was not your fault (or you are able to make a non-fault claim). We see accidents such as those involving learners or driving instructors, accidents involving emergency service vehicles, and HGV accidents as some of the most challenging claims cases we process.
Passenger Car Accident Claims
If you are riding as a pillion passenger on a motorcycle in Salisbury, or as a passenger in a private vehicle, or on some form of mass transit service such as a local Salisbury bus service, if you are injured in a road traffic accident, you will be able to claim road accident compensation. Furthermore, the ability for you to prove that you are not liable for the accident should be straightforward as a passenger.
Taxi Accident Claims
Every time you ride in a taxi, minicab or any other type of private hire vehicle, you are depending upon the driver of the vehicle to have a valid public liability insurance policy. The reason for this is that if you were to be injured as a passenger of the vehicle in a road traffic accident, it is the insurance company that provides this insurance cover that Legal Expert would claim against when processing a car accident compensation claim.
Bus or Coach Accident Claims
As a passenger on bus or coach in Salisbury, if you are injured when the bus is involved in a road traffic accident, then you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries. Legal Expert would pursue a damages claim against the company that owns and operates the bus or coach service on your behalf in these cases.
Pedestrian Accident Claims
To answer the question, how much money can you get from a car accident settlement? Much depends on the severity of your injuries. As a pedestrian in Salisbury who has been hit by a moving vehicle in a road traffic accident, it is likely your injuries will be fairly severe. In this case, Legal Expert would rely on the testimony of your doctor, to claim you the most compensation possible.
Rear End Car Accidents
Rear end shunts are the most common of all types of road traffic accidents in Salisbury that Legal Expert processes car accident claims for. These are generally low-speed accidents, yet despite this, are one of the most common causes of whiplash injuries in the UK each year. The average cost of rear shunt repairs according to the ABI, is £2,000.
Roundabouts are one of the most common places that Salisbury accident lawyers have to process road traffic accident claims for. A busy roundabout in heavy traffic can pose a challenge to drivers, especially if they have been distracted in some way.
Injuries Commonly Resulting From Car Accidents And Crashes
As there are types of road traffic accidents that are more frequent than others, there are also a number of different types of injuries that personal injury solicitors in Salisbury process claims for most frequently. A number of these are covered in the sections below.
The single most common of all injuries that are caused by road traffic accidents in the UK every year are whiplash injuries. Even a very low-speed rear shunt can cause a case of whiplash that could take several weeks to clear up. More serious accidents can result in a case of whiplash that could see the victim having to take months off work.
Back injuries are another very common reasons why people need to make a personal injury claim for an injury caused by a road traffic accident. The upper back is unprotected by safety belts and can easily be damaged. This could take the form of muscle sprains, all the way through to damage to the vertebrae of the spine itself.
A personal injury lawyer will see some very serious injuries from time to time. A high-speed road traffic accident involving multiple vehicles can cause severe injuries and fatalities. Injuries such as organ damage, severe fractures, brain damage and limb amputation. All of these would have a life-changing effect on the victim.
