Ways To Find The Right Solicitor For Your Car Crash Claim
We cannot emphasis enough how important it is that you work with the right car crash solicitor on your claim. Your personal injury solicitor is the lead person conducting your claim. They will gather evidence together and will set the amount of compensation that the claim is seeking. They will also have to view sensitive information personal to you, such as medical report and similar information. You should also remember that you can only make your claim once. If you do not get your claim right, you won’t have another chance to make it again. Below we look at what separates the best Wrexham car accident claims solicitors from the rest.
Reviews of road traffic accident personal injury solicitors
Whilst reading reviews of road accident solicitors and in fact different legal services available in your area, doing so is not a substitute for talking directly with a solicitor. Reading reviews will give you an idea of the different types of services provided as well as what level they are provided at. When looking at different firms you might see that there are large differences in the success fee charged. Whilst it might initially seem prudent to go for a firm charging a lower rate, they may also only be able to secure you a smaller car accident claim settlement. The same injury could attract different levels of compensation within a band. Meaning that your solicitors experience plays a big role in how much you could get. Talk to our team to find out more after you have looked at solicitor reviews.
Do I need to use a solicitor local to my area?
One of the biggest reasons why people are often looking for Wrexham car accident claims solicitors is that they believe that they need to use the services of a road accident solicitor who is based in their area. Whilst this misconception is very common, it is not one which you should make or base your decision on. What is far more important than where a solicitor is based is what they can do for you and your claim. Do they offer a no win, no fee service? Do they have experience in the type of claim you are making? Your personal injury solicitor can be based anywhere, they just need to be able to handle your claim.
Different And Common Examples Of Road Traffic Accidents
Whilst it is a sad statistic, there are accidents on the UK’s road network every day and week. Wrexham also has a reasonable number of accidents, as we will see in the statistics presented later in this article. If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident in this area, there are numerous circumstances which could have led to it happening. We will now look at just a few of these.
Car crash injury compensation claims
Car accidents can happen in a very wide range of circumstances. Car accident claims can be made for accidents which were caused by a drivers carelessness, or when an accident is caused by someone else’s speeding. Accidents can also be caused by a driver using a smartphone whilst driving. However your accident happened, if someone else was to blame, you could be awarded compensation.
Passenger injury compensation claims
In car crashes a passenger could be hurt or even killed. In almost every case of a passenger being injured they would not have been responsible for the accident. As such claims can often be clear cut. We can help those injured as a passenger in a public or private vehicle. We can also help the families of those killed in a fatal car crash in Wrexham. In our guide to making a claim as a passenger you can find out more about this type of compensation claim, and how to successfully make it.
Taxi injury compensation claims
Were you hurt in a minicab, taxi, or a vehicle booked through an Application such as Uber? If so, you could make a compensation claim. Such vehicles are known as private hire cars. They must have both private insurance and a public liability insurance policy in place, covering them for all eventualities. If the driver of the taxi was at fault, you could make a claim against them, or the company who they work for. If the driver did not undergo a thorough background check before being hired, you could make a claim against the operating company. You could also bring a claim against the driver of another vehicle, or even the local authority if the road itself led to the accident. Your personal injury lawyer will help you to make a claim.
Coach or bus injury compensation claims
Whilst there are many ways that a coach or bus can have or be involved in an accident, most happen because the vehicle has to stop suddenly in an emergency. If you were injured or hurt in any way physically or psychologically in such an accident, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a claim. We have produced a comprehensive guide to coach and bus emergency braking accidents as they are a frequent form of accident and claim.
Pedestrian injury compensation claims
When you are walking down the street the last thing you expect is to be involved in a road traffic accident. However sadly when crossing the street, even in a safe manor, people are hit. Such accidents can even lead to Wrexham car crash deaths. Pedestrians are more likely to be harmed or killed in a road traffic accident as they are not protected or cushioned from the impact or accident in any way, unlike the occupants of a vehicle who may have seatbelts and airbags to protect them. Pedestrians can be hit if car parks have not been properly maintained, causing a vehicle to crash.
Rear collision injury compensation claims
These are accidents where one vehicle impacts the rear of another. Whilst it might seem like the vehicle which impacted the other was at fault, either the front or rear vehicle could have been at fault. Whether or not you can make a claim for a rear end road traffic accident in Wrexham is dependent on whether or not you were liable for the accident, ie. was it your fault?
Roundabout injury compensation claims
Any junction can be a space for accidents if drivers are not paying attention what other road users (be they drivers or cyclists), or pedestrians are doing. Roundabouts have a plethora of hazards and accidents can happen when entering or exiting the roundabout, or when switching lanes on the roundabout. If you were driving with care and did not cause the accident, you could be able to make a claim with a no win no fee personal injury lawyer.
Common Types Of Vehicle And RTA Injuries
There are numerous ways in which a person could be injured whilst in a car crash. Whilst we will look at some of the injuries which people can suffer, it should also be noted that we can help in instances of claims for a Wrexham car crash death.
In determining how much your settlement will be, your personal injury lawyer will look at how severe your injuries are, and how they will change your life in the future. If you have had to take time off work unpaid, or are no longer able to work, this will be taken into account in your settlement.
Below we have included two of the types of injury we most frequently help people claim for, as well as taking a brief look at more serious injuries.
Neck injuries, including whiplash
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that our team sees from road traffic accidents. It can be caused in a variety of different accident types and can be an injury which leads to long term pain in the neck as well as parts of the back. There are many different ways in which the initial symptoms may present and it can sometimes take several days for you to realise you have whiplash. At the medical assessment carried out by our medical experts we can establish the extent of such injuries.
Spinal and other back injuries
Next to whiplash, injuries to the back can be extremely prevalent in car accidents. We are able to provide you with a solicitor to assist you in navigating the claims process. Remember, if you have suffered a back injury or been left with serious back pain after a car accident, you have to make your claim within the three year personal injury claims time limit.
Other severe forms of injury
There are many other ways in which you could be seriously injured in a road traffic accident. They can have devastating and life changing consequences for you, and the ones you love. Severe forms of injury from a road traffic accident might include:
- Crush injuries to the feet or hands.
- Paralysis, paraplegia, or serious trauma to the spine.
- Severe burns over a large part of the body.
- Coma and other severe head trauma.
