What Road Traffic Accident Claims Does Legal Expert Handle?
Legal Expert is experienced in making compensation claims for a wide range of different types of road traffic accidents. However, there are a number of specific types of accident that are far more common than others, and these include:
Bath Car and Road Traffic Accident Claims
This is a catch-all heading that includes all of the common types of car accident in Bath that we claim for, that are not numerous enough to warrant their own section. This includes cycling accidents, driving instructor accidents, and accidents involving commercial and farm vehicles, etc.
Passenger Road Traffic Accident Claims
If a passenger in a car, bus, taxi, or another type of vehicle sustains an injury due to being involved in a road traffic accident, then they could be able to make personal injury claims for compensation for the injury.
Bath Taxi Accident Compensation
Every taxi or minicab driver is supposed to have public liability insurance to cover the cost of any personal injury claim that is bought against them by a member of the public that was a passenger in their vehicle. In cases where the driver had no such insurance, a solicitor will be able to help you pursue compensation against the driver and also bring criminal proceedings against them.
Claim For A Coach or Bus Accident In Bath
Although fairly rare, bus, coach or minibus accidents do happen from time to time in Bath solicitors can attest to this. Due to this being a fairly uncommon type of accident, it is vital that you engage the best team of solicitors possible that have experience in processing compensation claims, for injuries caused in a road traffic accident whilst riding on public transport.
Claiming For Road Traffic Accidents Involving Pedestrians
Pedestrians often suffer the most severe of all injuries when they are hit by a high-speed vehicle, and a good solicitor will know to leverage these serious injuries to get the most compensation. Due to their lack of protection, a passenger can sustain server injuries if they are hit by even a slow-moving vehicle. If they are, a solicitor in Bath will be able to process a claim for them.
Claiming For Rear End Shunt Accidents
Rear shunts, and the most common injury they cause, whiplash, are the single most frequent combination of injury and accident that we process a claim for here at Legal Expert. Rear shunts themselves are the most common of all inter-vehicular accidents in the UK each year, with over 1,500 rear shunts being reported each day.
Claiming For Roundabout Accidents
Some drivers, especially learners, new drivers, young drivers and drivers with little experience, can often become confused when the first encounter a large roundabout in heavy traffic. Fortunately, the resulting accidents are generally fairly low-speed, but people can still be injured.
Injuries You Might Suffer After Car And Road Traffic Accidents In Bath
Legal Expert is experienced in processing claims for all types of injuries that could be caused by a road traffic accident. As long as you are making a claim within the personal injury claims time limit of three years, we can help you claim the compensation you are eligible for. From trivial injuries such as minor fractures, through to permanent disabilities and also fatalities. However, there are some types of injuries we see far more often than others, and these include:
Car Crashes Leading To Whiplash
Whiplash is the most common injury we see people claim compensation for after a road traffic accident. Whiplash can be caused by even a relatively low-speed collision. It is caused by the head and neck moving rapidly backwards and forward or side to side.
Car Crashes Leading To Back Pain
Damage to the back can occur in a similar way to whiplash, just on a more severe scale. The upper back, the spine and the neck can all be damaged in this way. Furthermore, the back is at risk of damage through blunt trauma, such as that which victims encounter in a high-speed road traffic accident.
Car Crashes Leading To Serious Injuries
A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you claim for a whole range of different injuries that could be caused by a road traffic accident. From minor injuries such as breaks, through to serious injuries such as irrecoverable brain damage or even a fatality. We can also claim for mental illness such as P.T.S.D. that was caused by the accident.
