This means that your local solicitors in Birmingham might not be the best choice. You really should not be thinking about the location is important as it was before the internet was available with emails and e-sign documents. You can use the telephone or email to keep in touch with your legal team no matter where they happen to be. So, it is far better to ignore your local high street solicitors, and instead, try and find one with a proven track record of successfully winning similar cases to your own.
What Kinds Of Vehicle Accident And Injury Claims Does Our Team Handle?
Legal Expert has a long history of processing road and car accident claims in Birmingham. Due to the sheer volume of claims cases for road traffic accidents we handle on behalf of our clients each year, we have seen trends emerge, with regard to the most common types of accidents. We have gone over some of these types of accidents below:
Car Accident Claims In Birmingham
One thing that you need to consider before making your claim for injuries that you sustained in a road traffic accident in Birmingham is that you must be able to prove that you were not at fault. Proving liability is an important part of the claims process and one that Legal Expert can help you with. If liability cannot be proven, in some non-fault claims we could still help you to claim.
Passenger And Child Car Accident Claims
If you are riding as a passenger in a private vehicle, as an adult or a child, then you will be able to claim compensation for any injuries that you incur in a road traffic accident in Birmingham. As a passenger, it is highly unlikely that the accident was your fault, so proving liability should be simple. You will even be able to claim against the driver of your own vehicle if they are proven to be liable.
Taxi Driver And Passenger Accident Claims
Every driver of a taxi or minicab, as well as other private hire services such as a limousine or minibus, must, by law, have a valid public indemnity insurance policy. If you are injured while riding in a taxi, then you will make car accident claims against the insurer.
Birmingham Bus and Coach Injury Claims
If you are travelling on a bus or coach in Birmingham, and it is involved in a road traffic accident, then a personal injury solicitor will be able to make a compensation claim for any injuries that you sustained. In this case, Legal Expert will pursue compensation against the company that owns and operates the bus or coach service.
Birmingham Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
We have included a table lower down this page, that shows the number of fatal accidents by type. You will note that pedestrians are more frequently killed in road traffic accidents in Birmingham than any other type of person apart from car drivers and their passengers. Any solicitor processing a claim for a pedestrian that has been injured during a road traffic accident in Birmingham must be experienced in claiming for severe injuries.
Rear End Car Accidents
Rear end shunt accidents are the most common type of road traffic accident in the UK each year. These low-speed accidents can be quite serious and are a frequent cause for people to claim road accident compensation. Whiplash is a common injury sustained in rear-end shunts, more on this further down the page.
Check the map of accident hotspots in Birmingham that we have included farther down the page. You will see that major road junctions and roundabouts are frequently the locations of road traffic accidents. Often, these will be complicated, multi-vehicle accidents and proving liability will be a complex process that Legal Expert can help with.
What Are The Most Common Injuries In A Car Accident?
There are certain injuries that we process car crash claims for on behalf of our clients more often than others. Below, you will find some additional information covering some of these common injuries, that are sustained by people involved in road traffic accidents in Birmingham.
What Is Whiplash?
Of all injuries we see people claim for, after a road traffic accident, whiplash is the most common by far. It is estimated that the cost of whiplash claims alone adds approximately £90 to every single motor insurance policy in the UK. Making a successful whiplash claim will involve having a medical examination, and Legal Expert can arrange one of these for free in Birmingham for you.
What Can Cause Pain In The Back?
Although whiplash is the most common road traffic accident injury, back injuries are also frequently encountered. The back, especially the upper back and neck is fairly unprotected, even if the vehicle is equipped with an airbag. The upper vertebrae of the spine are also easily damaged, as they are fairly fragile compared to those in the lower back.
What The Most Severe Injuries You Could Have?
Of all injuries that a Birmingham car accident lawyer might process a claim for, serious injuries such as brain damage, loss of a major limb, internal organ damage, and loss of sight are those which generally attract the most compensation. Make sure any solicitor you use is experienced in handling large compensation claims for serious injuries.
