Why You Need The Right No Win No Fee Car Accident Solicitor In Blackheath For Your Claim
Instead of using an online personal injury claims calculator to get an idea of how much compensation you might receive in a road traffic accident, it is far better to find a good solicitor to deal with your claim, who will give you an estimate. The better your legal firm, the better your chance of winning your claim and receiving the most compensation possible. When you choose a solicitor, make sure they can answer yes to the following questions:
- Have you won a claim like mine in the last year?
- Can you take on my claim under a No Win No Fee deal?
- Can you arrange for me to receive a free local medical examination?
Should You Read Reviews Of Car Accident Solicitors In Blackheath?
Checking online review sites is a great way to make a shortlist of solicitors that might be the right one to represent you in a personal injury claim for a road traffic accident. Use the reviews to build a shortlist, and then follow up by asking friends, family and work colleagues if they have first-hand knowledge of any of the solicitors on the list. Be aware that not all reviews are honest, and this is why you should double check your selection with your peers.
Does It Matter If My Car Accident Solicitor Is Based In Blackheath?
There is no reason at all to use a team of injury solicitors in Blackheath apart from the fact they would be handily close to you. It does not matter where your solicitor is located. It is far more important that you choose a solicitor that has a proven track record of successfully winning personal injury claims for road traffic accident victims, than one that is close by.
What Types Of Road Traffic Accident Claims Can You Handle?
As long as you are making a claim within the personal injury claims time limit of three years, Legal Expert can help you to claim for a full range of possible types of road traffic injuries, and their causes. However, typically, certain types of accidents are more common than others, and these include:
Claim For A General Road Traffic Accident
Under this heading, we cover all of the typical types of road traffic accidents that are not covered in a separate section below. These can be single or multiple vehicle accidents involving both vehicles and pedestrians, accidents involving farm vehicles, HGV, or a police car or ambulance.
Claim For A Passenger Car Accident
When a passenger in a car, taxi or bus, or a pillion passenger on a motorcycle is injured in a road traffic accident that was the fault of a third party, then a reason to make personal injury claims will exist, and Legal Expert can help you with this using our claims service, which we cover in more detail at the end of this guide.
Claim For A Taxi Accident
A Blackheath personal injury lawyer would be able to help you to claim compensation if you were injured whilst riding as a passenger in a taxi or minicab. Drivers of these vehicles are required by law to hold a current insurance policy that provides a way for a passenger injured in their car to make a compensation claim.
Blackheath Bus and Coach Accident Claims
A Blackheath personal injury solicitor would be able to help you to claim compensation if you were injured in a road traffic accident whilst riding on some form of public transport such as a bus, coach or minibus. In this case, the compensation claim will be bought against the company that operates the vehicle as part of its fleet.
Rear End Road Traffic Accidents
Rear end shunts are one of the most common reasons we see people make a claim for road accident compensation. A rear end shunt is a very common cause of whiplash, the single most common injury sustained in a road traffic accident in the UK each year (more on this below).
Accidents At Roundabouts
Many car crash claims that we process on behalf of our clients have their basis in some form of accident that took place at a roundabout. New drivers especially are often confused by large roundabouts, especially when there is excessive traffic, such as during rush hour in Blackheath.
Pedestrian Accidents In Blackheath And Lewisham
All car crash solicitors can also help to make a claim for a pedestrian that has suffered an injury due to being hit by a car, motorcycle, bus, lorry, etc. Quite often, pedestrians suffer very serious injuries, and by using an experienced solicitor, they have a greater chance of winning the most compensation possible.
Injuries Which Can Be Caused By A Car Accident In Blackheath
Here at Legal Expert, we see many injuries that are caused by road traffic accidents and then become the basis of a compensation claim. These can range from trivial to life-changing, and in some cases are fatal. However, some injuries are far more common than others, such as:
Whiplash is the single most common injury that victims of a road traffic accident suffer in the UK. However, it can also be one of the most difficult to prove, simply due to the fact that whiplash claims have been abused in the past. Legal Expert can help you to prove the validity of your whiplash claim and successfully win your claims case by arranging for a free local medical examination.
Back injuries are caused in a similar way to whiplash injuries, with injuries to the upper vertebrae and the neck being the most common of all spinal injuries sustained in a road traffic accident. A bad back injury can have a serious effect upon the quality of life of the victim for a long time, potentially permanently.
Other Serious Injuries From A Road Traffic Accident
Other types of serious injuries that we often see claimed for due to a road traffic accident are head injuries (ranging from concussion through to permanent severe brain damage), limb amputation, massive scarring (typically to the face) and also psychological injuries such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.). All of which we have usefully helped our clients claim for in the past.
