Why It Is Important To Have The Right Solicitor Working On Your Claim
In order to have the best possible chance of winning your case, you need to work with the best possible personal injury solicitor. To be able to do so, there are several things which you should keep in mind which can help you to differentiate between different services. Start by looking how the solicitor or lawyer has performed in the past. Do they have a good record of getting clients a higher level of compensation in similar cases? Next, do they offer no win, no fee services (we will look at what these are later in this article). Finally, look at whether they can organise things such as a medical assessment in your area.
A simpler way of being able to know that you have the best possible person to handle your road traffic accident claim is to use one of our solicitors.

Car crash and accident compensation claims
The causes of car accidents can be extremely varied and can also result in varied injuries. You may have suffered only minor injuries or you could have much more extensive injuries.
Passenger car and vehicle accident compensation
In most instances a passenger is a passive participant in an accident, in that they were not the cause of the accident, nor could do anything about it. As with anyone hurt in a car crash or other form of accident, injury severity can range across a wide spectrum. You can even make a claim for psychological harm suffered in a vehicle accident. You can learn more about claiming if you were hurt as a passenger in our compensation guide.
Taxi injuries and accidents
Whether it is in a taxi or a minicab, the accidents and injuries involved in accidents involving a taxi are very similar to those in private cars. The major difference is in who the claim might be made against. You might bring a claim against their public liabilityinsurance, or against the driver of another vehicle, depending upon who is responsible for the accident.
Claims for bus and coach accidents
People can be hurt more seriously when they are injured in a bus or coach accident compared to car crashes. This is because as a passenger on a bus you might have been standing up at the time of the impact, or even if sitting would not have been held in place by a seat belt. There may also be luggage which is thrown around and which could hurt you. You can read about coach and bus claims here.
As a pedestrian you expect to be safe if you are walking down the street, through a car park, or if you are crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing when safe to do so. However, sometimes pedestrians are hit by vehicles which are speeding or otherwise being negligent. Injuries might be slight, or serious, or even fatal.
Rear shunt accident injuries
If you are involved in crash where you were hit from behind, we could help you to make a road traffic accident claim in Coventry. The most common injuries involved in these claims include traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, and concussions.
Injuries caused by an accident at a roundabout
Whilst roundabouts are one of the safest form of unction, accidents can still happen at them. If other road users are not being observant when they approach or exit a roundabout (or indeed any type of junction) it can be easy for an accident to occur.
Some Of The Most Well Known Injuries Which Result From Road Traffic Accidents
It is a tragic fact that each year hundreds of people are fatally injured in the road network. Road traffic accident claims can claim compensation for a broad range of injuries from the very minor to the very severe or even fatal. Below we look at some of these injury types.
This is a type of injury which affects the soft tissues in the neck, such as ligaments, muscles, and other connective tissues. Whiplash is caused by sudden jerking movements which sprain or stretch the aforementioned tissues. In most cases whiplash will improve quickly with full recovery within a period of weeks to a few months. However in the most serious instances, it could last much longer, limiting your movement and causing pain.
As with whiplash, back pain might not present straight after the accident. Depending on the location and intensity of the pain it could have been caused by damage to the discs, nerves, connective tissues or musculature of the back. View this whiplash back pain injury case study to find out more.
There are numerous other ways in which you could be seriously injured in an accident which you could claim road traffic accident compensation for. Some of these might include severe third or fourth degree burns, brain damage, and severe internal injuries or crush injuries. Many of these could result in disability or even paralysis.
