The most common road accidents involve one vehicle colliding with the rear and crash caused by drivers not paying due care and attention on the road. Injuries range from the likes of whiplash and muscle strains to broken bones and even loss of limbs.
Medical Negligence Claims

Harrogate Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
What accidents could I claim for?
These could include falls, slips, trips, accidents in the workplace and also any road traffic accidents (RTAs).
What is a good settlement offer?
This is an offer that reaches around 80% of the compensation target that you have in mind.
And what does the settlement consist of?
A typical settlement amount comprises both general damages and special damages.
What are general damages?
General damages focus on the primary pain and suffering that the accident victim endures.
And what about special damages?
These highlight additional expenses such as medication, hospital transportation costs and any home renovations for long-term sufferers.
What is the likelihood of the claim ending up in court?
This is pretty low because they generally try to settle out of court whenever the defendant admits liability.

Theoretically, the victim then has the best chance of achieving maximum compensation for their case.
