What Kinds Of Car Accident Compensation Claims Do You Handle?
Legal Expert can represent Norwich residents in a compensation claim for any kind of injury that you have received in a road traffic accident. However, there are a number of types of accidents that we see far more commonly than others. We have covered some of these frequently encountered types of accidents below.
Car And Motoring Accident Compensation
Before moving on to discuss specific types of accidents, the issue of liability needs to be explained. In order for you to make a successful compensation claim following a car accident Norwich residents need to be able to prove that a third party was liable for the accident. Put simply; you need to be able to prove the accident was not your fault. Additionally, in some special circumstances, you could be able to make a no-fault claim. If you have any doubt over this, call Legal Expert, and we can tell you whether we think you have a valid claim or not.
Passenger Injury Compensation
If you are travelling as a passenger in a vehicle, and it is involved in a car crash in Norwich, then you have the same legal rights as the driver with regard to your eligibility to make a compensation claim for your injuries. Furthermore, the issue of liability is simplified, as it is very rare that a passenger is found to be the cause of a road traffic accident. Legal Expert can even help you to claim against the driver of your own vehicle if they are found to be liable.
Taxi Injury Compensation
Following on from the section above, if you are riding in a taxi, minicab or some other type of private hire vehicle such as a private minibus of limousine service, then if the vehicle is involved in a road accident Norwich residents will be able to claim for their injuries. The driver of the vehicle is expected to maintain a valid public liability insurance policy, and Legal Expert would help you to claim compensation against the insurance firm that provided this policy.
Bus And Coach Accident Compensation
In a similar way that Legal Expert can help you to make a personal injury claim against a taxi drivers insurance company, we can also help you claim against the operators of public transport services. This means that if you are injured in a road traffic accident in Norwich while riding on a bus or coach, then if the driver of the vehicle is liable for the accident, we can help you claim for your injuries.
Pedestrian Injury Compensation
Further down this page, you will find a table showing statistics of fatal road traffic accidents in Norwich. This table shows that after car drivers, pedestrians have the second highest mortality rate in Norwich road traffic accidents. Even a slowly moving vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries to an unprotected pedestrian. Any personal injury lawyer that you engage to help you make a claim for such injuries needs to understand that they will likely need to seek additional damages for loss of future earnings and loss of life-quality, etc. depending on the severity of the injuries.
Rear Shunt Collision Compensation
Of all the types of road traffic accidents that occur in the UK each year, rear shunts or collisions are the most common of all. Although these are generally fairly low-speed accidents, they can still be quite serious. The average costs of repairs to a vehicle that has been hit in a rear shunt accident are around £2,000 according to the Association of British Insurers (ABI). Injuries such as whiplash are commonly caused by rear shunts, and these would be the basis of a personal injury claim on top of the cost of repairs.
Roundabout Accident Or Injury Compensation
If you take a look at the map of Norwich road accident hotspots farther down this page, you will see that major road junctions and roundabouts are common places where accidents take place. One of the most frequent reasons people make car accident claims is for injuries sustained in a roundabout accident. On a large, busy roundabout, inexperienced, distracted or negligent drivers can very easily cause an accident involving multiple vehicles.
Norwich Injury And Accident Claims
There are many types of injuries caused by road traffic accidents that Norwich solicitors process claims for on behalf of their clients. However, some are more common than others, and we have covered some of these types of injuries in the sections below. They range from fairly trivial injuries, through to life-changing or potentially fatal in severity.
The most commonly claimed for injury following a road traffic accident in the UK each year is whiplash. Whiplash is very easily caused, even in low-speed accidents, and it is hard to treat. Even a minor case can last for several weeks. The ABI estimate that whiplash claims add approximately £90 to every motor policy in the UK. This is due to the £2 billion worth of whiplash claims that are made each year.
Another commonly seen injury as a result of a road traffic accident is an upper back or neck injury. Even though airbags are designed to protect the upper back and neck, they can still be damaged quite easily in even a fairly low-speed accident. The vertebrae of the spine in the upper back are smaller and more fragile than those in the lower back and are much more easily damaged.
In this category, we cover all of the types of injuries and medical conditions that will have a measurable effect on the victim’s life for the long-term or permanently. Injuries such as paralysis or amputation of a limb, loss of cognitive function due to brain damage, or damage to internal organs. In these kinds of claims, the personal injury solicitor will need to ensure that a provision in damages is made for these long-term effects.
