Road Traffic Accident Claims
Have you been injured in a road traffic accident? At Garratts, we understand the severe impact this can have on your physical and mental wellbeing. Our team of road traffic accident solicitors will work hard to help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Can I claim if I was injured in a road traffic accident?
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident which was not your fault, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
Speak to one of our RTA solicitors before settling with the responsible motor insurer. You will have the opportunity to have your case reviewed by an experienced legal expert who will advise you on the appropriate level of compensation you may be eligible to receive. Some motor insurers will be inclined to make you an early settlement offer which may not factor in some of the long-term consequences of an accident.
Any road traffic accidents which are a result of the negligence of another party may be eligible for a compensation claim to cover:
- loss of earnings
- medical costs
- and ongoing treatments to help resolve any emotional trauma you have experienced.
How much compensation can I claim for a road traffic accident?
The level of compensation for your car, motorcycle, cycling or pedestrian accident will vary on a case-by-case basis. Our team of solicitors will be able to further advise you based on your claim in your initial ‘No Win, No Fee’ consultation.
What is the process for making a road traffic accident claim?
You can start by contacting us for a free initial consultation if you have suffered from injuries, loss or damage as the result of a road traffic accident.
Following an initial review of your case, we will advise as to whether we think you will be able to claim compensation. After this, we will accrue all evidence required to support your claim and inform the insurers of the negligent party. To ensure the best possible outcome for your RTA claim, we will organise an independent medical examination report for you before presenting your case to the motor insurers and entering settlement negotiations.
Rest assured that our team of road traffic accident solicitors will undertake all negotiations and represent you in court if required.
No Win, No Fee Road Traffic Accident Claims
At Garratts, we operate on a ‘No win, No Fee’ basis. Therefore, you will not have to pay anything if your claim isn’t successful. If you are awarded compensation, your legal fees will be paid by the insurance company of the negligent party who caused the accident. You will also pay a success fee to us, but this is capped at a maximum of 25% of the compensation awarded.
