Why Should I Claim Compensation For A Road Traffic Accident?
Sadly, road traffic accidents can cause severe injuries, such as fractured bones, whiplash, skull injuries, brain injury, paralysis and even death. Their effect on victim’s lives can range from temporary discomfort to being incapable of earning and to families having to grieve the death of a loved one.
Although, road traffic accident compensation can never make up for the discomfort and sorrow involved in a serious road traffic accident, it can definitely help to restore victims and their family member’s lives. An award of compensation can help you to focus solely on your medical treatment and recovery process, without having to worry about lost earnings. Being compensated can also spread certain awareness and avoid the same incident happening to someone else in the future. In the case of a casualty, compensation can help to provide for any dependants.

The compensation, which you can expect to receive following a road traffic accident, will depend on a number of factors, mostly related to your medical injury, its circumstances, and the support and rehabilitation you might need as a result.
The amount of compensation that you might receive broadly depends on the aforementioned factors, which our solicitors take into account, including:
- The type of injury you’ve suffered
- The medically proven discomfort and suffering
- Any loss of earnings caused
- Any mental and emotional effects
- Any necessity for mobility aids
- Any medical treatment that you’ve received
Subsequently, the amount of compensation received in all road traffic accident claims is also reliant on the relevant proof and evidence that are available to the solicitor such as witnesses who could provide testimonies of the accident. This will help in making the case strong and secure the best compensation for you.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claim?
In the UK, the standard time limit within which a road traffic accident claim can be filed is 3 years. If legal proceedings are not started within 3 years, the case is considered time barred and you are no longer entitled to claim for compensation. The 3-year deadline starts either from the date that the accident happened or from the date when it was established that your injury was directly/indirectly linked to the original accident, which is also known as ‘date of knowledge’. In fatal cases, the family of the deceased has 3 years to make a claim, starting from the date either your loved one died, or the date you received the post-mortem reports, connecting the death to the accident.
The golden advice is always to start thinking about making road traffic accident compensation claims as soon as after the actual incident takes place. Events will still be fresh in your mind, evidences are easier to collect and a stronger compensation case more likely to be built.
Therefore, the sooner you speak to a team of personal injury solicitors, the better. If you have questions or concerns about the time limits, please call us for a free and confidential consultation on Freephone 01772 25 22 22.
