Road Traffic Accident

Road Traffic Accidents (or “car accidents”) can be traumatic experiences, even if your injury is not serious.


If you make a car accident claim, the insurers of the person responsible for the accident must decide whether to accept the claim and what amount of compensation to offer you for your particular injury.

Whether you were:

  • The driver of a vehicle
  • The passenger of a vehicle
  • The victim of a 'hit and run' accident

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you will be entitled to make a compensation claim.

Gregory Abrams Davidson, can manage your compensation claim from start to finish.

We can arrange same day car-hire and repairs in appropriate cases and our computerised Case Management System will ensure that your case is concluded in a hassle-free manner and as quickly as possible.

The most common claims for road traffic accident compensation are whiplash claims, however, claims can be made for a variety of road accident injuries, including; broken limbs, bruises and psychological injuries.

Many car accidents have contributing road or environmental factors, but in the majority of road traffic accident compensation cases are due to human error, mostly due to of a lack of judgement and sometimes, intoxication.

Our specialist road traffic injury claims solicitors will try to ensure that you receive the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to and you should feel comfortable knowing that the right decisions are being made about your claim.

Immediately following a road traffic accident, the law requires that you stop at the scene and exchange insurance details. If necessary, you should call the police.

If the offending party doesn’t stop, the accident could be classed as a “hit and run”, which is itself a criminal offence.

To help you make a claim, Gregory Abrams Davidson recommends that you are prepared for the unexpected. You should ALWAYS:

  1. Keep a pen and notepad in your car. (This will help you keep a note of all details of the other person(s) involved, as well as the time, weather conditions, injuries sustained by all parties, names and numbers of any emergency servicemen and any other important information.)
  2. Keep a disposable camera (or a camera phone) in your car. (This will enable you to take pictures of the scene of the accident from all different angles and will give our solicitors an idea of how the accident occurred and it will benefit your compensation claim.)

By law, all drivers should be insured against road traffic accident / car accident claims. Insurers charge insurance premiums so that they can pay out accident compensation.

You should never feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a road traffic accident claim if you have suffered an injury from a road traffic accident that was not your fault.

Road Traffic Accident compensation will not make you better, but it may help to cover your losses and ease your suffering. This is particularly important if you have had to take time off work, causing you to lose earnings.
