Sadly, the most recent government figures show that road traffic casualties have returned to pre-pandemic levels. In the year to June 2022, over 137,000 casualties were reported. Almost 30,000 of those were categorised as fatal or involving serious injuries.*

If you have suffered injuries in a road traffic collision, you should seek expert advice immediately so that you know whether you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury.

There are many different ways you could be injured on the road, some of the common scenarios are:

  • You may have been the driver of a vehicle involved in a collision with another vehicle
  • You may have been the passenger in a vehicle that has been involved in a collision
  • You may have been a vulnerable road user involved in a collision – this includes pedestrians, cyclists, motor bike riders and passengers, wheelchair users, mobility scooter users or those riding a horse

If the cause of the accident was the poor state of the road itself, a claim can be made to the relevant Highways Authority responsible for the upkeep of the road.

Can I make a claim for an injury in a road traffic accident?

You may think you will not be able to bring a claim if the driver responsible for the collision is untraced or uninsured – but it is still possible to bring a claim against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau in some circumstances. They will step into the shoes of the untraced or uninsured driver and will pay compensation if you are eligible.

Even if you believe you may be partly at fault for the collision – it still might be possible to bring a personal injury claim. Your compensation may be reduced by a percentage to reflect that there were multiple causes of the accident.

Road traffic collisions can be particularly devastating due to the power of the vehicles involved. The injuries suffered in these collisions can be serious and life threatening – even fatal. If you or your family have been involved in a serious or fatal road traffic collision, please get in touch with our team of experts who can assist you.
