Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accident claims normally involve a car accident or a car crash, like a rear end shunt or an accident at a roundabout, where there has been an injury to the driver and/or an injury to a passenger or a pedestrian

At Watkins & Gunn, we are highly experienced in helping you to negotiate a personal injury claim to seek the justice you deserve and help you to fund your case.

Road traffic accidents commonly cause a whiplash injury to the neck or a back injury and bruising from the seatbelt but many of our clients face more complex and catastrophic injuries from high impact collisions, such as motorway accidents and pile-ups.

This kind of Personal Injury claim can include compensation for injuries to you, to your passengers (often children) as well as drivers. However, they can also include an accident as a pedestrian, on a bus or in a taxi and bicycle or motorcycle accidents.

The claim will normally be made against an insurance company but in cases of uninsured drivers or untraced ‘hit and run’ drivers, we make the claim through the Motor Insurance Bureau.

If you have sustained a personal injury as a result of a road traffic accident then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Contact us today to safeguard your access to justice in time.
