Road traffic accident solicitors

Road accidents are one of the major causes of personal injury

Figures published by the Department for Transport in June 2013 state that over 1,750 people were killed on Britain’s roads in 2012 and over 23,000 were seriously injured. Road traffic accident claims involve car accident claims, motorbike accident claims, bus and coach accident claims, lorry and HGV accident claims, and passengers injured in a road traffic accident. Victims may also be pedestrians and pedal cyclists, drivers and passengers, insured and uninsured.

We can advise on all aspects of a road accident compensation claim by an injured road user, whether it be minor cuts and bruising, whiplash neck injury or the most severe personal injury or fatal injury.

Our specialist team of road traffic accident claim lawyers are experienced in obtaining the necessary information required to successfully bring a claim for road accident compensation and will give the representation you need at every stage including any criminal proceedings. We do not treat road accidents as everyday occurrences but as the life-changing events that they often are for the victims. 

We deal sympathetically with our client whilst at the same time proactively pursuing compensation for their loss. We appreciate that the needs of each individual are different and equally important. Assessment of injuries and financial losses and needs is carried out throughout the handling of the claim. We can obtain interim payments to help with any pressing financial needs. 

Amputations following a road traffic accident

Injuries to limbs and other body parts are common in road traffic accidents, similar injuries can occur whether you were the driver, passenger or a pedestrian. Medical professionals will always attempt to save a limb after a serious accident however this may not always be possible or successful. If limbs, fingers or toes become crushed, severed or damaged beyond repair then the resulting loss of limb is life changing.

We understand how losing a limb can have a serious impact - returning to work after a loss of a limb is difficult and the potential loss of earnings can also have a huge impact. Our amputation claims experts at Boyes Turner work for our clients to recover the maximum compensation possible. Giving the amputee the best chance at rehabilitation and returning to a quality of life that they had before their road traffic accident.

Making an amputation compensation claim can help with immediate needs like rehabilitation, physiotherapy and occupational therapy as well as future needs like prosthetics and home modifications if necessary.

The effects of a severe brain injury can be wide-ranging but usually include balance problems, headaches, emotional and behavioural effects or memory problems.
