Have you had or been involved in a road traffic accident? Then Sills & Betteridge Solicitors’ Claim team is here for you.
1. Who can claim?
Road Traffic Accident Claims can be made by the following categories of people:-
- Car driver
- Pedal cyclist
2. What do I need to do following a Road Traffic Accident?
- You should obtain the name and address of the drivers of any other vehicles involved in the accident.
- You should also obtain the registration numbers of any other vehicles involved in the accident. You do not need to obtain insurance details. If we have a registration number we can obtain this information for you.
- If the Police attend the accident they will obtain the above information for you.
- If you are unable to obtain the above details because the other driver refuses to give them or because the other driver does not stop you should report the accident to the Police straightaway.
- You should report the accident to your own insurance company.
3. How do I know if my claim will succeed?
For a claim to succeed, it needs to be proved that somebody else was at fault. For example, in a collision between two cars a claim can be made against the driver of the car who caused the collision. In many cases this is obvious but we will in any event take full details from you and advise as to who will be found liable for the accident.
4. What injury can I claim for?
You can claim for any injury however small. The most common injuries arising from a road traffic accident are whiplash injuries which involve soft tissue damage to the neck, shoulders and back. This type of injury is not always immediately apparent. If you are concerned about your injury then you should seek medical attention.
5. How much compensation will I receive?
The compensation for your injury depends upon the severity of the injury itself. There are published guidelines which give a range of compensation for different injuries. When your claim is ready for settlement, we will carry out detailed research and advise you on the appropriate compensation you should receive.
We remain most grateful for all your help and support in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. No one could have done more, and we think the outcome is not only a credit to your skills in this area of law, but also to the care and attention that you have taken on our behalf
Thank you so much again for all your hard work through this, it’s been great to work with you! If ever somebody’s in that situation I know where to send them.
“Thank you very much for everything you’ve done for me. That is a great news for me, I don’t know how to thank you Mr Wilson
I just wanted to send you a message of thanks for your work over these past 4 and a half years. It has certainly been a tough time period in my life, but your support has made things so much easier. Knowing that there were people who understand me, my needs and most importantly believed in me means everything to me, i really can’t thank you enough. The case was certainly not a straight forward one, but you fought my corner at every step. Thank you.
I would also like to thank Alison as well for making me feel relaxed on the day should i have had to go into court. I would have gone in with 100% confidence and that could have made all the difference on the day. In the end it wasn’t necessary and we got the result. For me it was never about the money, it was about the effect it was going to have on my future life and career, so the result is a good one.
I would not hesitate for a second in recommending Sills & Betteridge
Thank you for all your help with this matter and the efficient manner in which my case has been handled. As I am sure you will appreciate, it was quite distressing and stressful to have had a second accident in such a short time frame but the way in which you handled the case and provided me with advice and kept me updated throughout has been very reassuring and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for both you and your company.
