Road Traffic Accident

If you have suffered an injury because of a car accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to a car accident compensation lawsuit. No matter whether you were the driver, the passenger, or a pedestrian during the accident, you have the right to be compensated for all your medical expenses, lost earnings, lost potential future earnings, and other expenses directly related to the accident.

What You Should Do After a Road Traffic Accident ?

A road traffic accident is any accident that happens as a result of traffic on the road, including bikes, motorcycles, cars, vans, and lorries. The first thing you want to do immediately after the accident is to seek medical attention. This will be vital in identifying any injuries that you might initially be unaware of, considering you’ll most likely be in a state of shock following the accident. This will also help support any claims you make later on.
It is also advisable to call the police to the scene of the accident, even if the damage on the cars seem minor. This way, you will get an official record of everything, which is paramount for such cases. When you can, even at a later date, obtain a copy of the official police report and keep it safe. It contains essential details that will help you when filing a claim. In some cases, the report will include the police officer’s opinion of the party responsible for the accident.
It’s also wise to get details such as full names, phone numbers, and addresses of people involved in the accident as well as those who were witnesses to what happened. Make sure you also keep receipts of any costs that you incurred because of the accident. Costs such as ambulance services, transport to medical appointments, care and treatment costs, etc. will help to strengthen your case.

What Compensation Can You Claim for?

The amount of compensation you can claim for depends on many factors. Below are some examples:

Medical Costs
Loss Of Earnings
Travel Expenses ( to and from medical appointments)
Cost Of Care
Cost Of Modifying Your Home

Is There A Time Limit For A Road Traffic Claim?
