Types of road traffic accident claims
If you are ever hurt in a road accident, you can be eligible for compensation. Moreover, the RTA legal services claim consists of accidents involving:
In addition, a personal injury solicitor will need proof that:
- Someone else’s negligence caused the accident.
- You were the victim of injuries in the accident.
The law and regulations are the same in the case a child gets in a road accident. However, the time limit and the payouts may differ depending on the case. On behalf of a child victim, a parent can also make a claim against another driver, providing proof of the accident.
What RTA compensation amount can I get?
The amount of compensation you can claim depends on the type of injury, its severity, and any lasting effects. Consequently, you can seek special damages in addition to general compensation for your RTA personal injury claims. Main payouts after an injury are as follows:
- loss of earnings.
- Travel expenditure
- Cost of hiring a taxi/cab
- medical costs (treatment and rehabilitation).
A claim must be made within 3 years of the accident. But, this doesn’t mean you should wait nearly three years to get legal assistance. Besides the longer you wait, the tougher it will be to find a solicitor willing to take your case. In contrast, children and those who lack legal ability for the RTA claim process have various time constraints.
How do you determine who is at fault in an accident?
As per the RTA accident management, drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians all have a duty of care to other road users. In this area, a new or inexperienced driver is not excluded. Therefore, a driver who does not fulfil this criterion may be considered negligent and liable for damages. As a result, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
