Road Traffic Accidents*
There are a number of different ways in which a person can be injured and bring a claim while using the road.
A person can be injured while driving their own vehicle when involved in an accident that is the result of another person’s negligence, be it car, van, lorry or motorbike.
A person travelling as a passenger in another person’s vehicle can bring a claim for injuries resulting from an accident against the person who is at fault. This can be the driver of the vehicle they are travelling in or another road user.
Pedestrians are more vulnerable and likely to suffer more serious and traumatic injuries as a result of accidents on the road as they are not protected in the same way other road users are. Any pedestrian who is injured as a result of a vehicle colliding with them can bring a claim against the vehicle owner or driver.
