Road Traffic Accident Claims

What is a road traffic accident?

A road traffic accident is an accident caused by a motor vehicle on a road or public place. Road traffic accidents can be caused by the drivers’ lack of driving experience and awareness, loss of concentration, speeding, driving under the influence of drink or drugs, and more.

Road traffic accidents can affect drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians. If you have suffered a bodily injury or damage to your vehicle in a road traffic accident, then you may be able to claim compensation.

Can you claim compensation for a road traffic accident?

As long as you are not solely responsible for the accident itself, then you may be able to claim compensation. For a better understanding of whether you can claim, you should follow the claim page most relevant to your accident:

How long do you have to make a road traffic accident claim?

For an injury claim, you have 3 years from when the road traffic accident occurred to make a claim. For a non-injury claim, such as for vehicle damage, you have 6 years from when the road traffic accident occurred to make a claim.

For a road traffic accident involving a child, you should read our Child Accident Claim for more information as the circumstances are slightly different for children.
