Road Traffic Accident Claims
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
Being involved in an accident on the road, whether as a driver, passenger or pedestrian can be a frightening and distressing experience.
Our Specialist Solicitors are able to offer you advice and guidance through a potential road traffic accident claim. In circumstances where the other driver is uninsured or cannot be traced we can assist you in making a claim to the Motor Insurance Bureau. Even if you consider that you were partially to blame for the accident you can still make a claim.
There are strict timetables involved in making a road traffic accident claim and if you think that you are entitled to compensation you will need to call us as soon as possible. The claim for compensation must be settled or Legal Proceedings must have been issued within 3 years of the accident. Legal action will become statute barred if this time limit is exceeded however there are some exceptions to this rule:
- In claims for minors the 3 year period does not start running until the 18th birthday.
- For people who suffer from mental incapacity the time may never start to run.
- Judges have discretion to override the time limits.
