Making a Road Traffic Accident Claim in London

What is a Road Accident Claim?

A road traffic accident is defined as a collision involving a vehicle that causes injuries or damage to a person, animal or other property. In order to file for a road accident claim, the collision needs to take place on a road or in a public area. 

There are different types of collisions that count as road traffic accidents:

  • Pedestrian
  • Pedal Cyclists
  • Motorcycle user
  • Car Occupants

Being involved in a road accident can be a difficult situation to address as it can be a very traumatic experience, even more so if you have suffered serious injuries. There are different levels of injuries which influence your claim and we have summarised them for you below.

  • Fatal
  • Seriously injured
  • KSI (killed and seriously injured)
  • Slightly injured

Depending on the severity of the road accident your claim will differ. Remus Robu Solicitors specialise in personal injury claims. We have an experienced legal team ensuring that the appropriate compensation is recovered for injuries sustained. Our legal team are fluent in Romanian and eager to support the Romanian community in London for their personal injury needs.

Are there time limits on making a road traffic accident claim for compensation?

When it comes to road traffic accident claims there are strict period limitations in which compensation claims can be made in the UK. Before any action is taken towards the claim, it is important to understand the main requirements necessary to build a strong case in order to claim the best compensation possible.

For most car accident injury claim cases, the time limits are 3 years from the date of the accident. It is important to note that in order to make a claim, there needs to be evidence that the accident was caused by someone else and that it was not your fault. In general, for a Romanian solicitor to consider working on your case, evidence will be required. There needs to be proof that an accident did take place and that you can demonstrate the injuries you have suffered are as a result of this incident. 

Although car accidents are a very stressful situation, there are some precautions that can be taken in order to help build a strong road traffic accident compensation case. Here is some guidance on what can be done if you are involved in a road traffic car accident:

  • Take photographs of the accident scene
  • Swap details with the other driver involved
  • Visit a medical practice (GP or A&E)
  • Ask any witnesses for details
  • Write down what you remember happening

These can be used as evidence by the solicitor to help build a road traffic accident claim and obtain the compensation that you deserve.
