Claiming compensation for a road traffic accident in Scotland
PedestriansIf you have been knocked down by a vehicle you will have a very good chance of making a claim against the driver - whatever the circumstances. Call us to discuss.
The elderly and the young are at particular risk on today’s busy roads and all it takes is a moment’s lack of attention on the part of a driver to ruin a family’s life for ever.
It is not uncommon for pedestrians to be injured when using a pedestrian crossing and cars and other road vehicles can swerve out of control and mount a pavement.
Whiplash injuries are very painful and can cause long term damage to muscles and nerve fibres. You should be examined by a medical practitioner asap and then call us to discuss the value of your claim.A passenger in a car, van or other vehicle which caused an accident is also entitled to claim against the driver. Claims against the driver are dealt with by the driver’s insurance company. Let us take the stress out of the claim for you.
Bus and coach passengers
Buses and coaches carry such a large number of passengers that there is potential for numerous injuries in the unfortunate event of a collision, emergency stop or other accident.
Bus passenger injuries occur when passengers are thrown around in the bus and common injuries include cuts, bruises, whiplash, fractures and head injuries.
Coach accidents typically involve teachers and schoolchildren on trips and holidaymakers on sightseeing tours.
Taxi passengersMany people now use seatbelts when travelling as a passenger in a taxi, but serious injuries can still result from the taxi being in a collision or if the driver is forced to make an emergency stop.
You can claim compensation if you have suffered a personal injury as a passenger in a taxi, if your injuries were as a result of an accident caused by the driver of the taxi you were in or if another road user was at fault.
‘Hit and run’ victimsIf you were the victim of a ‘hit and run’ driver or if the vehicle was stolen or driven by an uninsured driver you will still be able to make a claim.
Cyclists are among the most vulnerable road users in the UK and as such they have to deal with the actions of inattentive or reckless drivers, poor road surface conditions, or faulty equipment.
When cyclists are involved in accidents, injuries can range from cuts and bruises to broken bones, as well as serious head and spinal trauma. In some cases, bike accidents can result in fatalities.
If you or a member of your family have been injured in a cycling accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation if:
• The accident was caused by the actions of another road user
• The road or cycle lane was in poor condition
• Your injury was due to equipment failure.
Bonnar Accident Law solicitors will investigate your claim free of charge and give you expert legal advice you need.
