What is a Road Traffic Accident?

A road traffic accident is typically any collision or road incident that can have detrimental damage to any road user. Any road user can claim after a road traffic accident; these include: 

  • Drivers of vehicles such as cars, vans, lorries, and buses. 
  • Motorcycle Riders.
  • Cyclists. 
  • Pedestrians.

Suffering from a road traffic accident can cause severe damage to any road user; this is why it is crucial to start a claim if you have been in an accident that was not your fault. Our solicitors work on a no-win-no-fee basis; this guarantees that you are commencing your claim risk-free and without financial insecurities. 

How much compensation will I receive?

We understand that experiencing damage or loss from a road traffic accident can be a traumatic and stressful experience for anyone, therefore it is important to us that our clients receive the compensation that they deserve. 

However, due to the vast spectrum of damages and losses road users can experience, it is hard to tell exactly how much compensation you may get without firstly intricately analysing your claim. 

The amount of compensation you may receive depends on what kind of injuries you have faced, like whiplash, broken bones, head, or back injuries. It also depends on factors such as; how long you spent off work, costs of procedures, or how much you had to spend on fixing the damages from the accident. 

We understand that the process of starting a claim is not easy; this is why our solicitors will use their extensive knowledge to ensure to assemble all the evidence so you can get the highest possible compensation for your case. 

The amount of compensation you may get dramatically depends on the severity of the road traffic accident. To find out how much compensation you may get, contact our experts now. 

Who can claim compensation for road traffic accidents?

There are many different types of road accidents, involving any types of road users, however, the most common ones involve:

  • Car Accidents.
  • Pedestrian Accidents.
  • Motorcycle Accidents.
  • Cycling Accidents.
  • Public Transport Accidents.
  • Taxi Accidents.

If you were involved in a road traffic accident, as any road user, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors here at Belmont solicitors. We will ensure that your claim runs smoothly, providing you with top customer service from the minute you make your first call. 

How long after a road accident can I claim?

In Scotland, you can claim for up to three years after the road traffic accident has occurred. If you are under the age of 16, this time limit does not apply; your parent or guardian can claim at any point until the age of 16 in Scotland. After the child turns 16, you can claim up to three years from your 16th birthday. 

There as some exceptions during which claimants have no time limit to making their claim, including where they do not have the mental capacity, for example, due to health or mental health issues.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
