Road Traffic Accidents

We understand there are plenty of dangers on the road that cause accidents – and not all of them happen to the person behind the wheel. Collisions and crashes can be deeply traumatic, and can cause innocent victims to be injured, sometimes severely. If this has happened to you, you’ve every right to claim compensation. Our legally trained advisors are here to help you every step of the way.

Road traffic accidents can be very traumatic; whether you’re the driver, a passenger or even a pedestrian. Here at National Accident Helpline, we’ve dealt with many thousands of road traffic accident claims over the years. We are here to advise you throughout the claims process and make sure your journey to compensation goes as smoothly as possible.

Types of road traffic accident claims

National Accident Helpline will help you get compensation if you have been involved in any of the following scenarios, which was through no fault of your own:

  • You were injured while driving a vehicle, including cars, motorbikes, trucks, vans, and even buses.
  • You were the passenger in a vehicle and suffered an injury caused by the driver, or another vehicle colliding with yours.
  • You were on a bicycle and got caught in a collision between yourself and another vehicle or cyclist, or fell due to the negligence of someone else on the road.
  • You were a pedestrian injured due to an accident between other vehicles, or after being directly hit.
  • You were a member of the public involved in an accident on public transport.

Of course, we know there are many different varieties and combinations of these scenarios, which is why we listen to each case individually. We pride ourselves on weighing up the facts and connecting you to the best possible solicitor for your case’

Common road traffic accident injury types

There are countless ways you can injure yourself on the road, or in a car accident. At National Accident Helpline, we try to understand the full extent of your injuries, and the impact they’ve had on your life. However, there are some road traffic accident injuries we see every day, which are more common than others. Some examples include:

  • Whiplash Injuries – occur when the head or neck has been jolted very suddenly, causing a sprain of the neck muscles.
  • Fractures, sprains, or broken bones
  • Hearing, sight or other sensory loss or impairment
  • Organ trauma
  • Head, brain or spinal injuries

We deal with everything from short-term injuries to the most traumatic cases, including fatalities, where friends and family can claim on behalf of the loved one they have lost.

The best way to find out if you’re eligible to claim is to call us on , or fill out our online form and we’ll call you back at a time that is convenient to you.

What is a whiplash injury?

Whiplash occurs when your head is painfully jolted, causing your soft tissue, ligaments or tendons to stretch and subsequently sprain. Despite the body being restrained by a seat-belt during a car accident, the head is free to move about, and can be jolted in several directions, allowing for some serious damage to be done.

In most cases whiplash is fully treatable with anti-inflammatory medication and rest, but the aches, pains, headaches and side-effects can make certain types of work uncomfortable or even impossible. This can lead to a loss of income. Any financial losses you’ve suffered will be factored into the value of your claim.

If you think you’ve suffered whiplash during a car or road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault – call us on or fill out the form and we’ll kick start your claim today.

What about uninsured drivers?

Unfortunately, there are some people out there who don’t have insurance on their car, motorbike or other road vehicle, despite it being a legal obligation. Usually your compensation would come from the insurance company used by the person who caused the accident, but in certain cases it can be taken from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) – a fund that’s paid into by all UK insurance companies, to ensure there’s cover for people who are involved in accidents caused by uninsured or untraceable drivers.
