Types of Accident

The amount you can claim is dependent on the accident scenario and the role of the participants – see below for a list of common contexts for road-related accidents:

 

  • Car: these range from just a small bump with no visible damage to the vehicle, to accidents where the vehicle involved has to be written-off. Many individuals believe that if there is no visible, cosmetic damage to the car, then the passenger(s) must not be injured; however it must be remembered that bumpers are designed to absorb impact!

 

  • Motorway: motorway accidents can lead to serious injury, greatly amplifying the effects of a road accident and therefore leading to life changing consequences.

 

  • Cycling: As this infographic shows, cycling is a fantastic way to improve your fitness and reduce your carbon footprint. However, there can be dangers on the road with unaware motorists and lack of safety when coming up against motor vehicles.

 

  • Pedestrian: pedestrians can be caught up in a road accident, often through no fault of their own. Lack of protection in these instances often leads to life changing consequences and compensation is necessary to continue to lead your life.

 

  • Taxi: accidents whilst travelling in a private hire vehicle are common and it is essential you gain as many details about the vehicle as possible.

 

  • Public Transport: accidents in trains and buses can effect a large number of people all at once, or it could just be an incident involving you, such as a slip or trip when alighting.
