There is no need to inform a biker that their form of travel is more susceptible to injury than a car, for instance. The chances are that they will have a long history with bikes stemming all the way back to childhood where it was learnt that coming off your bike hurts. Of course, a motorbike is an entirely different animal and can result in some truly horrific injuries. Even despite protective gear, a biker is so much more vulnerable which is why so many accidents result in fatalities. Still, this is not an argument for people giving up on their favoured mode of transport, and for many it is about lifestyle and personality.

Get Justice Following a Car Accident


Posted by admin on March 28, 2012 at 10:28 am. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

Any kind of car accident can be traumatic, but this is even more the case when it’s not your fault. If you’ve been the victim of an accident, no doubt you’ll have found that you’re the one that has to sort things out with the insurers, the mechanics and the car hire people. You’re the one that has to take time off work to deal with everything, and you’re the one that has to deal with the upset all of this causes. Meanwhile, the other party just has to wait for a letter from their insurer, particularly if they haven’t had any damage to their own vehicle. And of course, none of this takes into account any injuries sustained.

Bearing all this in mind, why should you be financially out of pocket? No win no fee solicitors such as ourselves can help you to get compensation if you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault and are suffering injuries as a result of that accident. We have over 15 years’ experience of dealing with road accident claims and will work tirelessly to get you compensation which will go some way to putting things right.

Of course, we understand that no amount of car accident compensation will take the pain away or make the situation less difficult. However, it will give you the sense that there is some justice and that you are not simply being punished for something that wasn’t your fault. It will also ease the financial burden that you have encountered as a result.

 

Personal Injury Solicitors are Best to Represent Your Accident Claim


Posted by admin on March 21, 2012 at 10:26 am. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

If you’ve had a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault and have suffered injuries as a result, your insurers may also have told you that you have the right to personal injury compensation. They may even have told you that they can help to settle the claim themselves. However, we advise you not to act through your insurers, but to use the services of specialist personal injury solicitors such as ourselves instead.

There is no charge for you to use our services for your road traffic accident claim, as we operate on a strictly no win no fee basis. If your case wins, you get to take home 100% of your car accident compensation. However, if your insurers are offering you the same kind of conditions, you may be wondering why you should use solicitors instead. One reason is that we are experts in personal injury law. An accident that wasn’t your fault doesn’t automatically entitle you to compensation, and knowing the law is still a requirement in order to represent the victim in the best way. We can assess the validity of your claim and advise you on the best action going forward. What’s more, the other party’s insurance company can be devious, but we know all their tactics and how best to deal with them.

As an independent third party, we have no other interest beyond getting you the best amount for your claim as possible. Your insurers meanwhile would probably try and keep your claim amount as low as possible because it is in their best interests.

 

Road Accident Claims When You’re at Fault


Posted by admin on February 15, 2012 at 11:05 am. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

Almost all the publicity around car and motorcycle accident claims is geared towards the one who makes the complaint. There are fewer immediate resources for those against whom the claim has been made, whether they admit fault or not. However, we believe that everyone deserves expert legal representation no matter which side they’re on. Not all claims are just, and not all those who are accused of – for example, negligent driving – should have to pay compensation.

There may not be no win no fee solicitors lining up to take your case if you are facing legal proceedings after a traffic accident, you’ll need a specialist solicitor whether you’re at fault or blameless. If a claim is being made against you, having an expert on your side increases your chances of a positive outcome. Sometimes there is even a possibility of making a counter-claim. If you have been unjustly accused and put through considerable stress for no good reason, that ought to be taken into account and amends made.

At Fosters we have a team of experienced and professional lawyers who specialise in road accident claims of all kinds. We are always interested in hearing from those who have suffered as a result of a traffic incident that was not their fault, but may also be able to help those who are facing a claim or admit that the fault was theirs. No matter which party you are, feel free to get in touch and talk to an advisor. We’ll do everything we can to help.

 

Taking All Consequences into Account After a Traffic Accident


Posted by admin on February 1, 2012 at 11:00 am. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

When initiating road traffic accident claims, many people aren’t aware of the full reach of compensation law. They may be seeking to claim medical expenses (which can be considerable) or get some compensation for lost income over a period during which they were not able to work due to their injuries, but sometimes it’s worth looking even further.

A serious traffic accident is always a traumatic experience. Even if nobody is badly hurt, anyone involved may feel frightened, confused, or sickened by what they saw or went through themselves. Children are particularly vulnerable but adults may also be deeply affected. The emotional and psychological consequences of an accident can be just as severe as the physical ones. They might be harder to observe, demonstrate, and quantify, but they can also be more difficult to treat and harder to get over than a broken bone or a case of painful whiplash. Unfortunately, some people continue to suffer the emotional effects of an accident years after their other injuries have healed.

Accident compensation should extend to cover psychological harm as well as physical harm. Such damage can lead to real distress, reduced capacity to earn, and lasting inconvenience, so it’s only fair.

As personal injury lawyers we can help you get the best assessment of all injuries that occurred as the result of a traffic accident, not just those that are easy to see. You deserve to be compensated for the full gamut of harm done to you, and we can help make sure all factors are taken into account.

 

How Evidence Can Help Your Road Traffic Accident Claims


Posted by admin on January 10, 2012 at 3:42 pm. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

Road traffic accident claims are not often simple affairs. The people involved might become doubtful over who is to blame in a certain accident scenario and may be unwilling to seek everything that they are entitled to. However, there are ways you can ascertain whether you are entitled to compensation.

At Fosters Solicitors we will generally recommend that you acquire some evidence about the accident you were involved in. This means getting photographic evidence of the crash, and if applicable, all of the vehicles involved. Our experts will be able to listen to your interpretation of events, look at this evidence, and make a judgement based on the information available. Alternatively, one of the best pieces of evidence is an eyewitness statement. If they can corroborate your version of events, then the likelihood your accident claim will be successful will be greatly increased.

You can also make whiplash compensation. Many people often downgrade the severity of whiplash, thinking that as long as nothing is broken, they won’t be able to make a claim. However, this is not the case. Whiplash can cause a significant amount of suffering and pain which may result in time off work and therefore, lost earnings. It is your right to pursue monetary compensation in this circumstance, and by contact Fosters Solicitors we will be able to give you advice on whether we think you can win your case. We operate a no win, no fee policy, so all of this comes with no threat to you.

You may have noticed that compensation claims are always being advertised on television, on billboards and on the radio. It seems almost impossible not to notice it somewhere at some point. The fact is that you only really realise why when you need to utilise this service for yourself. Then it can dawn on you why there are so many of these adverts.

When it comes to car accident claims, one of the greatest concerns after receiving all of the medical treatment you may require, is how you are going to remain financially stable. If a car accident wasn’t your fault, then calling our solicitors to discuss car accident compensation could be one of your best moves. Car accidents can be debilitating and the recovery times can be excessively long and include a lot of ongoing medical treatment as well as therapy and rehabilitation. This is not to mention your vehicle, the damage done to any passengers or earnings you may lose through being away from work. Car accident compensation can then seem like a vital service that should be well advertised because it is providing an outlet for many people who really don’t know where to turn.

By contacting Fosters Solicitors, you can access the expert line on road traffic accidents. Even if you are not confident you can make a claim, we will listen to your situation and give you our opinion on whether it is a viable course of action for you and whether you are likely to succeed.
