Trust Fosters With Your Car Accident Claims

Posted by admin on June 20, 2012 at 3:29 pm. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

Car accident claims are some of the most frequent claims that we deal with. This is largely because in a single quarter alone there can be hundreds of thousands of accidents on the roads which result in a slight to serious or fatal injury. A lot of people will therefore be looking to make car accident compensation claims because of the negligence of another party. Aside from other road users, the other party may also be pedestrians or even those bodies tasked with the upkeep of the road. Potholes, damage to important signs and lights can all result in a car accident, and if this is the case, then you can and should be able to initiate a car accident claim.

It makes for grizzly reading but according to the Department For Transport the number of people killed as of the year ending September 2011 stood at an estimate of 1,900 people. All of these incidents require investigation and many of them may find that some other party was responsible for the accident, be it another driver or otherwise. This can mean that a compensation claim can be lodged on behalf of the deceased. If you want to find out whether you are able to make this claim on their behalf it is advisable to talk to our personal injury solicitors as soon as you feel capable. We will be able to give you all of the information that you need to file a claim for compensation. It is important to remember that this can have serious financial implications for families and relatives, particularly if they were in some way dependent on the deceased. Payouts in this type of scenario can be significant, so it is always important to talk to an expert.

As well as fatalities there were an over all of 204, 350 casualties that were reported. These ranged from slight to serious and also included the fatalities for the same period. Many people don’t realise that claims for compensation can be made for seemingly minor injuries such as whiplash because the it can result in loss of earnings and even spinal damage. It is always important to report injuries sustained in a car crash and if they were caused by somebody else’s negligence then you should talk to one of our experienced solicitors.

Personal Injury Solicitors and Social Change

There is little doubt that personal injury solicitors have a poor reputation, as a whole. In fact, you could say the same for lawyers, dentists, accountants, politicians, and many other professions, but what many people don’t realise is that compensation law (and the lawyers that work in the field as specialists) has been a significant driver of social change.

Over the last century or so, the power of the personal injury compensation claim has helped bring about reforms in the healthcare sector, in advertising, and last but not least, in workplace health and safety. It could be argued that most of the positive changes would have occurred over time anyway but there is little doubt that compensation lawyers were well ahead of legislators at many points in recent history.

If those who were exposed to asbestos at work and then went on to develop serious illnesses didn’t stand up and seek compensation, backed by expert lawyers, then perhaps the laws governing the safe treatment of this lethal material wouldn’t be so stringent and more people would fall ill in the future. If people who suffered lung diseases after tobacco companies ignored research into the potentially harmful effects of smoking hadn’t chosen to take their story to the courts, perhaps the UK wouldn’t be doing so much work on tobacco-related health.

Such court cases can go a long way towards improving public understanding of an issue and even prompt politicians into action. While car accident claims may be a compensation solicitor’s bread and butter, there is a lot more to this branch of the law. Sometimes we also get to help to change the world on a broader scale.
