Road traffic accidents

Solicitors in London
With 95% of all road accidents involving human error there are a number of scenarios whereby you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation.

If you have been involved in an accident on the road you may be able to make a road accident claim.

What you should do at the accident site

As with all accidents fault will need to be established against the other party.

Whether or not the other party is insured and because the Motor Insurers’ Bureau(MIB) have very strict time limits, it is very important that the following steps are taken after any accident:

  • Record the details of the other party at the scene, including name, address, telephone, insurance details and vehicle registration number.
  • Report the matter to the police immediately. If for any reason this is not possible, report the accident in person to a police station as soon as you can (and get a police reference number) .
  • Take details of any other party and any witnesses.
  • Contact your own insurers, if relevant

Recent successful case

Our client was involved in an extremely tragic road traffic accident in which his wife died. He sustained arm fractures, a radial nerve injury, multiple rib fractures as well as a back injury. He also suffered a head injury and a psychiatric reaction.

Our client was a front seat passenger travelling with others on the motorway when their car broke down and was hit by an HGV lorry. Tragically the others in the car were killed as a result of the collision. The lorry driver was prosecuted for causing death by dangerous driving but subsequently acquitted by a jury, following a lengthy criminal trial. Despite the outcome of the criminal case, Osbornes Law pursued a civil claim, on behalf of our client, against the insurers of the lorry driver. Reports from various medical experts were submitted including neurologist, nerve specialist and psychiatrist.

Damages awarded: £350,000

Osbornes Law obtained a grant of administration for the estate of our client’s wife and then pursued claims for the Estate and for our client for the death of his wife, which included the costs of repatriating her body back to Romania, the costs of the funeral and a bereavement award and financial and services dependency claims. The second claim settled for £160,000.00.
