Can I make a Road Traffic Accident claim?
Anyone who has been in a road traffic accident with a vehicle can claim for personal injury compensation, if the accident was not their fault, and provided that they have been injured.
MG Legal's No Win No Fee road traffic accident solicitors, have won personal injury compensation for thousands of injured road users, including those classed as vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, and even those on horseback.
The law states that you must have motor insurance to drive your vehicle on UK roads. Third party insurance is the legal minimum. This means any driver is covered if they have an accident causing damage or injury to any other person, vehicle, animal or property.
MG Legal's traffic accident claim solicitors have access to the Motor Insurers' Database, known as the MID. The MID is the central record of all insured vehicles in the UK. It is managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau, and is used by the Police and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to enforce motor insurance laws.
Changes to small injury claims and whiplash claims for road traffic accidents 2021:
In May of 2021, the rules and regulations regarding road traffic accident claims changed, in a proposed attempt by the government to reduce the number of fraudulent and exaggerated road traffic accident claims that are made by drivers and passengers.
So, what do these changes mean? Our road traffic accident solicitors have outlined below:
The lower limit for making a road traffic accident claim has risen from £1000 to £5000 (in general damages)
The compensation available for whiplash and soft tissue injuries is now fixed, and lower than previously
Small claims under the value of £5000 can now be made by the injured party through an online claims portal
To learn more about the new changes for road traffic accident claims, and who they will affect, see this here.
How long do I have to make a road traffic accident claim?
The general rule for personal injury claims, as is laid out in the 1980 Limitation Act, is that people have 3 years from the date of which an accident occurs to claim for financial compensation for their injuries.
However, it is always best to get in touch with a specialist solicitor as soon as possible, as this is when the accident and injuries are still fresh in your memory, and any available evidence is still likely to be accessible and usable to support your road traffic accident claim.
There are, however, some exceptions to this three-year time limit to make a road traffic accident claim. These are:
Making a claim for a child- you can make a road traffic accident claim for your injured child at any point until they turn 18. At this point they have 3 years to do so on their own behalf
Lack of mental capacity- if a loved one lacks the mental capacity to make a road traffic accident claim on their own behalf, there is no time limit for how long you have to make a claim on their behalf

What can I claim for in a road traffic accident claim?
The list of things you can claim for, is a long as the list of body parts you can injure. It is often the case that the type of injury you sustain, or the longevity of your personal injury, depends on the severity of the road traffic accident you are in, and will determin whether or not you are eligible to make a road traffic accident claim.
You can claim for bodily injury of any kind in a road traffic accident claim, from your toes to your head, provided the general damages available for your injuries meet the new 'Whiplash Reforms' threshold of £5000.
On top of injury compensation, you can also recover costs for vehicle repairs, or the replacement value of your vehicle, and lost earnings, damage to clothing and other personal possessions. This is called special damages.
If you have been seriosly injured as a result of a road traffic accident, then you may be also able to claim for care costs, adjustments to your home, medical expenses, lost earnings, and future lost earning capacity.
Many of the clients that our personal injury solicitors work for, on a No Win No Fee basis, have suffered serious debilitating injuries, sometimes in the legal industry known as catastrophic injuries, affecting the brain, or spine, often with amputation of body parts required, with, severe psychiatric injury, and often a reduced life expectancy, and we work with them to ensure thst they recieve the best care possible, without having to fork out the costs themselves.
Will I have to go to court for my road traffic accident claim?
When our injury solicitors work on road traffic accident claim for our injured clients, we always aim to obtain an admission of liability from the defendant involved who was to blame for your injuries, and we achieve this in the vast majority of our road traffic accident claims.
However, in those instances where the defendant will not admit liability, then we might have to begin court proceedings for your claim, where we will fight tooth and nail in court to win your case and achieve your financial compensation.
