What are your rights if you have been involved in a motor or other accident?
Accidents happen. Whether you are involved in a motor collision, have an accident at work, fall off a ladder, or are injured by a defective product, if it is someone else’s fault, you may have legal rights of redress. Motor accidents, no matter how good the road traffic system, also happen frequently and can cause anything from whiplash to loss of limbs.
Usually, the claim you will have will be for compensation, but how compensation is calculated will depend on many factors – such as the full extent of culpability and financial loss. The injury can be either physical or psychological or both.
Not all claims need to reach a court. Indeed, trying to reach a settlement without going to court is often advisable – not least for the avoidance of stress involved. That is where the expert advice of a lawyer who is experienced in such matters is invaluable.
