Road Traffic Collisions
Road traffic collisions (RTAs) are unfortunately a common occurrence in Liverpool as they are in most places across the UK.
Over two-hundred people were killed or seriously injured on the roads of Liverpool in 2015, with 40% of those casualties being pedestrians. Cyclists, motorcyclists and car occupants made up the remaining 60%.
For fatalities and serious injuries, your claim may need to be heard by a court if it is a complex case. However, when possible, we try to agree on a settlement without having to go to court. The legal expenses are usually covered by the losing party.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim?
Personal injury compensation ranges anywhere from £100 to over £100,000, depending on a number of factors.
These factors include:
- The type of injury;
- The severity of the injury;
- How your life has been affected by the injury;
- And how many expenses you have had to pay as a direct result of the injury.
Whether or not you are at all at-fault or not also has significance, as do many other factors.
How Long do Claims Take?
Personally injury claims in the UK typically last one to two years, but it depends on the specific circumstances of each claim.
The amount of time it takes to settle a claim can depend on a number of factors, including the complexity of who is at-fault, the severity of the injury, the cooperation between parties and whether or not the claim goes to court.
Claims that are more complex can go to court but straightforward claims with a cooperating third-party are often settled within the year.
We always try to work as efficiently as possible in order to get you the compensation you deserve within a reasonable time frame.
