Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs) are one of the main causes of personal injury in the UK, with over 153,158 casualties reported by the Department for Transport in 2019.
Whilst the impact of a RTA can be as minor as cuts and bruises, many accidents can result in life threatening or even life changing injuries.
If you have been involved in an accident with a moving vehicle and have been hurt as a result, you can make a claim for compensation, whether you were a passenger, cyclist, pedestrian, driver or rider.
However, changes have recently been made to the rules which govern how you can make a personal injury claim for RTAs, so it is important to be aware of these before you commence a claim.
All road traffic claims which occurred ON OR AFTER 31st MAY 2021 AND ARE VALUED AT LESS THAN £5,000.00 must now be commenced through the new RTA Small Claims Pre-Actions protocol which prohibits any recovery for legal fees and therefore limits Harding Evans ability to act for you.
