Car drivers and passengers involved in high-speed road traffic accidents may suffer numerous serious injuries. These can be life-changing and, sadly, sometimes may prove fatal. It is not only drivers and passengers who make serious road accident injury claims; many are also made by pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists who, because they are outside of the relative protection provided by a car, are extremely vulnerable when using the roads and pavements.
Pedestrian accident claims may involve children and, even at low speeds, such accidents can be particularly serious.
Cycling accident claims may result from badly maintained roads or contact with road furniture such as tram lines etc, but most commonly occur as a result of collisions with motorised vehicles including vans and lorries, which often have limited vision and blind spots when travelling alongside cyclists on the roads. The injuries sustained in such road traffic accidents are often very serious.
Motorcycling accident claims may occur as a result of collisions at high speed, and due to the relative lack of protection enjoyed by riders, their injuries are often numerous and serious.
