Personal Injury Solicitor Available to Advise Victims of Traffic Accidents

Since the invention of the wheel, the concept of a moving vehicle has always been on the cards. If the first caveman could see the new series of BMWs that cruise along our roads, he could take, (albeit a little) credit for the human race’s progression. However, with such technological advances also comes threats to our personal safety in the form of traffic accidents, which are officially the number one killer of young people in the UK today. If you have been involved in a traffic accident and have suffered an injury because of it, then a personal injury solicitor in Leeds could help you claim some compensation for your damages.

Traffic accidents are an unfortunate element of everyday life, with Leeds’ hospitals admitting more and more victims of crashes and collisions every day. There are many ways in which you can be involved in a traffic accident; you could be the driver, a passenger or even a pedestrian, showing that unfortunately no one is safe from the danger of our roads. There is also a broad spectrum of the damaging effects of traffic accidents, from shunt and bumps to horrific collisions. The most common damage of a traffic accident is whiplash, yet on the other end of the scale lies broken bones, brain damage and death. A Leeds personal injury solicitor will be available to advise you on your claim, be it one concerning a minor collision or a major crash.

As residents of Leeds will be know, the amount of people cycling in or around Leeds centre has increased dramatically, increasing the risk of an accident occurring whilst they are on the roads; because of the ‘city loop road’ system’, Leeds’ roads can be difficult to navigate and thus more accidents can occur. No matter what damage you have suffered, you may be entitled to compensation so it is best to seek legal advice from a good personal injury solicitor. Some victims suffer for longer than is necessary without the correct medical help because they do not feel that they can afford it; medical insurance and compensation can help with this and that is something that a personal injury solicitor can advise you on. However, there are strict time limits to making a claim on traffic accidents; the rule of thumb is that a victim has three years since the accident to make a claim, yet there are some exceptions to this rule, for example if the victim was a child at the time of the accident, then they may have more time. A Leeds personal injury solicitor can explain all of this and more to victims of traffic accidents, which is why it is very important for you to seek the correct legal advice.

We have come a long way since our friend the caveman invented that first wheel, not least in terms of ramifications. One should imagine that had the caveman been involved in a traffic accident, he would be searching for the nearest club to thump over the driver’s head; thankfully, we have replaced the club with a legal court order, so if you are the unfortunate victim of a road accident then reach for the phone and seek legal advice from a Leeds personal injury solicitor.
