Road traffic accident injury claims

How DAS Law can help you

If you have suffered a road traffic injury that wasn’t your fault, our experienced team of personal injury lawyers and network of medical experts can provide you with practical legal advice and representation to get you the rehabilitation, care and financial support you deserve.

These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:

  • Obtaining compensation for injuries suffered in a road traffic accident.
  • Putting you in contact with leading rehabilitation organisations and support groups that can provide you with practical assistance and morale support in the aftermath of a serious injury.
  • We can obtain interim payments to limit the financial impact of your injury.
  • Important things to consider

    Here are some things you should be aware of regarding your road traffic accident claim:

    • Our lawyers have dealt with many types of injuries resulting from road traffic accident claims including whiplash and soft tissue injuries, broken bones and fractures, head, brain and spinal injuries, loss of limbs and fatal injuries.
    • In most cases we can secure interim payments to help alleviate financial hardship and stress.
    • You do not need to visit our offices. We can arrange meetings at your convenience at your home or in hospital, or over the phone at a time that suits you.
    • If you are off work as a result of your injury, you may be able to claim a compensation for loss of income, any medical costs incurred and for any ongoing care and rehabilitation you need.
    • In most cases, personal injury claims must be made within three years of the date of the accident. There are exceptions to this general rule which we can advise you about.

    How much will it cost?

    If you would like DAS Law to help you with your road traffic accident claim, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:

    Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

    If you have a motor or home insurance policy which includes LEI cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

    Conditional Fee Agreement (No win no fee)

    If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with fatal injury claims through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) – commonly known as ‘No Win, No Fee’. We also assist our clients in obtaining After The Event (ATE) insurance at no upfront cost.

    If you have legal expenses insurance, your legal costs may be covered by your policy

    By entering into a 'no win no fee' agreement (subject to our terms of business) you have to pay only when we are successful in winning you compensation. You pay nothing if you lose your claim. This way you can ensure that your personal finances are not at risk when pursuing your personal injury claim. This option means that you won’t have to pay anything if your compensation claim isn’t successful.

    Our personal injury specialists will be happy to explain these options to you.

    If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident that was caused by the negligent driving of an uninsured motorist, your claim could be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) under the “Uninsured Drivers Agreement”.
