Transport and road traffic accidents (RTA) compensation claims

Our team of Personal Injury solicitors and lawyers can help individuals and their families seek compensation in a wide range of transport accident scenarios including:

  • Railway Accidents. Our team of Personal Injury lawyers can assist where the railway accident has occurred as a result of working on the railway or following an incident that has occurred at a station, on the track or on the trackside.  Railway accident compensation claims do not relate purely to derailments and train crashes but may also occur as a result of boarding or exiting a train, or as a result of a sudden movement such as braking or lurching. Our team of serious and catastrophic Personal Injury (PI) lawyers have represented clients involved in train crashes and have also helped passengers after they have been injured by large or heavy falling objects at stations.
  • Tram accidents.
  • Other road public transport accidents such as:
    • Bus accidents
    • Coach accidents.
  • Aviation accidents.
  • Sailing ship or cruise ship accidents.

Serious and catastrophic injury experts

Survivors of transport accidents are likely to have sustained very serious and catastrophic injuries and substantial psychological harm. Our experts have advised many individuals and their families with amputation, spinal injury, brain injury and disfigurement compensation claims over the years. We fight robustly to help the injured individual achieve compensation and assistance in terms of rehabilitation, counselling, home adaptations and equipment aids. 

Where appropriate we will seek to secure early payments for financial hardship, provide assistance in respect of employment issues, arrange trusts to ensure that benefits are protected and offer assistance with any Court or Protection issues for those who are unable to manage their own financial affairs.

Fatal accidents

Unfortunately, transport accidents due to their severity can also result in death. A fatality according to government data is recorded as a result of someone who dies within a year of the transport accident occurring.  Major injuries include injuries to passengers, staff or members of the public as defined in schedule 1 to RIDDOR 1995. These injuries include situations where the individual loses consciousness, sustains fractures, major dislocations, loss of sight and other injuries that result in hospital attendance in excess of 24 hours.
