What is a Road Traffic Accident Claim?
You could claim compensation for an injury sustained in a road traffic accident if you were not at fault.
Road traffic accidents can be caused by:
- Another driver’s error or lack of concentration
- Poor conditions due to inadequate lighting or large potholes
- Unclear signs
- Other distractions such as smoke from a bonfire in a neighbouring field blowing across the road
You may also be able to claim compensation for a road accident if:
- You were partially at fault
- The other driver did not stop and can’t be traced
- The responsible driver was uninsured

Road Traffic Accidents
The Compensation Experts Scotland can help with any road traffic claim, including those involving lorries, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and buses. Whether you recover in a few days or suffer life-altering injuries, you should not have to experience financial loss in the aftermath of an accident that was not your fault.
We work with a select group of personal injury lawyers and will pair you with the one whose experience and knowledge best suits your needs. We appreciate that making a claim can be stressful if you are still recovering from your ordeal, so we do all we can to support and keep you informed during the process.
You, or the lawyer acting on your behalf, will need to fulfil two important criteria for your claim to be a success. Firstly, that you have suffered a genuine injury. This is usually a straightforward matter of obtaining your medical notes, but your solicitor may also ask you to see an independent medical specialist to ascertain the extent of the damage and how it will affect your life.
The second task is to prove the fault lies with another party and that you were not to blame for your injuries. You can still make a claim if you are partially at fault but your compensation payment will reduce in proportion to the extent of your responsibility.
