Pedestrian, Cyclist and Road Traffic Accident Claims

Being involved in a road traffic accident as a pedestrian, cyclist, driver or passenger can be difficult and distressing. Our Personal Injury team will help simplify the process of making a claim for you.

WSP Solicitors are experienced legal experts, we know how important it is to fully understand your injuries and financial losses and how they have affected you and your family.

If the driver of the vehicle which caused your injury was not insured, we can help you make a claim via the Motor Insurer’s Bureau. The Motor Insurer’s Bureau acts as an ‘insurer of last resort’ for the victims of uninsured drivers or untraceable drivers, for instance a scenario involving a hit and run.

To find out more about what we can and cannot help you claim for as well as lots of other useful information about the process, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page here.

After The Event Policy ‘ATE’: After the Event Insurance is an insurance policy taken out when you sign the No Win No Fee Agreement. It protects you throughout the claim from being responsible for any payments if the claim is not successful.

Causation: Establishing the link between negligence/breaches of statutory duty and the injury/illness suffered.

Liability: Legal responsibility for acts or omissions.

Negligence: Failing to use the appropriate level of care and competence required in the circumstances. A negligent act or omission may result in somebody sustaining an injury.

No Win No Fee (CFA): No Win No Fee Agreements (also referred to as Conditional Fee Agreements) mean that solicitors take no payment for their work unless they win the case. If your claim is not successful, then you may be liable for the other party’s legal costs, but your ATE policy will provide insurance to cover that eventuality. If you win the case, you will receive compensation and the majority of your legal costs will be recoverable from the other side.

Occupational Illness: Diseases or medical conditions which arise as a result of exposure at work to substances such as asbestos.

Quantum: The value of your claim.

Schedule of Loss: A document which sets out the financial losses sustained as a direct result of suffering injury or disease e.g. loss of earnings, travelling expenses, cost of care.

Success Fee: The fee we charge which is based upon the amount of time we spend working on your claim. It cannot exceed 25% of the damages you are awarded.
