Who can make a road accident claim?
Being in a road traffic accident can be very stressful. If you have been injured by another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree or utility pole, you could make a claim if your injury happened within the last 3 years and someone else was to blame (even partly), and that person owed you a duty of care. You can make a road accident claim as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or cyclist.

Common Causes Of Road Accidents
There are different types of road accidents that can occur. Some of the most common types of road accidents include:
- Reckless driving
- Failure to understand sign
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Failure to recognise danger
What Are Some Common Types Of Road Accidents?
Road accidents can occur in various forms and are often unpredictable. Understanding the different types of road accidents can help you assess your situation and determine whether you may have a valid road accident claim. McGee Solicitors specialise in handling a wide range of road traffic accidents, including the following common types:
• Rear-End Collisions:
Rear-end collisions occur when one vehicle strikes the rear of another vehicle. These accidents often happen due to tailgating, distracted driving, or sudden braking.
• Intersection Accidents:
Intersection accidents involve collisions between vehicles at intersections or junctions. Factors such as failure to yield right of way, running red lights, or improper turning manoeuvres can contribute to these accidents. Determining fault in intersection accidents often requires analysing traffic laws and the actions of each driver involved.
• Pedestrian Accidents:
Pedestrian accidents occur when a vehicle collides with a person walking or crossing the road. Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable and can suffer severe injuries in such accidents. Drivers have a duty to exercise caution and yield to pedestrians, especially in designated crosswalks.
• Bicycle Accidents:
Bicycle accidents involve collisions between bicycles and motor vehicles. These accidents can occur due to driver negligence, such as failing to give cyclists enough space or not observing their right of way. Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as other road users, and drivers must exercise caution when sharing the road with cyclists.
• Motorcycle Accidents:
Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries due to the lack of protective barriers for riders. These accidents can be caused by factors such as driver inattention, failure to check blind spots, or not giving motorcycles sufficient space on the road. Motorcycle riders have the right to pursue compensation if they have been injured due to another driver’s negligence.
• Public Transport Accidents:
Accidents involving buses, trains, or taxis can cause significant injuries to passengers. These accidents may occur due to driver error, inadequate vehicle maintenance, or negligence on the part of the transportation company. Passengers injured in public transport accidents may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.
