Vehicle accidents

Vehicle accidents occur frequently, sometimes resulting in only minor damage to property, but other times resulting in serious personal injury and disability.

If you have been involved in a vehicle accident in which someone was injured, you should speak to a solicitor about who may be liable for the injury, both legally and in terms of compensation. Here we have set out the main aspects of legal liability for vehicle accidents.

We have also set out specific issues which might be involved in a vehicle accident, such as highway driving, speeding, seatbelts, drink driving, car defects and fatalities.

If you have broken road rules in the course of your accident, you also need to consider the criminal law implications which you can find in the Motoring section in our Criminal law section.

If you would like to obtain legal advice on a vehicle accident, then we can put you in touch with a local motor vehicle accident solicitor free of charge.

We have award-winning lawyers throughout the UK, ready to assist with your case. Fill in the form and we'll be in touch.
