If you've been involved in a road traffic accident in the last three years which wasn't your fault and you've suffered as a result of this accident you have a legal and civil right to claim compensation.

Road traffic accidents are a daily occurrence in the UK, too many people are driving too fast and recklessly and of course some of those drink and drive too. Drink driving has been happening for years now and now restrictions are in place most people are sticking to these which is 80 milligrammes(mg) of alcohol for 100 millilitres(ml) of blood which is around 2 pints of normal strength beer (4% or below) for a man.
If you do drink alcohol and intend to drive your limit is:

• 4 units for men
• 3 units for women

The main people prosecuted for drink driving are males 9 out of 10 being male and only 10% of under 21's are prosecuted, the peak age of being convicted is aged 27. If you are involved in a road traffic accident with a drink driver remain calm and call the police if you can. The police will be able to then take breath test samples from you as well as the other driver for analysis.

There are also many other different measures which may cause a road traffic accident these include:

• Wet roads
• Snow and Ice
• Speeding
• Lack of concentration
• Faulty car

If you've been the injured party in a road traffic accident, the police usually are called and will need to take statements from all parties as well as any witnesses. These statements will play an important part in your compensation claim when you proceed with the claim.

From this car accident you may have received multiple injuries to the head, neck, back, legs, arms as well as internal injuries but you may have been lucky and received only a broken leg or a few cuts and bruises. If your injuries have caused you pain and suffering you may have had to see a doctor and of had to pay medical bills and treatment costs. If this is true you have the right to claim compensation from the other party to pay for these costs. As well as this the compensation may include loss of earnings. You may not have been able to go to work which means you can't afford to pay your bills. Whatever costs and suffering you have had from the road traffic accident you can claim compensation for these.

Many road traffic accident solicitors' now work on a No Win No Fee basis meaning that you don't have to pay a penny in legal fees. Your solicitor will only take on the case if they believe it has a very good chance of winning; due to the fact if you don't win they don't get paid. The only costs you may need to pay are getting doctor reports and any other information you may need to pay for. If your case is successful you will receive the whole amount of compensation awarded to you, your solicitor will get their legal fees from the other party's insurance.
