Minor accidents & claims by vulnerable road users.

When the “Whiplash Reforms” come into effect in April 2021 not every person involved in a Road Traffic Accident will be able recover legal costs in addition to their damages.

For claims involving injuries below a value of £5,000 where you were injured whilst inside a vehicle, a new “Litigant in Person Portal” is available for individuals to submit their claim themselves.

However, if your accident falls under certain categories, then you are considered to be a “vulnerable road user” and you are still entitled to recover the cost of legal representation in addition to your damages.

  • If you are a pedestrian.
  • If you were injured on a bicycle.
  • If you were injured on a motorbike.
  • If you are child or a “protected person”.
