Polytrauma and multiple trauma are medical terms describing the condition of a person who has been subjected to multiple traumatic injuries, such as a number of fractures and/or internal injuries.  

Polytraumas often are associated with motor vehicle crashes. This is because car crashes often occur at high speeds, causing multiple injuries. Polytrauma cases are complicated and require careful consideration by an experienced lawyer who is a specialist in road traffic accident law.

Lawyers frequently assess damages based upon previously reported cases. However, when a vulnerable road user suffers multiple injuries, little guidance can be found by studying previous cases as, when it comes to a specific combination of injuries, no two cases are alike. At RTA Law Scotland, we believe it’s important to look at the whole picture and how the accident has affected the client, both physically and emotionally. In compensation claims involving multiple injuries, this may involve asking a number of medical experts from different disciplines for their expert opinion on how these injuries will impact upon the motorcyclist’s life.

Early intervention rehabilitation is of vital importance. At RTA Law Scotland, as well as assessing any medical or support needs you may have as result of the accident, we will also take into account your rehabilitation needs and can even help with a planned return to work programme.

If, as a result of the accident, your mobility is restricted, we will arrange to visit you at home or in hospital, where we will discuss your case with you and your family and provide you with the expert legal advice and support you need to obtain the best possible result from your compensation claim.
