Road traffic accident claims specialists

Get the help & results you deserve

No-one chooses to be involved in a road traffic accident but you can choose your law firm. Even if your insurance provider has recommended a different law firm you are free to make your own choice about who represents you.

A car accident can have a serious impact on those involved and their families, whether you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian.

Our specialist personal injury lawyers can help you make a claim and will seek the maximum compensation on your behalf.  We will fight to get you the best possible outcome whether that's compensation, justice or rehabilitation to help you recover if you have been injured.

In the last 18 months we've secured more than £20 million in compensation for our clients.

Send us details of your accident/injury and we'll call you back

Compensation claims can be made for personal injury including whiplashfracturesscarring, tinnitus and psychological trauma (including driving phobia). You may also be able to claim for general out of pocket expenses, loss of earnings, care and assistance required and various other expenses relating to your damaged vehicle.

When can I make a compensation claim?

  • If the accident was in the last three years
  • If someone else was at fault
  • If you have suffered injury and/or been off work as a result of the accident
  • If you are out of pocket for miscellaneous expenses such as your policy excess, children's car seats and hire costs.
