Doing ‘Everything It Takes’ for people injured in accidents on the roads
Our team at Hudgell Solicitors see the devastation, difficulties and disruption caused to so many people and their families following accidents on the roads across England and Wales.
Many have one thing in common – they have simply been in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and found themselves injured as a result.
We are passionate about helping people in such situations, and dedicated to ensuring they have the right support at all times.
Our team of specialists provide legal advice and support to drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
The aim is always to provide a complete package of support to help them make the best possible recovery, as quickly as possible, whilst also compensating for any financial loss and pain suffered.
Sadly, we also see the devastation caused by fatal accidents, leaving those left behind not only having to cope with the heartache of losing someone they love, but often left also facing worries over issues such as finances, childcare, employment and meeting payments on their home.
Our teams have an established track record of ensuring people left in such difficult situations have all the support they need.
Our Work and Our Campaign
According to statistics from 2016, there were more than 181,300 road injuries in the UK in 2016, with more than 24,000 people seriously injured and 1,792 fatalities – a five year high.
Our specialist road injury compensation team at Hudgell Solicitors supports hundreds of people each and every year, and through that work we have seen how even the most minor of accidents can have a long-term impact on life at work and at home.
We speak to many people who are unware of the extensive and sometimes long-term support an accident compensation claim can provide.
It was with that in mind that we launched our ‘Everything It Takes’ campaign to raise awareness that all people injured on the roads deserve specialist help and support, even if they were partly to blame.
The campaign underpins all of our work in supporting road injury victims.
We continue to support many people for years after accidents have happened, particularly in cases where the care and health of children is central to our work.
From securing early access to medical treatment and rehabilitation to helping to ease financial worries by recovering lost earnings and even compensating other family members for their time and any financial loss, we look to lessen worries in difficult times.
Our Campaign Commitment
As part of our campaign, Hudgell Solicitors will seek to;
- Ensure access to a range of specialists to help you cope with the impact of your injury
- Take away worries over finances and look to recover any lost earnings
- Seek expert medical treatment and full physiotherapy or rehabilitation packages as soon as possible
- Deal with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you are fully compensated financially
- Provide support to your loved ones and ensure the impact on their lives is considered
- Ensure you are compensated, even if you were partly at fault for your injuries
- Do ‘Everything It Takes’ for road injury victims
“Given the number of vehicles on the roads and the modern world we live in where there are so many day to day distractions, the number of people who require dedicated medical and legal support after being injured will only increase.
“For those who are most seriously injured it can be life-changing, leaving them needing a complete package of support to provide them with any chance of being able to rebuild their lives.
“Time off work, lost income, childcare issues, reduced mobility, the need for adaptations at home or perhaps even round the clock care are all matters that people can rest assured that our team will take care of.
“Similarly, people who lose loved ones – particularly family members who provided financially for their family – are often left in very difficult situations.
“They need people who are prepared to do Everything It Takes to help them.
“For us that doesn’t just mean a compensation settlement, it means looking to help all aspects of their life which have suffered as a result of their accident.”
