Support when making a road traffic accident claim

As specialists in handling road accident compensation claims, we see the devastating impact that serious accidents can have on peoples’ lives. Even the smallest of road accidents can leave people with long-term injuries, and the most serious of accidents can be life-changing, leaving the victims needing a complete package of support to provide them with any chance of being able to rebuild their lives.

Aside from the immediate possibility of injury, and damage to a vehicle, car accident claims can result in time off work, lost wages, reduced mobility, and countless other costs, amongst many other eventualities. Here at Hudgell Solicitors, we will do all we can to help you secure the financial help and support you need to get you back on the road to recovery.

Claiming compensation for road traffic accidents can be complicated, as there can often be issues and disputes over liability, and complications if you are in an accident with an uninsured driver. Our team of specialists are experienced in negotiating final settlement figures with insurers to fully compensate the injured party.

We work with the following organisations to ensure we get the best results for you:

  • The Law Society (Lexcel): Lexcel Accreditation from The Law Society and recommended as a leading firm in The Legal 500’s 2016 edition.

  • The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB): As part of the Road Traffic Act 1988, every insurer underwriting compulsory motor insurance is obliged to be a member and must contribute to its funding helping them to compensate victims of accidents caused by uninsured or untraceable motorists.

  • The Financial Ombudsman: In place for you to complain about your motor insurer when you are unable to resolve the dispute with them yourself – the ombudsman can be contacted for impartial advice and assistance.
