Our expert car accident solicitors understand how distressing and traumatic it can be to have experienced a car crash, and they will help you every step of the way, from filing a claim, receiving rehabilitative care and treatments to getting the compensation you deserve.
You could receive compensation for injuries from a car accident, including common things like whiplash all the way to serious spinal trauma. A successful claim can cover the costs of treatment, rehabilitation, and any support you need while you recover, as well as loss of earnings because of the accident.
Our solicitors can help you to raise a no win, no fee car accident claim, so all fees and costs are covered. While compensation is never guaranteed, if you don’t win your claim you won’t owe a penny.

When we take on any case, we want you to feel reassured and confident in every aspect of your claim. That’s why we offer a service that puts your needs over and above anything else.
We promise to:
If you’ve been in a road traffic accident as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, and the cause was the fault of others, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our car accident lawyers will cut through the complexities of making a claim, establishing liability and then negotiating a final settlement for your injuries which fully compensates you and provides for your family. We’ll even be able to pursue a claim for you if you have been involved in an accident with an untraced or uninsured driver.Some examples of car accidents where you may be able to claim compensation include:
Each car accident compensation case is different, and so the amount you can claim will vary depending on your circumstances. The final compensation figure will depend on the seriousness of the accident, the level of liability involved, and the short and long-term effects it has on you and the other parties.
Car accident compensation tends to be split into two categories: general damages and special damages:
Our car accident solicitors will be able to give you an idea of how much you may be entitled to, based on their experience and other cases that have similar circumstances.
“We know that compensation can’t bring back loved ones nor change what has happened, but it can have an impact on the future by providing financial support lost to a family”.
“If it can be demonstrated that those left behind had a ‘reasonable expectation’ of financial benefit and that money would have been coming in for the family in years to come, it can be recovered”.
Our car accident compensation claims work on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you won’t pay a penny, regardless of the outcome of your case.
If successful, part of your compensation will be paid towards your solicitor to cover the fees. This cost will often be a percentage that you agree prior to court proceedings, so you have complete transparency of your No Win, No Fee arrangement upfront.
As part of the No Win, No Fee agreement, you’ll take out personal insurance cover, which will protect you against the cost of additional expenses such as medical records and court fees. If your case is unsuccessful, you won’t owe anything to your solicitor.

If we believe you have a claim, we’ll handle every step of the process and help you achieve the result you deserve.
Time limits do apply to road traffic accident claims – usually you have three years from the date of the accident to submit your claim, so get in touch with us as soon as possible to start the process.
There’s absolutely no financial risk involved, so it pays to speak with one of our experts.
We run all cases on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you don’t have to pay a penny to get the legal representation you need. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages, as a contribution to costs.
The circumstances of each accident will vary, and you may be able to claim compensation if you were only partly to blame for the collision or if you caused an accident due to something outside of your control, such as poor road conditions. If you weren’t wearing a seatbelt during an accident that someone else caused and this resulted in injuries, you may also be entitled to some compensation.
Keep in mind that the amount you receive will take liability into consideration, and so if you’re partly to blame you will likely only be able to claim a lower amount, compared to instances where you were not at all at fault. Our expert car accident lawyers will review your individual situation and advise on the best steps to take next.
Our car accident solicitors will take the time to fully understand the circumstances of the incident, the extent of the injuries suffered, and their impact they have on your life.
From this, we’ll create a Personal Support Package that’s tailored to you, ensuring you are taken care of by an assigned, specialist solicitor who will be available to you at all times.
You can be assured we’ll act in your best interests, investigating the full circumstances of your accident, supporting you through the treatment you need while independently assessing the physical, emotional, and financial impact it has had on your life.
We place client care at the core of everything we do and are completely dedicated to helping people recover compensation following an accident on the road.
In cases involving serious injuries, we can obtain interim payments or arrange for some of your compensation to be paid early if you require things to aid your recovery, such as physiotherapy or specialist equipment.
Beyond seeking the compensation you deserve, our car injury lawyers want to give you the best chance at getting your life back on track.
Fully understanding the impact an accident has on the lives of our clients, and their families, is paramount to ensuring we secure settlements which truly compensate victims. Many things can contribute to a road traffic accident happening, from outright dangerous and inconsiderate drivers to those who are perhaps too confident and therefore don’t drive with full concentration.
The reality is that most people get into their vehicle each day without much thought for the danger involved. We are used to driving as part of the daily routine, it is a necessity, and we just assume we’ll be completely safe. “Unfortunately, our work highlights to us each and every day that you can never guarantee this will be the case, and people involved in accidents require support and help in what can be very difficult times afterwards.
The vast majority of drivers who need our help have never imagined the huge disruption and difficulties an accident can bring to their lives, and that is why we work so passionately to help people secure the compensation, and rehabilitation, they need.
