If you've been injured in a road traffic accident (RTA) that was caused by somebody else, we can make a compensation claim for you. In addition to claiming for your injuries and any loss of earnings, we can make a claim for your damaged vehicle and other connected losses, such as car hire charges. Drivers aren't the only victims in road traffic incidents who are entitled to compensation. If you were a passenger in one of the vehicles involved in the accident, or were a pedestrian who was injured as a result of it, you may also be able to claim.
Car accident claimsOur expert car accident solicitors, part of our personal injury team, handle car accident claims on behalf of many clients every year. The experience we have gathered over the years means that we know how to deliver the highest level of client service.
Injury compensationUnfortunately, many road accidents result in injuries. Even less serious injuries, such as whiplash, can cause a great deal of pain and take a long time to settle. We can fast-track your whiplash claim if it is fairly straightforward, in order to quickly get you the compensation you're entitled to. If your claim is more complicated or your injuries are more severe, we will work hard to get the best outcome for you.
Vehicle repair costsMost accidents on the road result in damage to vehicles. These can vary in severity, from minor surface bumps to complete write-offs. We understand that you rely on your vehicle to get around. If yours requires repair work following the accident, we can arrange for you to have a suitable hire car in the meantime. We will make sure you are reimbursed for the vehicle repair costs and the car hire charges. If your car is written off, you will be paid its pre-accident value.
