We take over all responsibility for dealing with your road accident claims, leaving you to concentrate on getting better. We will get you the maximum compensation for your injuries and, if necessary, arrange for your vehicle to be repaired, get you a replacement vehicle while your own is off the road, recover lost earnings and other expenses and arrange private medical treatment.

What sort of road traffic accident claims do you deal with?

As a specialist compensation claims law firm we are experienced in dealing with all types of serious road accident claims. In particular, we deal with car accident claims, motorcycle accident claims and bike accident claims. We also assist pedestrians who may have been involved in accidents with motor vehicles, passengers in cars or on motorcycles, and help with claiming against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

Do you help with whiplash claims?

Unfortunately, because of a change in the law, we can no longer help people injured in motor vehicles (other than a motorcycle) with lower value personal injury claims, including “whiplash” injuries which last fewer than two years. Read the blog post: How the whiplash reforms could affect you to find out why.

But we can still help if you were injured in a motor vehicle (other than a motorcycle) and your claim is worth more than £5,000 for personal injuries, and/ or more than £10,000 overall.

Motorcyclists, their pillion or sidecar passengers, pedestrians, horse riders, and mobility scooter users are all exempt from the law change. We are happy to represent these people with their accident claims, even if the value of their personal injury claims is below £5,000, or less than £10,000 overall.
