A road traffic accident claim can include a claim for any accident or injury involving a moving vehicle, whether you were a pedestrian, cyclist, riding a motorbike or as a driver or passenger in a car.

If someone is at fault, has been negligent, or in some other way carries the blame for your injury, you can probably make a successful road traffic accident claim.

We will apply to receive interim damages to cover your immediate financial costs in case you are out of work or need to pay for medical treatment. We will also work to recover damages and expenses including:

-         hire car charges

-         past and future loss of earnings

-         loss of pension entitlement

-         medication costs

-         property damage

-         travel expenses

-         aids and appliances

-         past and future private treatment fees

-         care costs

We can help you overcome your injuries and any financial implications the accident may cause, by putting together a detailed claim on your behalf.

Examples of recent cases we have concluded in this area include:

"Acting for the Claimant in a road traffic accident who has been dealing directly with the third party's insurers herself and who had received an offer of settlement from them. Taking over her claim and then settling the claim for more than four times more than she had been offered by the insurers."

"Acting for a Claimant pedestrian who was run over by a reversing bus. Negotiating settlement without the bringing of Court proceedings."

"Acting for a family of 4 who were in a taxi which was involved in a road traffic accident claim. Settling claims for the parents. Settling claims for the children and obtaining Court approval of those settlements."

"Acting for Claimant who suffered serious injuries in a road traffic accident as a result of which he was unable to return to work. Other solicitors approached by the Claimant had declined to take his case. The Defendant's insurers denied liability throughout. Following the bringing of proceedings and the listing of the case for trial and shortly before trial, negotiating settlement of the Claimants claim." 

"Acting for a claimant in a claim to the Motor Insurers' Bureau under the Untraced Drivers' Agreement after the Claimants car was struck in a hit and run accident."

"Acting for a Claimant motor cyclist after the Claimant was knocked off his motor cycle by a driver and sustaining serious injury when a vehicle turned accross the motor cyclists path and negotiating a substantial settlement." 

“Acting for a Claimant cyclist who was on the way to work and forced off the road by a passing lorry.  After identifying the lorry and its insurers, negotiating the settlement of the claim”.

“Acting for a Claimant cyclist who was on a cycle ride from Lands End to John ‘O’Groats and was resting in a lay by when the Claimant was struck by a passing vehicle.  The Claimant suffered serious personal injury.  Negotiating the settlement of the claim at a meeting with the Defendant’s insurers”.
