If you or a loved one has been involved in a road traffic accident, our Personal Injury Lawyers could help you get the compensation, rehabilitation and support you deserve. Each year we help thousands of people to claim following a road accident, and we could help you too.
It's important to contact our Personal injury team as soon as possible. Insurance companies often try and settle claims directly, which can mean you get less compensation than you're entitled to. Call us and we'll let you know if you're likely to have a successful claim, and how much compensation you might get.
You don't pay anything upfront, and there's nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.
We'll keep you updated throughout your claim so you'll know how much compensation to expect.
In most cases, you must start your claim within three years of the accident and we advise you to contact us as soon as possible.
There are some exceptions to this three-year time limit e.g. claims involving children or people without the mental capacity.
It's worth speaking to our Personal Injury team, even if you think you were to blame. It may be that you were partly to blame, but you may still be able to claim if someone else was also partially at fault. We'll talk to you about what happened and give you an honest view on your chances of receiving compensation.
The time it takes for Road Accident Claim depends on a range of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the complexity of the case. Some simple cases may settle in a few months, whereas more complex cases will take longer.
We can also assist in out of pocket expenses; including travel costs i.e. having to travel to hospital, prescription, medication and physiotherapy charges
Slip & Trips Claims
Slips, trips and falls can leave you with a range of injuries, some of which can have a significant impact on your long-term health. If you are out and about and you have an accident because the proper safety precautions are not in place, our Personal Injury Lawyers could help you get the compensation you deserve.
Many people who slip or trip believe that the accident was their own fault, but in fact most accidents could be prevented if the right safety procedures were in place.

Maintaining a tidy workplace
Cleaning up/signposting spillages
Slip & Trips include:
Tripping on a uneven pavement
Falling down stairs because of defective handrails or uneven surfaces
Falling from a raised height, such as a ramp or walkway
Accident at Work Claims:
You may be able to make an accident at work claim to our Personal Injury Lawyers
if you’ve been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed.
In some instances you may even be able to claim if you caused the accident, for instance if your injuries were made worse because of a piece of faulty equipment.
It may also be possible to claim if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse.
