Road Traffic Accidents

If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault when driving a car, riding a motorbike or cycling, as a pedestrian or as a passenger in a car or on public transport, we can help you claim compensation.  Our Personal Injury Solicitors can also guide you through the whole claims process if the accident was abroad or caused by an uninsured driver.  

Injury from a road traffic accident can impact on your health and your finances both in the short and long term, with issues such as loss of earnings, cost of treatment and inability to work. We understand the difficulties you could be facing and will work to win you the right compensation for your injury.

Mr B was awarded £15,000 after being struck by an HGV.


“Mr B was injured when he was struck by an HGV pulling out from a side road onto the main road on which Mr B was cycling. He was knocked from his bike and suffered a fracture of his shoulder and a number of ribs and a soft tissue injury to his right hip. His bike was also severely damaged as a result of the accident.”
