Millions of people use our roads every day, be that commuting to work, walking to school, cycling, driving work vehicles or catching the bus.
We all have the right to travel safely but unfortunately that does not always happen and, when things go wrong, the results can be life-changing. We represent clients who have been injured when driving or as passengers in a vehicle, cycling, walking or riding a horse. Our clients include adults, children and bereaved families as a result of such accidents.
Specialists in personal injury
We specialise in representing people who have suffered very serious injuries, such as amputations, spinal, brain, complex orthopaedic, psychiatric injuries and pain syndromes. Our in-depth medical knowledge of these types of injuries and experience working alongside medical experts enables us to fully understand what injuries our clients have suffered and the full impact they have on their lives.
If a person is injured in a road traffic accident they might be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the other party, for example, the driver of the other car involved in the collision. In almost all claims it is the other party’s insurance company that pays compensation.
It can sometimes be difficult for the injured person as it might be unclear whether the accident was the other person’s fault or the police might have dropped charges against the other party. We can talk to you about the circumstances of the accident and whether you might be entitled to bring a claim before you make a decision, even if only to put your mind at rest. You might have a strong compensation claim, even if the other party was not prosecuted for a crime, because personal injury claims are governed by civil law - which is different to criminal law.
We can also talk to you about the possibility of a case if the other party is unknown, because they left the scene of the accident before the police arrived.
