The vast majority of our claims for road traffic accidents are conducted on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that we bear all the upfront costs, meaning that there will only be a fee if we win your case, so you will never be out of pocket.

What can I claim for after a road traffic accident?

As well as the costs of any medical bills, lost income and vehicle repairs there are a variety of different elements you can claim for. The amount of compensation tends to vary on the seriousness of the injury sustained and how much they affect your life.

Can I claim compensation for a road traffic accident that was partly my fault?

It’s worth contacting us if you where in a road traffic accident, even if you could be partly to blame.

To be able to claim compensation, you will need to be able to prove that the accident was someone else’s fault or of an organisation. If you where entirely at fault for the accident, it’s unlikely you will be able to make a claim. If you where partly to blame, you may be able to make a road traffic accident compensation claim.
