If you have been injured in a traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that you will be able to claim compensation. We are here to provide the helpful advice and support you need.
It’s no secret that legal costs can be expensive.
The good news is that our panel of expert solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis. This simply means if your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t pay a penny. Instead your solicitors will only charge a fee if you win your claim. This is typically around 25% of the compensation amount awarded, it may vary but will always be agreed with you upfront.
With our free initial advice from claim experts, finding out whether you might have a claim is quick, easy and completely free.

A traffic accident can change your life within a matter of seconds. Out of nowhere you can be left with complicated injuries and a huge psychological burden. It’s a lot to come to terms with – especially when the accident wasn’t your fault. Whether you were the driver, a passenger or another road user such as a cyclist or a pedestrian, it’s likely that you are entitled to compensation.
In 2018 there were 160,597 casualties reported on Britain’s roads (Department for Transport). Unfortunately many of them can be attributed to dangerous driving, poor road maintenance or vehicles that have not been properly looked after. Every accident is different, of course. But whether you have suffered minor whiplash or sustained life-altering injuries, we can help you to get the compensation you deserve – even if you were partially at fault.

You’ve seen the television adverts. There are several personal injury companies out there. That’s because – unfortunately – a lot of accidents happen that could have been prevented. But with us, you are never just a statistic. No two accidents are quite the same and each person who calls us is treated as an individual – with compassion and respect. Just the way it should be.
We also understand that seeking compensation can sometimes feel daunting. But if the treatment you have received feels wrong, you deserve clear advice to help put it right. So let us make you a promise: calling us doesn’t mean you have to start a claim. Maybe you have questions about your legal rights. Or perhaps you want to know more about the process of seeking compensation. We are here to give you free advice that will make things clearer. And we will never pressure you to make a claim that you feel unsure of.
That’s a promise.
The specific amount of compensation you receive depends on several things – such as the severity of your injuries, loss of income and any effects upon your employment. We also consider the psychological impact of your injury as well as any costs you have incurred while receiving treatment, replacing your vehicle or making changes to your lifestyle.
Because every accident is different, it’s difficult to put a financial value on a traffic accident claim – as this can depend upon the severity of the injuries and effects upon your life. One thing you can count on is that we work with a hand-selected panel of expert solicitors who are highly experienced at resolving cases like yours. You can be confident that they will do everything in their power to make sure you receive the compensation that you rightly deserve.

We totally understand that making a claim for compensation is likely to be a step into the unknown for you. That’s why we have made the process as simple, sympathetic and stress-free as we can. When you call, our advice team will take a few details from you about what happened and talk through your available options. We will put you in touch with a firm of solicitors from our panel of experts who are experienced with traffic accident claims like yours. They will complete a detailed assessment of your case – free of charge – and let you know how they can help you.
If your case is accepted and you want to go ahead, your solicitors will take care of the legal process from start to finish – keeping you informed throughout every stage. You will never lose control. The duration of the process depends upon how complicated your case is but most traffic accident claims are settled in just a few months – and you may be entitled to an interim payment while you wait for a final settlement. We are here for you.
You may be wondering where the money for your compensation comes from. With traffic accident claims, it all depends on who was at fault for the accident that you were involved in. That could be the driver of another vehicle, an employer that had not checked that a business vehicle was safe to drive, or even a local council if the road you were driving on was unsafe.
However it’s important to note that it’s extremely unlikely that your compensation will come from an individual’s personal finances. That’s a big relief for some of our customers. Instead it’s the insurer of the person at fault that covers the bill. Even if the driver responsible for the accident was uninsured, we can still help by claiming compensation for you from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
What if you were partially at fault for the accident? You may still be able to claim. That’s because with traffic accidents, sometimes more than one party has made a mistake. If you would like to know more about where the money for your compensation comes from, please call our friendly UK advisers on 0800 0511 511. We are here to support you.
It’s best to start your claim as soon as you can.
Thanks to our experienced advice team, finding out if you are entitled to compensation after a car accident could be as simple as making one short phone call. We understand that seeking compensation may be something you have been putting off while you recover from your accident and come to terms with what happened. But by law you must begin any claim you wish to make within certain timeframes of the accident taking place. Following a serious accident, we understand that the claims process can be difficult to face.
But knowing where you stand legally can help to bring you some closure on your accident.
And it’s always best to get things moving as soon as you can while you can remember as much as possible about what happened. No matter what, we will always do everything we can to make sure your compensation experience is simple, straightforward and compassionate.
