Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accident claims can involve anything from the most minor of bumps to catastrophic accidents resulting in life changing injuries.
Sometimes it might not be clear-cut as to who is responsible for the accident and therefore it is important to instruct an experienced solicitor to advise you on your claim.
If you or your loved one have been involved in a road traffic accident you will probably find that your insurance company are keen to deal with your legal case. However, it is your right, and yours alone, to decide who represents you in a claim for compensation. If you have legal expense insurance as part of your motor insurance policy, we can liaise with your insurer to enable you to choose us as your nominated solicitor under that policy.
As well as physical injuries, you may suffer from psychological problems associated with the accident. You may also be unable to return to work for a while or need a hire care whilst your car is being repaired. We will provide you with the right legal advice to deal with all aspects of your claim arising out of a road traffic accident.
We understand that for many people it is not just about compensation. You may require early rehabilitation to assist with your recovery, or need support dealing with an inquest if someone died in the accident. Whatever support you require, our team of experienced lawyers will guide you every step of the way to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to. Our team now includes former Morgan Jones Pett specialist personal injury experts Sara Westwood and Simon Bransby alongside Colin Cook and Pasha Alnadaf.
