Winning multi-million pound awards
for our seriously injured clients

Car accident compensation claims

Every year, over 20,000 people across the UK are seriously injured in car accidents.

Fortunately, this figure is falling year on year, but for those few who do have a serious injury in a car accident, life is turned upside down in an instant.

If you, or someone you know is in this situation, either as a driver or a passenger, making a claim with the serious injury specialists at Serious Law does much more for you than secure compensation; our team puts in place everything you need to help maximise your recovery.

We understand that the process of making a claim may seem daunting and something to put off, especially in the immediate aftermath of the injury. It’s an upsetting and often confusing time during which you need to deal with medical teams, insurers and employers whilst informing family, friends and work colleagues.

Our team of serious injury experts will take the strain for you.

A service tailored to you

Our experience with seriously injured clients means that we understand how to prioritise the practical arrangements that need to be made for you and your family, which frees you to concentrate on what matters most: each other.

Serious injuries are so sudden, debilitating and painful, that income streams are almost always inevitably hit. We help to organise financial assistance to support you and your family as well.

We secure interim payments for you so that mortgages, bills and travel expenses can still be paid, bringing you some peace of mind during the difficult times.

Private medical care, rehabilitation and a wide range of aids, appliances and housing adaptations are arranged specifically to suit your injury and situation, with a view to making your life after serious injury as comfortable and fulfilling as possible.

Ultimately, you receive expert legal representation from our team at Serious Law LLP. We’ve been dedicated to serious injury cases involving car accidents for over 25 years - and that depth of experience sets us apart.

Car accident claims experience

Many of the cases we work on include, but are not limited to, spinal cord injury, severe head trauma or brain injuries and amputations, but our focus is solely on helping people through their life-changing serious injuries.

The reason we ask you to get in touch with us as early as possible after a serious injury sustained in a car accident is because detailed analysis of the accident scene and the available evidence makes a huge difference to your case and the compensation you ultimately receive.

There are numerous issues to be taken into account and our serious injury team will work closely with crash investigators and forensic experts to assess the circumstances of each individual case. Our experience includes cases involving:

  • Uninsured motorists

  • Lorries, HGVs, buses and coaches

  • Multi-vehicle collisions

  • Standing water, ice or snow

  • Learner drivers

  • Mud, grease or oil

  • Drivers from abroad

  • Unmarked junctions

  • Unlit vehicles and road works

  • Hit and run incidents

  • Taxi drivers and passengers

  • Stationary or fixed objects

  • Potholes, mud and leaves

  • Emergency vehicles

  • Poor or incomplete road surfaces

  • Misleading signals

  • Private roads

And we appreciate how difficult life is after a serious injury, so we’re happy to come to see you and your family at whatever time and location works best for you.

We’re very proud of our record of winning multi-million pound settlements for drivers and passengers seriously injured in car accidents, and we operate on a No Win No Fee basis for clients across the UK.
