Make a road traffic accident compensation claim

‘No Win, No Fee’ Road Traffic Accident Solicitors

If you or someone you know has been involved in a serious road accident – whether it’s as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian – you’ll know the huge impact it has, not just on your own life, but also on the lives of your family, friends and colleagues.

Coming to terms with what has happened may take a few months or many years – it’s different for everyone – and claiming compensation may not be an immediate priority.

But as you start to think about the potential long-term impact of your injury, the importance of financial help to cover your expenses, and to give you peace of mind about the future, cannot be underestimated.

You’ll have many questions and we appreciate that it can be difficult to know where to start.

We’re here to help you.

At Serious Injury Law, we’re proud of our record of achieving multi-million pound settlements for victims of road accidents. We’re dedicated to maximising your compensation and helping you and your family to start rebuilding your lives.

Client Stories

Why choose our road accident solicitors?

We have specialised in personal injury claims and in particular serious injury claims for over 33 years. With decades of experience, our team know exactly what it takes to successfully settle a road traffic accident claim and maximising the compensation our clients receive.

Here at Serious Injury Law, we recognise that there is more than compensation to consider after sustaining a serious injury.

We are therefore committed to building strong, trusted relationships with each of our clients and go the extra mile to ensure they have everything they need to move forward and live a comfortable future.

More than compensation

We offer you a complete service that goes beyond financial compensation. Some road accident cases take a long time to settle, so we work to secure early interim payments from insurers and help to arrange all your treatment, rehabilitation, transport and housing adaptations, whilst your long-term outlook is properly assessed.

Even after settlement, our service doesn’t stop – we maintain close and often life-long relationships with many of our clients, particularly those whose injuries make them vulnerable.

In these cases, our Court of Protection department manages our clients’ affairs to ensure that their future is financially secure.

We‘re proud of our track record of success in difficult road accident cases, including ones that have been rejected by other law firms or even transferred to us from firms who recognise that the case needs our depth of understanding and experience.

Accidents involving road defects and hazards

Not all RTAs involve fellow road users. Every day across the UK, damaged highways and hazards cause severe injuries. The local council is usually responsible for road maintenance but, with future repairs estimated to cost £12bn, there are still many dangers to drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

One example of this left our client with a severe spinal cord injury. His van aquaplaned and crashed when it hit standing water caused by a blocked drain. We argued that the local authority had failed to protect him, and he received a multi-million pound award to support him for the rest of his life.

We can help you in a range of situations, and our successful cases include:

  • Damaged roads and pavements
  • Raised or lowered grids and manholes
  • Snow and ice
  • Mud and leaves
  • Parked vehicles
  • Incomplete roads and pavements
  • Standing water
  • Grease and oil
  • Unlit road works
  • Potholes

So if you or someone you know has been in a similar accident, you can claim compensation for your injuries and damage to your vehicle, cycle or equipment. It can make all the difference to getting you back on track.

Things to know about road traffic accident claims

Being involved in a road traffic accident can be an overwhelming and devastating experience as it can happen so quickly. Here are a few important things to know about road traffic accident claims:

  • You should make effort to exchange details and get evidence at the scene of the accident where possible. This will be beneficial when pursuing a claim;
  • You can even make a claim for compensation if the other driver was uninsured or didn’t stop and is untraced;
  • Even if you think you may be partly to blame, you may still have a case – we can guide you on whether you have a case or not.
  • You can claim for loss of earnings and any expenses related to your injury.

See our guide ‘What to do after a road traffic accident’ for more information.
