If you or a family member have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in a road traffic accident, through no fault of your own, we can assist. We have a dedicated Road Traffic Accident Unit and our team of specialist solicitors will be able to advise you on your road traffic accident claim whether you were on foot, in a car, motorbike or bicycle.
Our approach to road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury and as such we recognise the importance of claims being dealt with quickly and effectively.
Dedicated Road Traffic Accident Unit
We have set up a specialist fast track Road Traffic Accident Unit run by Partner Jane Cooper. We have introduced a new, secure electronic system to make sure claims are dealt with within the tight deadlines set by the MoJ, ensuring you get your compensation as quickly as possible.
If you or a family member is injured in a road traffic accident - whether it is simple bruising and whiplash, or a more serious or fatal injury, our solicitors offer you expert advice and representation.
Our solicitors are experienced in assessing road traffic claims for accidents involving:
- Car drivers
- Public Transport
- Claims against the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB)
- Overseas RTAs
We can advise you on your injuries and any financial losses incurred.
If you have been seriously injured in a road traffic accident, we do everything we can to ensure you have easy access to additional support and advice on issues such as employment, benefit and welfare rights.
We can consider whether interim payments of compensation may be available to relieve financial pressures and cover immediate expenses and in the long term we can offer advice on education and rehabilitation as well as long-term financial needs.

Please call 0800 916 9046, email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the short road traffic accident online enquiry form. Our dedicated RTA solicitors operate from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cardiff and Edinburgh and can offer immediate and accessible representation anywhere in the UK. We also offer a free initial consultation to evaluate the circumstances of your accident and help you understand whether or not you have a case.
If your injuries were caused by the negligent driving of an uninsured motorist, your claim could be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau under the “Uninsured Drivers Agreement”. MIB claims can be complex and it is important to instruct an experienced solicitor.
Even if the motorist failed to stop and you were unable to obtain the registration number of the vehicle, a claim can be pursued against the Motor Insurers Bureau under the “Untraced Drivers Agreement”. It is a condition, however, that the accident be reported to the Police within 5 days of the incident, if claiming for property damage, or within 14 days if claiming for personal injuries. Failure to do so will jeopardise a claim
