Road traffic accident claims

Do I have to use the law firm my insurance company recommends?

If you've been injured in a road traffic accident, your insurance company may recommend the law firm they'd like you to use. But you don't have to agree. You can choose to appoint your own legal experts. Slater and Gordon handle most compensation cases on a No Win No Fee basis.

Why has my insurance company recommended a solicitor?

Many insurance companies have what they call 'panels' of solicitors and other law firms, who they recommend to their clients in the event that they wish to make a claim for injury compensation. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them doing this, but it's important for you to understand that you don't have to use the legal firm that your insurers prefer.

Why should I consider Slater and Gordon?

We are one of the UK's leading accident claims solicitors, and the majority of the injury compensation claims we handle are dealt with under a No Win No Fee agreement, so there's no financial risk to you. We are also a nationwide business, with the resources to fight for the rehabilitation and medical support you may need, as well as the financial compensation you deserve.

Just as importantly, you have to feel comfortable with the accident claims solicitors who act on your behalf. You need to trust them, and believe that they have the expertise and the resources to get the best result for you. That's why you have the legal right to choose your own claims solicitor.

So if you want to appoint your own preferred law firm, contact us today on freephone 0800 780 2730 or tell us about your accident online and we will phone you instead.
