When you have a road traffic accident, your life is affected in many ways. What you need is top quality legal advice from an experienced solicitor who will fight your corner. At Serious Accident Solicitors Ltd, we have years of experience in recovering compensation for injured motorists. We are waiting to help you, too.

If you have had a road accident, you can be bombarded with offers of assistance, sometimes directly from an insurance company. You should treat any such contact with caution. Accident victims who turn down an insurer’s initial offer and instead take legal advice from a solicitor get on average two to three times more compensation. It is therefore vital that you find a qualified personal injury solicitor to represent you.

Do not settle for less. Contact us at Serious Accident Solicitors Ltd to discuss your road accident claim. For a free, no obligation enquiry, call us on 0800 024 1400 or fill out our free online enquiry form.

We have different funding options available. Most of our road accident claims are handled on a no win, no fee basis.  

Types of road accident claims

Road accidents take many forms. Some of the most common types of road traffic accident we deal with include –

  • Car accident claims
  • Motorcycle claims
  • Passenger claims
  • Pedestrian claims

Do I need a road accident solicitor?

Road accidents are sudden, unexpected and shocking. Injuries can range from a simple whiplash injury to life changing brain or spinal trauma. We deal with all kinds of accidents. If the accident was not your fault, you are entitled to claim compensation for the injuries you have wrongfully suffered. 

Road accident claims can be complex. Unfortunately, too many injured people are represented by unqualified, inexperienced office clerks with no formal legal qualifications. As a result, they do not have the skills and knowledge to get you the best amount of compensation. 

If you have suffered a serious injury, making a claim will be one of the most important choices of your life. Choose your legal representative carefully. Do not let someone else do it for you. Remember, you are allowed to choose your own solicitor and do not have to go to a panel firm. You do not have to use the solicitor or paralegal recommended by your insurance company. 

You do not have to accept an offer of compensation directly from the other side’s insurer. We can advise you on how much compensation you should receive. Usually, this is more than the insurance company will initially offer you.

Why claim compensation?

The money awarded in a road accident claim is intended to compensate you for the injuries you have suffered. It is also intended to reimburse any financial losses and expenses you have suffered. We will discuss this with you and assess your losses carefully. Loss of earnings, treatment, travelling and medication costs are all examples of items we can claim for you. 

In more serious cases, we can claim the cost of care, housing adaptations, residential rehabilitation and private medical treatment. This is not an exhaustive list.

Without a properly calculated compensation award, you may be left significantly out of pocket.

 Who pays my compensation?

All vehicles on the roads must have insurance. Your compensation will be paid by an insurer. If a driver has no insurance, all is not lost. The Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) steps into the shoes of an insurer and pays compensation, subject to certain conditions. If a driver cannot be traced, the Motor Insurers Bureau also have a scheme which pays compensation in such circumstances.
