Road Traffic Accidents
This is the most common type of accident and you may have been injured as a driver, passenger, cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian. In more serious cases these injuries can be very debilitating and life changing. Our specialist solicitors, many recognised by Headway, have particular expertise in dealing with complex head injury and spinal injury cases regularly being referred cases by other specialists working in those areas.
Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are vulnerable to more severe injuries including fractured limbs or life changing spinal or head injuries and head injuries.
We have a particular interest in cycling accidents and have first-hand experience of the risks faced by cyclists from other road users. We also have expertise in claims for motorcyclists including claims against councils for defective road surfaces. If you are the victim of a hit and run incident or the third party is uninsured you can still pursue a claim - against an organisation called the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
In the case of a fatal accident, in addition to bringing a compensation claim we can liaise with the Coroner’s Court and if appropriate represent the family at the inquest.
