Car Accident Injury Compensation Experts
We have over 40 years of experience obtaining compensation for injured car accident victims. Our website contains details of many of the cases we have handled, together with many glowing testimonials received from grateful clients after their claims have been finalised.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident, we can assist you and them in dealing with the insurance companies, the claims process and the final outcome.
The amount of compensation which is available will depend on the severity of the injuries, the impact the injuries have on the injured person’s life, ability to work, a need for domestic and other assistance, medical treatment and so on.
Compensation claims can be complex and insurers can often be difficult and obstructive.
How to make a claim
This will largely depend on when the accident occurred. There are different compensation schemes for accidents before and after 30 November 2017.
Both schemes require claim forms to be completed and lodged with the relevant insurance companies.
We can assist you with the completion and the lodging of claim forms, and explain to you the claims process and the compensation/damages to which you are likely to be entitled.
Persons who are covered by the compensation schemes include drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists, even if those injuries occurred in a “hit and run” situation. Those injured are still covered for compensation even if the car being driven by the driver at fault was uninsured and unregistered.
Compensation can generally be available, even if the injured person was largely at fault.
Payment of costs
We act for injured persons on a “no win, no fee” basis.
If a claim is successful the insurance company has to pay a large proportion of the legal costs.
What should you do?

Car accident case studies:
Brian, aged 62, was driving home one night when he was hit at speed by a stolen vehicle. He injured his neck and back in the accident and his car was written off.
Brian kept himself fit and well prior to the accident, but he had some longstanding health problems including pain in his back before this accident.
The insurance company refused to pay for surgery and treatment he needed on the basis that it was not related to the car accident. We were able to prove, through expert medical evidence, that the majority of his problems were caused by the car accident and not his pre-existing condition. We obtained an excellent settlement for Brian including a generous allowance to cover all his medical treatment needs and housecleaning and gardening care for the future.
