Road Traffic Accidents

NOT YOUR FAULT?

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury (commonly known as whiplash) following a road traffic accident, which was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a claim against the party who was at fault.

Submit a claim form

If you are a driver, cyclist or pedestrian who is injured because of someone else's fault, then you will be pursuing a compensation claim against the other party's insurance company.  Passengers who are injured will pursue a compensation claim against the driver of the other vehicle if they were at fault, or the driver of your vehicle and insurance company.

NO COST TO YOU - 100% COMPENSATION FOR YOU   

If your accident was caused by someone else then we will recover the maximum amount of compensation available for you and our costs will be paid by the Defendants - you will not be charged for our fee

UNINSURED/UNTRACED DRIVER?

You can still pursue a personal injury claim for whiplash if the other party is uninsured or untraced i.e. if they have left the scene of an accident. A stolen vehicle which caused your accident may still be insured and we would investigate whether the insurance company will pay for your compensation claim. If not we will proceed through the Motor Insurers Bureau on your behalf.

WHAT TO DO?

To help your case, you should take names, addresses and telephone numbers of any witnesses to the accident and take photographs of the accident locus if possible. If the whiplash injury is caused in a Road Traffic Accident and the negligent driver has no valid insurance, leaves the scene or admits to driving a stolen vehicle, you should contact the Police immediately and report the incident.

WHAT HHD WILL DO?

Your case will be handled by an experienced solicitor who will obtain the maximum amount of compensation available to you. Your case will NOT BE HANDLED BY A CLAIMS HANDLER. We will arrange to meet with any witnesses to take statements. And we will arrange for you to be medically examined to determine the extent of your injuries. We will advise you on your eligibility for legal aid if appropriate and assist you in completing the necessary forms

We may be able to recover expenses such as private physiotherapy costs and loss of earnings, but it is important that receipts and other vouching documentation are retained. If appropriate we will organise private physiotherapy for you at no cost to you and arrange vehicle hire again at no cost to you.
