We discuss your case in detail and will take you through the process step by step.

Where possible, you should also have the driver’s details. If the driver fled the scene, the police should have been called.

    What’s usually covered by compensation?

    The amount of compensation you will be entitled to typically depends on how badly you have been affected by the accident. Factors that will be taken into consideration include the type and severity of the injury, the financial implications, and how long it takes to recover.
    Other considerations include:

    • The cost of any treatment
    • Travel costs for any hospital appointments
    • The cost of any care you have had to receive due to the accident
    • Loss of earnings due to time off work or any impacts on your job and prospects
    • Whether you were at all to blame for the accident. For instance, if you weren’t wearing a seatbelt, that may have contributed to the severity of your injuries even if the accident wasn’t your fault.

    If you’ve been involved in a serious accident, the implications on your physical, emotional, and financial health are likely to be more severe. We understand that claimants who have sustained serious injuries may be struggling with pain and shock, and we offer a compassionate and accessible service to ensure a stress-free legal process.
