We understand the terrible consequences of a serious road traffic accident and the impact on the injured, their family and friends. We intervene early to achieve the maximum compensation possible to fund rehabilitation and help people rebuild their lives.

What we do

Once we take on your case, we seek immediate financial help (interim payments) for you from the insurer of the vehicle at fault. We have good relationships with most defendant insurers, allowing us to progress claims quickly. We never simply send letters and await a response, but get onto the phone and push your case forward, ensuring the insurers understand the severity of the situation.

If funds are not readily available, we will issue proceedings and make a formal court application. We appreciate the immediate needs for you and your family and ensure your case moves forward quickly. We are known for our care and determination to fight for our clients.

We push for the best possible rehabilitation and oversee any package implemented for you.

We arrange appointments with the UK's top medical experts, ensuring your injury is correctly evaluated to fully assess any long-term impact.
