Leigh Day's specialist road traffic accident solicitors and lawyers focus on obtaining compensation, and dealing with claims for rehabilitation costs for victims of car crashes, coach crashes, collisions and road traffic accidents involving drivers, passengers and pedestrians. We have successfully represented many victims of road traffic accidents and their families in claims for compensation running into millions of pounds. We also act for many cyclists and motorbike riders in claims for compensation when they have been hit by cars, or involved in collisions.
Road traffic accidents in the UK
Every year over 3,500 people are killed on UK roads and around half a million are injured. Some injuries are truly life-changing, and even minor injuries received in a car or motorbike accident can have serious short-term effects on for those involved. Our team of specialist personal injury lawyers has extensive experience in handling compensation claims for people who have suffered catastrophic injuries, including amputation, severe acquired brain injuries and spinal injuries.
We pride ourselves on focusing on the individual and helping them achieve the best outcome from the legal process. Often this is not just a question of compensation, but perhaps early rehabilitation or an interim payment to replace a damaged car, motorcycle or bike. Our lawyers are experts in the field of road traffic accident claims.
Whatever the injury, we are here to ensure that you achieve the maximum compensation as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have also represented families at inquests where their loved ones have been killed as a result of dangerous driving or in road traffic crashes. We have represented the families of pedestrians who have been injured on pedestrian crossings, or who have been killed by dangerous drivers.
Road traffic crashes abroad
Our team of accident lawyers handle a variety of cases on behalf of people injured abroad and those left bereaved through serious accidents to loved ones in other countries. These cases are often complicated by factors such as hospitalization, repatriation and the collection of evidence for future claims. We have successfully secured compensation for people injured in car crashes abroad.
