Delivering the compensation you deserve.
road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim – and for low impact or minor injury cases, we aim to recover your compensation within months of your accident. You don’t even have to be the driver of a car to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation. Passengers, motorcyclists, pedal cyclists and pedestrians who have been involved in accidents on the road are equally entitled to claim for compensation.

What our clients say:
“I was involved in a serious motorcycling accident and I spent 10 nights in Northampton Hospital, my injuries included a fracture of my leg and I was treated with the insertion of metalwork. My solicitor Navdip Gill gave me a roadmap from the outset of the case and he stuck to this over the last 3 years and helped to secure a settlement of £37,000. Navdip always took my phone calls and promptly addressed my issues via e-mail and I would recommend him on any major cycling accident because of his attention to detail, commitment, knowledge and experience and his network of Surgeons who were able to provide a concise and supportive medical reports in my claim.” R Chambers, Northampton

CASE STUDY: Family of Chinese national killed on M25 secure £400,000 damages
A Chinese national was killed after his car was struck by a lorry when he pulled over onto the hard shoulder of the M25 to check his sat nav.
Although the man, Xing had recently been made redundant, and his earning potential was called into question, our solicitor secured £400,000 compensation on behalf of his wife and baby.
The accident happened on the 10th November 2007 and there was an issue over whether the man would have returned to China with his family, meaning his potential income would have been significantly reduced. There was also an issue in relation to partial blame as the man had stopped on the hard shoulder in contravention of the Highway Code. These issues were resolved in favour of the deceased driver.
