If you have been involved in a road traffic accident within the last 3 years as a driver, passenger or pedestrian, which was not your fault, you are entitled to claim compensation. Road traffic accidents are common and injuries suffered range from minor whiplash to fatal injuries.
You can claim for pain and suffering as well as injuries. You can also recover compensation for expenses and losses you have incurred, such as prescription and travelling expenses and loss of earnings.
You may also be entitled to support to speed up your recovery, such as medical treatment, physiotherapy and other forms of rehabilitation.
Depending on the severity of your injury or the out of pocket expenses you have incurred, it may be possible to resolve this quickly for you using an scheme developed between insurers and claimant solicitors which speeds up the process.
In claims involving more serious injuries, we can liaise with the police and if necessary accident investigators and medical experts to investigate the accident and pursue a claim for compensation on your behalf.
In the event of a loved one’s death, H M Coroner may need to conduct an Inquest to determine what has happened. The Coroner’s office will liaise with the family of the person who has died, and they are also permitted to have a legal representative at the Inquest hearing to ask questions on their behalf. Jennie and her team have extensive experience of Inquests and will explain the process, prepare for the Inquest hearing, liaise with the Coroner and attend the hearing with the family.
