Our Solicitors' Commitment To Helping Victims Of Road Accidents

We see the devastating effects of road accidents every day.

For example, over 5,500 people required rehabilitation in 2011/12 after being involved in a road accident. Unfortunately, 5,308 of these victims received a poor standard of rehabilitation and care.

Our infographic shows the specific body areas injured, and the percentage of people who required rehabilitation as a result of their injuries.

This is why our road traffic lawyers are dedicated to securing quality care and rehabilitation for victims of road traffic accidents across the UK. As corporate members of the road safety charities Brake and Roadpeace, we also campaign passionately for improvements in safety on the roads.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a road traffic accident, contact us for expert advice on claiming compensation.
