Car accident injury claim
Have you have been involved in a car accident or crash? Other road users have a duty of care to drive carefully and safely and they are responsible for passenger safety within their car. If someone is at fault, or has been negligent then we will be able to help you get compensation for your car accident claim. Compensation can include damages for your injuries, damage to your vehicle, potential loss of earnings, rehabilitation treatment and replacement vehicle hire.
