Road Traffic Accident Personal Injury Claims

Road traffic accidents include a range of cases such as driving a car, riding a motorbike or cycling, as a pedestrian, a passenger in a car, or being on public transport. If you have been involved in an accident which resulted in injury and other losses then you are likely due compensation. Personal injuries can have significant consequences for individuals such as inability to work and subsequent loss of earnings, medical treatment costs, and vehicle repair costs. 

How to make a Personal Injury Claim?

If you feel you may be entitled to compensation following an accident, Gildeas can offer initial advice and assess your prospects. Many of our clients have been involved in road accidents involving cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles. 

If you decide to go ahead with a claim for compensation we can pursue the claim on your behalf and provide support throughout the entire rehabilitation process, arranging any aftercare required as a result of your injuries, such as physiotherapy and counselling. Our clients advise us that they appreciate this additional support during what is often a difficult and stressful time.

Once you have completed the form on this page, we will contact you to discuss your claim in more detail. Our team will assess any injuries, losses, and damage you have suffered as a result of the accident before pursuing a claim with the third party and their insurer. If an agreement cannot be reached with the third-party insurer, we will provide support and legal representation throughout any subsequent litigation proceedings. Most personal injury claims are settled before litigation so it is very unlikely you will need to appear in court.
