Road Traffic Accidents

It is a sad fact that thousands of people are killed on Britain’s roads every year and many more injured.

Whilst the majority of road traffic accidents involve fairly minor injuries, it is still very important that you seek specialist advice from skilled personal injury lawyers who can advise you on what you are entitled to claim.

At Dutton Gregory we have specialist knowledge of all types of road traffic accidents and we have helped thousands of clients win their case and obtain the compensation that they deserve.

Many injuries can prevent someone from working and this can be a worrying time, especially if they are self-employed or their employer only pays Statutory Sick Pay (SSP). If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and find yourself in this situation, we will make every effort to obtain an interim payment to try and ease this financial burden. 

Dutton Gregory will also ensure that you are examined by independent medical experts who have specialist knowledge of your type of injury. We will also seek, where possible, to obtain any rehabilitation treatment that you might need, such as physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment.  

Our road traffic accident specialists will listen to your needs sympathetically. Call Dutton Gregory, the personal injury lawyers today for free expert advice on 0800 0901499.

Drivers

If you or someone you know was a driver of a car involved in a road traffic accident through no fault of your own, and you have suffered an injury as a result, then Dutton Gregory’s Personal Injury Team can help.

We act for drivers of all types of vehicles involved in road traffic accidents every day and can guide you through the law relating to such claims. If appropriate, we can act on your behalf under a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as ‘No Win, No Fee’.

We know at Dutton Gregory that even the smallest accident can have long lasting affects and that when this occurs, you need specialist advice from members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel; lawyers who are expert in their field.

Call our freephone telephone number today for free, impartial advice from experienced and knowledgeable lawyers - 0800 0901499.

Passengers

If you were a passenger in a car or bus and were involved in a road traffic accident in which you sustained injuries, you are more than likely entitled to claim compensation either from the insurance company of the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in, or from the other party’s insurance company.

As a passenger, you are seen as an innocent party and therefore, in seeking compensation you should obtain independent legal advice from Dutton Gregory’s specialist Road Traffic Accident team of lawyers.

We can guide you through the process and take the hassle of pursuing a claim away from you.

We offer funding under a Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win, No Fee) so that you do not have to worry.

Cyclists

There is no law in Britain that says a cyclist must wear a helmet. Therefore, it is common place when an accident involving a cyclist occurs that brain and spinal injuries will sadly result. More often than not, the accident was not the fault of the cyclist but they can be left with devastating injuries.

Even when helmets are worn, serious and complicated injuries still occur. This is where Dutton Gregory’s specialist road traffic accident team of lawyers can help.

We at Dutton Gregory have been helping cyclists win compensation for over 35 years. We have specialist knowledge in these types of claims and have access to some of the best independent medical experts who can examine you and work alongside your treating doctor.

We understand that bicycle accidents can have a long lasting effect, not only on the injured person but also their family.

We listen to the needs of our client and offer an excellent one to one service.   At Dutton Gregory you will be dealing with professionals who know what they are talking about.

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident in the last three years, contact Dutton Gregory’s road traffic accident team today on 0800 0901499.

Motorcyclists

Although there are many more cars on the road than motorbikes, unfortunately more motorcyclists are killed every year than car drivers.   It is therefore inevitable that the majority of injuries sustained to motorcyclists are usually and frequently more severe; often compared with the majority of drivers and passengers injured in a car accident.

Frequently sustained injuries to motorcyclists;

  • Broken bones – legs, arms etc
  • Head/brain injuries (even though helmets have been worn)
  • Back/spinal injuries, including paraplegia
  • Psychological injuries, including nightmares, flashbacks and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Whiplash
  • Other soft tissue injuries

Here at Dutton Gregory, we have the skill, experience and confidence to deal with all types of motorcycle accidents. We can arrange rehabilitation/treatment for you and (if there are financial worries) interim payments too. We always act in our client’s best interests; advising them every step of the way.   We can arrange a free, no obligation consultation to discuss your claim and any concerns/questions that you will undoubtedly have. Our approachable personal injury claims lawyers; members of APIL (The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and The Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel (which recognises those lawyers as experts in their field) will meet with you at your home or in the office; convenient to you to go through everything.   Call our freephone number 0800 0901499 for free, impartial advice.

Pedestrians

A pedestrian hit by a car, motorbike or lorry is sadly always going to sustain fairly significant injuries; sometimes even fatal.

We at Dutton Gregory know that such injuries can leave the injured person and their family devastated.   We are also particularly aware that making a personal injury claim might be the last thing on anyone’s mind but that is why we are here to help. Our sympathetic, friendly and experienced personal injury lawyers can take the worry and stress away from you and your family.

We have helped, through advice, guidance; organising rehabilitation and treatment and even financial worries; thousands of pedestrians over 35 years.   We have obtained millions of pounds of compensation for our client; knowing that whilst money doesn’t always solve the problem, it can help in many ways.

Dutton Gregory’s specialist personal injury lawyers passionately believe that all victims of a personal injury accident should receive the compensation that they deserve, and we have a reputation for being fair, honest and fighting for our clients.

Call Dutton Gregory’s freephone number 0800 0901499 today and find out if we can help you. The sooner you call, the sooner we can deal with your claim.

Accidents caused by Uninsured/Untraced Drivers

Although it is against the law to drive a car without insurance or drive away after causing an accident without stopping to give your details to the other party, these things do happen. Here at Dutton Gregory we can advise you, if you have been a victim in these situations, about what you can claim and when.

If you have been the victim of a road traffic accident in which the driver does not have insurance or he/she has fled the scene of the accident (also known as a hit and run) and you do not have details of the driver, or vehicle involved you may still be entitled to compensation.

The Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) is a Government funded body, set up to deal with such cases.

There are some strict rules about when you must apply to the MIB; reporting accidents to the Police and time limits on making a claim and in order to ensure that you have the best chance possible, Dutton Gregory’s specialist Road Traffic Accident Team have the necessary knowledge and experience to guide you through every step.   MIB cases involving uninsured or hit and run drivers, require prompt action; it is therefore very important that you contact one of our specialist lawyers as soon as possible after the accident so that we can advise you on what to do next.

We are here to help.
