The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
The team have a vast range of experience in dealing with Road Traffic Accident claims acting for both Claimants and Defendants. We are regularly instructed by injured drivers, passengers, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians. As well as claims against individuals and insurers, the team have particular expertise in claims against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau for the negligent actions of uninsured or untraced drivers. The team are also instructed on more niche areas including road traffic accidents caused by animals, RTAs abroad and claims against public service vehicles. Given their expertise it is unsurprising that the team have contributed to a number of leading publications on RTA law, including the APIL ‘Guide to RTA Liability’ published by Jordans and the RTA section of ‘Butterworths Personal Injury Litigation Service’.
Our barristers are often involved from an early stage advising on liability, evidence and quantum, right through to representing clients at trial and a search of Lawtel will reveal the many cases in which members of the team have provided representation, from County to Supreme Court level. In addition, the team are also able to advise on all other aspects of Road Traffic Accident claims, from issues such as credit-hire and recovery and repair through to LVI and fraud.
