We have represented many individuals and their families who have been affected by serious injuries. Compensation might not be at the forefront of your mind at this difficult time, but we understand what a difference it can make to your recovery, which is why we will do everything we can to ensure you get the financial support as quickly as possible.
A road accident can take place for a number of reasons, including driver negligence, adverse weather conditions, reckless behaviour and poor road conditions. No matter how you use the road, whether you drive a car, motorbike or HGV lorry, ride a motorbike or bicycle, are a passenger or a pedestrian, you or your family are entitled to make a claim for compensation for the pain and suffering caused.
Injuries that are usually classed as serious include those that have had a devastating impact on your life. These include:
For injuries that have had an impact on your life, there are many options available to you that can be covered by any compensation you are awarded. This includes:
We also understand that it may be difficult to pay your bills and provide for your family as you might have to stop working following a serious road accident. Any loss of earnings and potential loss of earning can be reflected in the amount of compensation you are awarded and should go some way to providing for you and your family.
Should you lose a loved one in a serious road accident, our solicitors can help you pursue a bereavement award. This is a sum of money from the government in addition to your compensation that accounts for grief and the wrongful death of a loved one. The current amount is £12,980 and can be claimed by a close family member, including a wife, husband, son or daughter.
All personal injury claims are required to be made within three years of an accident happening. In some cases, a claim can be made within three years of the date of knowledge, i.e. when you became aware that an injury was caused by the accident.
For more information on the claims process, take a look at our guide to making a claim.
Our team understands how difficult it can be coping with a serious or fatal injury, which is why we will do everything we can to help you recover after your accident. Because we have been dealing with these types of claim for many years, we have contact with many kinds of professionals, including physiotherapists, psychiatrists and counsellors who can help with your and your family’s recovery. We will also help you find information for any aids that may help you cope with everyday activities.
If you find it too painful to discuss your accident, are unsure about what questions you should be asking or are not sure about speaking to anyone about making a claim for compensation, we are more than happy to speak to a family member on your behalf. We are there for you and we believe the only way to settle a claim is by providing a personal and personable service.

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.
I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.
The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.
Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
Fantastic service from Ansa. Shes worked hard on my case and kept me up to date and well informed on everything that was happening. Pleasure to deal with. She deserves the 5stars!
