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.

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly.

Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.
