Road Traffic Accidents

Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accidents can vary extensively in seriousness, from simple rear end shunts resulting in minor injuries to accidents where victims are trapped in their vehicles and require the assistance of the fire brigade to cut them free.

It has been estimated that there are between 660,000 and 880,000 road traffic accidents in the UK each year that result in injury. Around 80,000 are classed as serious injuries. With an increase in the number of companies advertising their services and with insurers passing your details to their preferred suppliers of legal services, it can be difficult to know who to contact for reliable advice.

Many people that we talk to after having accidents do not realise that just because their insurance company recommends a particular lawyer, they are under an obligation to proceed through them. People seeking legal advice have freedom of choice when it comes to selecting their legal advisor. A lot of our clients prefer to use Boyce Hatton as a local, approachable, friendly firm where you can meet your solicitor in person. Based in Torquay, Devon we can provide the best possible face to face service.

At Boyce Hatton, we have experience of dealing with a wide range of road traffic accidents from minor injuries to catastrophic injuries. We are also experienced at dealing with accidents involving pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

We understand that following an accident there are many things to deal with such as a replacement vehicle and organising rehabilitative treatment. From investigating the cause of the accident to arranging the medical evidence, we work with a number of professionals to ensure that your claim proceeds as smoothly and as quickly as possible.

We work closely with a number of private rehabilitative treatment providers in the local area, and further afield so that we can obtain the best treatment for you. We understand that one of the most important things for our clients is to get back to their pre-accident position as quickly as possible, if it is possible to do so.

Boyce Hatton offer a no-win, no-fee service. Please contact us to see if we can help you. We do not charge for our initial advice and offer a free, no obligation initial interview. If we are able to help you and take on your claim, we will do so on a no-win, no-fee basis.
