It can be difficult to obtain compensation in a car accident and there are many issues and deadlines to be aware of.

We work on a contingency basis, which means we collect no legal fees until we have succeeded in obtaining compensation for you. We help clients obtain compensation for both tort and accident benefits. In tort, you can claim compensation where the accident was the fault of another party. You can also claim for accident benefits, which are available to anyone injured in a car accident and provide compensation for rehabilitative and medical services you may need to recover from your injuries.

In a tort claim, possible areas of compensation include:

  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of amenities
