No Win No Fee Road Traffic Accident Claim Solicitors

I have put together a list of some basic steps to follow after a road accident. You should carry out as many of the steps as possible as it may assist your claim.

  • Stop! You must stop after a road traffic accident.
  • Keep calm! No matter how angry you may feel.
  • Write down the make, model, colour and registration number of all vehicles involved in the accident.
  • Write down the name, address and insurance details of the other driver. You are entitled to these details by law.
  • Give the other driver your name, address and insurance details. He/she is entitled to these details by law.
  • Write down the damage caused to all vehicles involved.
  • Write down the name, address and telephone number of any witnesses.
  • If the other driver drives off, admits to driving a stolen vehicle, appears to have been drinking or if you feel it is necessary anyway - call the police.
  • Draw a sketch of the accident scene (show road junctions, traffic lights and the position of all vehicles involved).
  • Write down what happened as quickly as possible.
  • If you can, take photographs of the accident site and the damage to your vehicles - use you mobile phone.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company, even if the accident wasn't your fault. Your insurance policy will require you to do this. This is not the same as making a claim under your policy.
  • Get medical treatment for any injuries you sustain (even if symptoms don't appear until some time afterwards).

We have been using Clough & Willis for ten years and found them to be very efficient in all aspects of their work. What I like about their firm is that they cover a wide variety of legal services and are very quick to respond to our needs.

From first contact to the last, everyone has been very professional and reassuring through what has been an emotional and stressful time for us and without the help of your company it would have been much more difficult for me and my husband.

Lorraine, I would just like to say "thank you very much" for all your hard work and assistance in the letting of the above property. The negotiations were somewhat protracted, due to a breakdown on my client's side, and I feel that your persistence and hard work led to the eventual lease completion. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Kind regards, Neil Higson, for and on behalf of Nolan Redshaw Ltd
