Road Traffic Accident (RTA) Claims

If you have suffered an injury in a road traffic accident our expert team of solicitors will ensure that your claim is dealt with speedily and professionally and that you get the best possible result.


Modern cars are much safer than they used to be. It is true that thanks to ABS, seat belts and crumple zones, the chances of you surviving a serious road traffic accident as a driver or passenger are much greater today than they ever were.

But although fatalities are thankfully now less common, it's also far more likely that you could suffer road traffic accident injuries that may require lengthy medical treatment and could have serious, life-long, repercussions.

Making a road accident injury claim needn't be difficult and you are not obliged to use the solicitor nominated by your insurer but can use any road accident solicitors you prefer. You won't necessarily be ineligible to make a claim even if you were partly responsible for the accident. If the other driver cannot be traced or is uninsured, you can still make a claim through the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).

Anyone who thinks they may have a road accident claim within the last three years should contact Shoosmiths national team of RTA solicitors. We have more than 20 years' experience in dealing with road traffic accident claims and can help you get all the financial, medical and practical support you need to speed your recovery.

Shoosmiths can call on medical and rehabilitation specialists, forensic engineers, barristers and other leading experts whose evidence can not only help to progress your RTA claim but can also give you and your family useful information and advice about how to cope with your injuries.

In most cases we can usually get things agreed and funded before the other side has accepted liability, so there's nothing to prevent you getting the treatment and rehabilitation you require straight away.
