Road traffic accident claims

If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident, you might be able to claim compensation.

Road traffic accidents - making a claim

Can I make a claim?

If you’ve suffered because of a road accident, you might have a case for compensation. Our specialist personal injury solicitors can help you through the process from start to finish.

Tees provides clear and practical advice after an accident. We'll tell you if you have a claim, and the likelihood of success. It's worth thinking about compensation after an accident, because it's there to help you. It can make things a bit easier, particuarly if you need more treatment or the accident put you out of work. We'll explain your legal options, and the best course of action. We have particular expertise helping people after accidents involving:

  • Whiplash
  • Serious head / spinal injury claims
  • Uninsured or hit and run drivers
  • Public transport, including buses and taxis
  • Fatal road accidents
  • Motorcycles and cyclists

No Win, No Fee personal injury claims

We offer a free risk assessment of your case and funding of your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis (subject to approval). If you're worried about how to fund your claim, please get in touch. We'll explain your options, and the sources of funding available to you.

What will happen?

Our promise is simple: we’ll help you get what you’re entitled to. Generally, this means financial compensation, rehabilitation or an explanation of what went wrong.

Going to court is unlikely

It's very unlikely that your claim will go to court: most personal injury claims are resolved through a private settlement. As a rule, only the most extreme and disputed claims will go to court. In 2016, just 2% of claims handled by Tees went to court.

You have a choice

Your insurance company may tell you to appoint one of their 'panel solicitors' to represent you. However, you are under no obligation to use one of their 'panel solicitors'. It is your right to choose your own solicitor.

You are not alone

Our extremely capable team of personal injury specialists want the best result for you. The level of expertise within the team, combined with our holistic approach means that you are getting the best parts of what larger, and smaller, firms can offer.
