Road Traffic Accident Claims
DPP Law is highly experienced in dealing with all the legal issues surrounding road traffic accidents, including rear-end claims, hit and run accidents and whiplash claims. Our solicitors manage the entire process, from arranging your medical examination to achieving the best result to compensate for your injuries.
At DPP Law, we make every effort to settle your claims quickly and with minimal intervention – but if your case does go to court, you can be sure of reliable and supportive representation from our expert personal injury solicitors.
How Can I Claim After a Road Traffic Accident?
The best advice is to contact one of our expert personal injury claims solicitors as soon as possible after your accident. We will guide you through the process, organising the medical assessment, filing your claim and managing all correspondence with insurance companies and defendants.
In some circumstances (for example, if you are making a compensation claim for a whiplash injury that is less than £5,000), you are expected to fill out an online claim form. This can be complicated, and there’s a risk that filing errors could leave you out of pocket.
Contact DPP Law after your accident, and we will help you to fill out the compensation claim in the government’s online portal – ensuring that you are not missing out on legitimate financial compensation for your injuries.
