If you are involved in a road traffic accident whether as a driver, a passenger, a motorcyclist, a cyclist or a pedestrian you need to instruct one of our specialist personal injury lawyers. Whatever the circumstances and whatever the size of the accident claim we will ensure that your claim is quickly and thoroughly investigated leaving no stone unturned to get you the compensation you deserve.
If you are insured do not let your insurers force you into using one of their panel firms who may be nowhere near you and only offer a “call centre” approach. In contrast we offer a friendly, highly specialised and highly personal service dealing with all aspects of your claim.
Claims for compensation for road traffic accidents can include claims for the following:
damages for the injuries you have suffered
the insurance excess
loss of no claims bonus
towing and recovery charges
the costs of repairs or, if the car was written off, its market value before the accident less its salvage value
vehicle storage charges
car hire charges
the cost of breakdown/roadside repairs
travelling expenses and telephone calls arranging for repairs to a damaged vehicle
damages for the loss of the use of your car while waiting for repairs or replacement
We have helped clients with a wide range of injuries from fractured bones which recover relatively quickly to the most serious of claims involving fatal accidents. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver or a hit and run accident when the driver disappears we also deal with claims against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
To speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer who can help with a road traffic accident claim or any other type of personal injury claim contact us now by calling, emailing or request a callback.
Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims, achieving seven figure settlements in personal injury cases involving amputation, multiple orthopaedic injuries and head injuries.
His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.
Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.
Gerard’s other professional qualifications include a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises from Strasbourg University.
What do people say about Gerard?
“I have the highest regard for you and your company.” – Dr Philip Steadman , Consultant Psychiatrist.
“He is a pleasure to work with and always gains the absolute best outcome for those who instruct him. He is highly responsive and he has an eye for detail with a sensible overview of the global issues.” – Colin McDevitt, Barrister, 3 Paper Buildings.
“I think that is an excellent outcome!. You have phenomenal negotiation skills. I work with insurers every day and to say the very least they are a challenge!” – client.
“It has been an unbelievably difficult time over the past few years. The decision to have my leg amputated was not particularly easy, nor was the rehabilitation. To do all of that whilst worrying about my case would have quite simply been overwhelming. Having you there meant that I had none of that worry. I have always known as I was in incredibly good hands and that I had nothing to be concerned about… You have made a unfathomably difficult situation immeasurably easier, and I will be forever grateful to you.” – client.
