Road traffic accidents

Road traffic accidents are still very common and every year in the UK about quarter of a million people are killed or injured in such accidents. We all know friends and families who have been affected by such tragic accidents.

At Blake Lapthorn we have one of the country's leading solicitors' teams with a very wide range of experience in sensitively handling road accident claims and concluding them successfully.

We act for a wide range of people, whether they are car drivers or passengers, pedestrians or children, or the victims of hit and run drivers, or those who have no insurance.

Blake Lapthorn road traffic accidents lawyers will advise you initially free of charge.

For injuries suffered in an accident, take a look at our guide to Injury compensation and get some insight into who is likely to be responsible with our Road traffic Accident liability guide.

A successful compensation claim has to be based on the accident being someone else's fault and we will investigate your accident thoroughly, press for the maximum compensation and help you through the rehabilitation process to get better.

Motor insurance bureau claims

Where drivers, passengers or pedestrians are injured in road traffic accidents where the driver at fault cannot be traced or is uninsured we can make a claim for compensation against the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).

The MIB was set up to ensure that people injured in road accidents in these circumstances are not left without a remedy.

You can be reassured that even where a negligent driver cannot be traced or is uninsured we aim to achieve compensation for your injuries.
