DPP Law – Road Traffic Accidents

David Phillips and Partners are experts at helping people claim compensation if they have been injured in a road traffic accident.

We can help you claim compensation for the following, among other things, if you have been the victim of a car accident:

  1. Personal Injury. The most common of these is “whiplash.” This can vary in its effect greatly. We ask specialist doctors to provide an opinion as to how long this is likely to affect the accident victim. Your personal injury claim lawyer will help and support you every step of the way.
  2. Policy Excess. This is the amount you have to pay out of your own pocket for losses that are otherwise covered by your insurance. We ensure that this expense is included in damages so that you are not out of pocket.
  3. Car Hire. You should be able to claim for the cost of car hire to cover the period when you are without a vehicle, for example while repairs are being carried out, or for the time it takes you to buy a replacement car if your own is written off.
  4. Loss of a vehicle when a replacement is not hired. This is an amount to cover the inconvenience of not having a car.
  5. Taxi and Public Transport Costs. These can mount up but they must be reasonable.
  6. Loss of earnings. Again these must be reasonable and proportionate to the accident and injuries involved. These days documentary evidence such as Tax Returns are commonly asked for.
  7. Loss of value of the vehicle after repair. This is particularly important where a high value vehicle is involved.

You don’t need to claim on your own insurance, and we’ll ensure that your no claims discount is protected, provided you are not to blame.

We help all UK road users if they have been hurt and the accident wasn’t their fault.
