Thinking of pursuing a road traffic accident claim?
Road traffic accidents can strike at any time. We know how devastating the impact can be, which is why we do everything we can to help you move past it and claim the compensation you deserve.
Whether you’re the victim of a crash from a car, bike, or public transport vehicle, we’ll help you understand where you stand and calculate compensation for things like loss of earnings. Every stage is handled with care, while aiming for a quick, full payout. We’ll draw all the relevant evidence together, including arranging a medical report if needed from a MedCo-approved agency.
Car Accident Claims
Injured in a car crash, or the victim of vehicle damage? There are many points to prove in the courtroom that someone else was at fault. We'll analyse the crash site, CCTV, police reports, and more to provide a strong legal basis for your road traffic accident claim.Find out more
Riding a motorbike is risky at the best of times. You may have to fight even harder to build and win your case. We’ll determine if you were visible on the road, and if the other driver or pedestrian paid enough attention to you, so that you have the greatest chance of a successful claim.Find out more
Cycle Accident Claims
Road users can easily threaten your life when you’re on a bicycle. Any trauma or injury could be serious. We’ll fully assess whether they were practising road safety, and where they may have fallen short. Loss of earnings and the cost of the bike can be included in what you’ll receive.Find out more

Why Optimal Solicitors?
We’ll save you money
An initial consultation will help you understand the cost of a successful claim. There’s no risk if you do decide to pursue it either, as we take every case on at our own expense.
We make claiming straightforward
There are various hoops to jump through when pursuing a road traffic accident claim, including getting a medical report from a MedCo-approved agency. We take care of the whole process to make claiming straightforward and stress-free.
We adapt to your requirements
Don’t worry if you’re rendered housebound by your injuries. Speak to our solicitors online or over the phone, and experience no delays to your case. We also have extended opening hours so that you can contact us when it’s convenient.
Do I actually need a road traffic accident solicitor?
You’ll likely have a huge amount of evidence to gather and sift through. Plus, you’ll need to prove the damages with medical records. Meanwhile, insurers and the police have to be contacted and kept updated. The police report (a crucial piece of casework) should fall into place with everything else. While you can manage this yourself, it’s a big responsibility – a successful outcome depends on your understanding of the laws around claiming compensation.
How long might a claim for a road traffic injury take?
It depends on the severity of the injury and whether the property, vehicles, or drivers involved can be accounted for. Typically, in a simple case, you might get a payout after three or four months. Anything more complex could mean this takes up to six months or more. However, following a verdict, payments are usually processed within a few weeks.
What information do you need from me?
The more we have from the get-go, the faster we can reach a resolution. Hand us whatever information you have from the other party who caused the accident – name, phone number, and vehicle registration are a good start. The names of any witnesses are also useful, in addition to photographs from the scene.
Shouldn’t I just use my insurer’s solicitor?
Your own insurer may recommend a solicitor. However, you’re not obligated to take their advice. They might rush a case through for less than it’s worth, or take days to respond to your request for an update. It’s better to have an independent legal team on your side – someone who’s ready to listen and put your best interests first.
