Our expertise with HGV and lorry accident compensation claims
Our personal injury solicitors have strong specialist expertise in pursuing compensation for all types of road traffic accidents, including those involving lorries and other Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). Over the years we have earned a reputation for securing fair settlements for even the most high-value, complex and contentious claims.
We aim to remove as much uncertainty as possible from what can be a very stressful situation. Our road traffic accident lawyers can quickly assess your case and offer an honest assessment of your chances of winning compensation. We can then provide a highly accurate valuation for your claim, meaning you will have clear idea of how much you may be entitled to.
With the benefit of our experience and strong skills with out-of-court settlements, we can usually agree compensation voluntarily with the defendant in most cases. This allows you to avoid court proceedings wherever possible, saving you time, money and stress without compromising on the amount of compensation available.

Investigating serious road traffic accident claims
Your claim will be based on establishing two key points:
- That the defendant is legally responsible for your injuries.
- The level of compensation to which you are entitled.
Evidence from various sources, including witnesses, doctors and other professional experts, will be needed to build your case and prove these two points. Our road traffic accident lawyers can ensure this evidence is collected and presented effectively, giving you the best chance of securing a favourable outcome.
Out of court settlements for HGV and lorry accident claims
Almost all of the road traffic accident claims we handle are settled out of court. This approach allows you to get fair compensation for your claim while allowing you to avoid court proceedings.
We offer strong skills in negotiation, mediation and other types of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), meaning we can typically get you compensation faster and with lower legal fees without compromising on the level of damages we can secure for you.

No win, no fee lorry and HGV accident claims
We represent all of our clients pursuing road traffic accident compensation using Conditional Fee Agreements, commonly called ‘No Win, No Fee’ deals.
With a no win, no fee lorry or HGV accident claim, there is no cost to you to start a claim and you will only need to pay our fees if we secure compensation for you. If we don’t win compensation for you, then you won’t need to pay our fees – hence the term ‘no win, no fee’.
The advantage of this approach is that it means everyone has the option of pursuing a compensation claim where appropriate without taking on any financial risk.
