Will I incur costs in order to make my claim?
We charge 25% of any compensation you are awarded for any cases in England & Wales. The other party's insurers will only pay a proportion of your legal fees following reform in 2013. Your costs effectively become part of your claim that will be paid if we win the case but you will pay nothing out of your own pocket, our fee comes from your damages. If we don't win your case then our no win no fee arrangement means that you still owe us nothing.
It really is as simple as that.

What to do if you are involved in a car accident
First things first seek appropriate medical help. You must always receive a medical check up even if you feel that your injuries are not severe. You do not necessarily have to go to your local accident & emergency hospital but we would always recommend that you do if this is at all possible. At the hospital they can perform checks that your GP is simply not able to and usually you will receive a more accurate diagnosis from a more qualified doctor. However if you feel your injuries do not warrant emergency assistance you can visit your GP who will provide basic medical advice. Whatever you do make sure you obtain medical advice of some nature on your injuries.
* This does not include Hit and Run claims or criminal injury claims where costs cannot be recovered.

The French government has placed an indefinite delay on the imposition of fines for motorists who do not carry a breathalyser kit.
A fine of €11 was due to be imposed from March on all drivers in France, including those from overseas, who did not have a breathalyser kit in their vehicle. Now, the French minister of interior has said that, though the carrying of the kit is still required, there will be no legislation to enforce a fine for non-compliance.
The imposition of the fines had already been delayed from last November because of a shortage of kits but motoring groups, including the Institute of Advanced Motorists, still recommend that British drivers take one across with them if driving in France. The law applies to all road users apart from those on mopeds.
