Here at Devonalds, we understand how a road traffic accident can have devastating consequences. In the blink of an eye, your life can be changed by another road user being careless, reckless or negligent.
Being involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault can be very frustrating, especially if the person responsible for the accident disputes liability or worse, denies being involved in an accident at all. Thankfully, we have liability dispute specialists here at Devonalds who can provide the expert legal advice you need to guide you through the claims process and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Our Personal Injury Department can also advise you on Motor Insurer’s Bureau Claims (MIB Claims), where the person who caused the accident has fled the scene or was uninsured. We believe in justice and obtaining the fairest settlement possible for our client.
We understand that being in a road traffic accident can be highly stressful and emotional, which is why we aim to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. We promise to keep you updated at every step in your claim and represent you with utmost dignity and professionalism at all times.
We offer no win, no fee agreements to many of our clients, meaning money should be no barrier to getting the compensation you deserve. Our car accident claims team will discuss your options with you in plain English, making sure you are completely clear about how your claim will be handled and what to expect throughout the process.

How to make a road traffic accident compensation claim
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, either as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or in any other capacity, you should seek appropriate medical attention and report the accident to police at the earliest opportunity.
In most cases you will have 3 years from the time of the accident to make a claim. However, it is then a good idea to contact an experienced road traffic accident claims solicitor as soon as you feel able, to ensure you can put together the strongest possible case for claiming compensation.
Our road traffic accident compensation claims team will advise you on:
- The strength of your claim i.e. how likely you are to achieve a positive outcome.
- What evidence you need to collect e.g. photographs of damage, medical reports, official police reports etc.
- What you can claim for, including any costs incurred as a direct result of the accident e.g. car repair costs, the cost of alternative transport, any events you had to miss as a result of your accident etc.
- Exactly what will be involved in the claims process.
- How long your claim is likely to take.
In most cases, road traffic accident claims are settled outside of court, saving you time, expense and stress. However, where required we will represent you in court, or retain an experienced barrister to do so, ensuring you have the best possible representation for your claim.

How no win, no fee road traffic accident claims work
We represent many of our road traffic accident compensation claims clients on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you pay nothing upfront to make a claim and we only get paid if we win compensation for you.
The advantage of this approach is that it means anyone can bring a claim without needing to worry about how to pay the legal fees. It also means that when we take on your case, you can be confident that we believe you have a realistic chance of winning compensation – there is no incentive for us to waste your time with a claim that has little chance of success!
We will discuss our fee structure with you upfront and make a clear written agreement for how this will be paid. This generally involves us charging you a percentage of the compensation settlement we win for you, giving us an additional incentive to get the best possible compensation deal for you.
