Experience the difference
We are a firm of motor vehicle accident lawyers specialising in motor vehicle accident and insurance claims. We concentrate on what we are good at. We provide a one stop service for our clients on any motoring matter following an accident meaning we take care of everything. We have worked for both claimants and insurers and know exactly what you are entitled to claim. We know the process and we know the system. We provide free advice up front so you can determine what your rights and options are without worrying about cost.
Motorlegal offers a wide range of services, including:
- advice and representation in personal injury claims
- recovering the cost of repairs to your vehicle
- dealing with insurance disputes
- arranging a hire car if you need one
- recovering all other losses not covered by your insurance
Because we specialise in motor vehicle claims, we are able to deal with queries and resolve problems quickly.
If you have been injured, we will probably need to obtain medical reports to support your claim. Once your injuries have settled, your claim can be finalised. This may take a few months or longer depending upon the severity of your injuries.
If your claim does not involve personal injury, we will issue a letter of demand to recover your losses from the driver at fault and ask for payment to be made within 21 days. If we have to issue legal proceedings to recover your losses, it will take longer but we will always keep you informed of the progress of your claim.
No. Our initial advice is absolutely free. What you choose to do from there is up to you.
Yes – even if you are the driver at fault.
Yes. We can still advise you on what you need to do. In some cases you may only be partly at fault which means you are still entitled to make a claim for any losses or injuries.
If you are claiming compensation for personal injury, we act on a no win no fee basis. This means we do not charge you if you lose your case but you still pay for any disbursements we have incurred on your behalf e.g. medical reports and court fees. If you win, we will recover most of our costs from the other driver’s insurer. We only ask you to meet any shortfall in our costs at the end of the claim once you have received your settlement offer. All of this will be explained to you fully beforehand. For all other accident claims, we can work on a fixed fee basis if you prefer so that you know exactly how much it will cost from the start.
Most claims settle without going to court and it is unlikely that you will have to attend.
We are happy to see you at any time but we can obtain most of the information we need by phone or email. We will generally contact you if we need anything – we do this to save time and costs.
You are required by law to report an injury claim from a traffic crash via the ICWA online crash reporting facility. We can help make sure that it’s done correctly.
