Have you been injured as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault? If so, the Shaikh Law are here to guide you through the accident claims process. In the past several years, we’ve helped tens of thousands of people make compensation claims for their injuries.
Accident victims regularly need time off work to recover from their personal injury – leading to financial problems such as struggling to keep up with mortgage repayments. In fact, many people return to work too early due to these problems, often making their injury worse. That is why it is important that they make an accident claim and are awarded the compensation they deserve – to give them the time needed to make a full recovery following their accident.
Accident claims should be successful if it can be shown that someone has been at fault in some way – that they have failed in a duty or not taken reasonable care – and that this fault or failure caused (or partly caused) the accident. This may be quite obvious in some cases, but in others, it can be quite complicated. With Shaikh Law, you can be confident that you will be looked after by a professional who will talk you through all aspects of making accident claims.

CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM
Car accidents can be very traumatic, even if you are not seriously injured.

The most common claim types following a car accident are whiplash claims but claims can be made for a variety of injuries. Our solicitors will make sure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to. You will feel far more comfortable knowing that the right decisions are being made about your car accident compensation claim and its value. Remember that all car drivers should be insured against car accident claims. Insurers charge insurance premiums so that they can pay out compensation claims, as well as make profits for their shareholders. You should not feel embarrassed about making a claim if you have suffered an injury from a car accident that was not your fault. Car accident compensation will not make you better, but it may help to cover your losses and ease your suffering. Anyone injured in a car accident – be they drivers, passengers, cyclists or pedestrians – should get independent advice about whether it is sensible and right to make a car accident compensation claim, and how to do it properly.
