We are a firm of experienced personal injury lawyers, not a claims management company

Since our establishment in 1995, we have specialised in personal injury work.

Our drive to provide our clients with nothing but the very best service is underlined by one of our earliest cases, brought against another firm of solicitors. A client came to us dismayed with the £1,500 in compensation that the other firm had obtained for him. We understood his unhappiness. We sued his former solicitors and recovered £150,000, giving our client the financial remedy that he deserved.

We obtain compensation as quickly as possible, sometimes in a matter of weeks

Most car accident claims are straightforward. In such cases, clients receive a compensation cheque within a few months.

Sometimes, compensation may be paid by the other party’s insurer in four to five weeks.

We can arrange for private physiotherapy, vehicle hire and car repairs at no cost to you

When clients choose us to handle their car accident claim, they can be confident that they will not only receive first-class legal advice but also practical help.

At no cost to our clients, we can arrange private physiotherapy and vehicle hire and repair. We aim to put our clients back on their feet both physically and financially.

Our expert lawyers are experienced in all car accident claims, from mild whiplash to serious brain injuries

We have recovered compensation for our clients in thousands of car accident claims.

Compensation awards secured by our team range from £1,000 for mild whiplash to multi-million pound settlements in serious head injury claims.

Our specialist personal injury solicitors are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and Headway, the brain injury charity.

We communicate in the way that suits you

We are happy to meet you face-to-face at one of our nationwide interview facilities, at hospital or in the comfort of your own home.

We can also communicate with you via telephone, text or email.

Our success is built on recommendations made by satisfied clients

Unlike many other law firms, we have never ‘bought in’ car accident claims work from a claims management company or an insurer. Indeed, we have never ‘bought in’ any personal injury work.

From our earliest days, our biggest source of work has always been personal recommendations from clients delighted with the quality, caring service that we offer.

We all trust our cars to protect us in the case of a car accident. But recent research carried out by a leading UK car manufacturer has shown that malfunctioning safety features can actually be the cause of accidents: increasing their likelihood by over 60% in some cases.

Simple procedures such as carrying out regular M.O.Ts or consulting your mechanic with any problems you having with your vehicle are quick and easy ways to ensure your vehicle is as safe as possible. In order to reduce your need for car accident compensation, you should always ensure you wear a seat belt and, if possible, consider investing in the newer safety features that some manufacturers now offer.

Although it is impossible to prevent entirely a malfunction occurring in your vehicle, there are certain steps which can be taken to make sure it is as safe as possible. This article will guide you through what those steps are. If you feel you have been the victim of an accident as a result of a defect in your car or negligence from your mechanic, this article will explain a quick and easy way of claiming car accident compensation, through Macks solicitors, online or by telephone.

Following a car accident, it can be difficult to understand where to go to for support. Suffering from a recurring problem for months or years following an accident can be an isolating time.

However, there is no need to suffer in silence, as you could be entitled to car accident compensation to cover the damages sustained. Longer term problems, such as back pain resulting from whiplash, reduce your quality of life and affect your ability to work. Contacting Macks Solicitors is a simple and quick way to see if you could receive financial compensation for these inconveniences.

Even if your health complaint has fully healed, the intermediate inconveniences, expenses and pain caused from a broken leg all form part of a valid car accident compensation claim. This article will guide you through some long-term, short-term, physical and psychological symptoms resulting from car accidents to demonstrate the wide-ranging problems caused by car accidents. It also offers simple advice on how to minimize health risks to yourself and your passengers in the case of an emergency and what steps to take to improve your chance of a successful claim.

Tiredness and fatigue are car accident claim hazards. The pressures of modern living mean that we suffer from tiredness more than our ancestors. Historically, people had regular sleep patterns in tune with the sun, today we have alarm clocks that can wake us at any time. Many people work through the night, or wake well before sunrise.
