    UK only. Can anyone recommend a solicitor to recover post accident costs

    Dear Forum people,

    So last year I was commuting and ended up going through a windscreen (head on - all very horrible) and had a trip to A&E (only bruising).

    The driver was convicted of dangerous driving (15mth ban, 150hrs community service)

    I do not have any CTC cover or insurance (yes I know I should but I havent and yes I will get some), can anyone recommend a solicitor who would do this on a contigency fee basis ?

    Am in Southampton UK,

    Apologises if this is posted in the incorrect forum,

    Cheers

    Tom

    Although not the wrong forum for your post, there are only a couple of UK folks that check in here.

    You might get a better response posting in the regional forum:

    As a yank (traveling in the UK and needing a solicitor for injury) I spoke to my sport mates who knew solicitors through direct experience, and as suggested going through a UK bike forum might be your best bet? At the end of the day you do want a personal injury lawyer, and a bulldog to get the job done. Let's hope that insurance coverage was adequate and that some measure of damages can be recovered. Though I do know that payouts in the UK are rather miniscule compared to the US.

    That said - I hope you are getting on.

    Cheers,

    Essex
