Commercial vehicle accidents

If you have been involved in an accident with, or as driver or passenger in a commercial vehicle you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was caused by another person.

Because of the time spent on the road by commercial vehicles they are more likely to be involved in accidents than privately used vehicles. HGVs for instance, account for less than 10 per cent of traffic on trunk roads and motorways but approximately 25 per cent of casualties.

Where commercial vehicle owners or operators are involved in an accident, damage to and loss of use of the vehicle can result in a loss of income. If the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, items such as vehicle hire charges and loss of use need to be included in the claim as well as repair costs, damage to goods carried and any personal injury.

If you have been involved in a commercial vehicle accident and would like to know whether you may be entitled to compensation please complete the Application Form and we will provide a Free Legal Assessment of your claim. We will handle your claim on a No Win No Fee basis at no cost to you.

Public Liability
Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
