Transport accidents on our roads, on our railways, at sea or in the air happen more frequently than you might imagine and can often involve multiple claimants suing the same defendant or defendants.

If you have been involved in a transport accident Hugh James can help you to claim compensation. We have recovered millions of pounds in damages for our injured clients over almost 50 years or serving claimants involved in transport accidents. Our specialist team includes Solicitors Regulation Authority (Personal Injury) Panel members and Association of Personal Injury Lawyer fellow and members. 

Transport litigation

Our transport accident legal team have led some of the most high profile transport disaster litigation of recent times, and many have a national and international reputation for their work in litigation such as:

  • Zeebrugge
  • P&O Lifeboat accident
  • Southall train crash
  • Ladbroke Grove train crash
  • Gerona air crash

We help passengers who have been involved in a transport disaster find strength in each other to get justice, answers and legal remedies against what can often be daunting and faceless corporations or institutions both in the UK and overseas.

Whether you have been involved in a large scale transport disaster or your injury or illness arose in more individual circumstances, we can help you get the right medical and rehabilitative support; we can arrange refamiliarisation programmes allowing you to travel as you did before; we assist with what can often be persistent and intrusive media interest and we can assist and support families in formal investigations and enquiries into the accident. As you would expect we also assist in establishing liability and recovering appropriate levels of compensation in what are often technically complicated areas of domestic and international law.

Irrespective of the mode of transport you were using, if you have been injured as a result of the acts or omissions of those responsible for the operation or repair of that transport we can help you.

Time is often of the essence in these cases – contact us today for a free and confidential chat to discuss how we can help you.
