Government Changes to the Road Traffic Accident Claims Process

Since 31st May 2021, government changes have significantly impacted the amount of compensation awarded for whiplash and soft tissue injuries. Due to the reforms, our team of road traffic accident solicitors no longer take on new claims for such injuries, with the following exceptions:

  • If you were a pedestrian
  • If you were a cyclist or riding a motorbike or scooter
  • If you sustained serious injuries

If your accident occurred after 31st May 2021 and none of these exceptions apply to you then you are able to pursue a whiplash claim yourself. You can do this at

If your accident occurred before 31st May 2021 our road traffic accident solicitors can assist you with your whiplash claim.

If you are unsure about how these government changes might affect you, please contact us and we will explain if we can help.

Road Traffic Accident Claims

Most people think of road traffic accidents as involving two or more cars, but road traffic accidents can also involve:

Road traffic accident claims can also result from causes other than simple collisions, such as:

  • Badly maintained roads and road hazards such as spillages
  • Defective vehicle parts
  • Defective safety equipment, which ordinarily would have protected you from injuries or would have reduced the severity of the injuries

Client Testimonials

Two departments one fantastic service

Frank, could I just take a moment to thank you for everything you and Jayne have done. Throughout the whole experience, I was guided by yourself and on occasions, it became quite complicated with my situation however I must express how professional you are and how well you navigated and negotiated the final outcome. Also, Jayne was always a pleasure to speak with and again professional and communicative at every stage.  Without a doubt the best Solicitors practice I have ever dealt with the results Macks Solicitors get, speak for themselves.

I can’t thank the PI team enough for making it so easy for me.

Highly recommended Macks Solicitors (James & Demi) kept me up to date, answered any questions and gave me the best advice throughout I can’t thank them enough for making it so easy for me.

A positive outcome in a complex case

Rebecca Montague Dealt with my claim and right from our first conversation she made me feel confident that she would do her best for me. Rebecca was genuinely interested to find out how I actually felt about each stage of the case and I was involved from start to finish. If Rebecca was off any query I had would be dealt with by her colleague or secretary. I have had an extremely positive relationship with this firm and was lucky in that I had a positive outcome in a complex case but this is not the reason I rate this firm a 5. I can only speak from experience and so Rebecca and her team get a 5 because it was always about me and they didn’t give up when things got difficult. Thank you I would have no hesitation in using your firm again.
