Road Traffic Accident Legal Advice
MK Legal have a specialist Road Traffic Accident Claims Team who are focused on helping victims claim compensation at minimal financial risk and inconvenience to the Claimant.
Although all drivers are obliged to carry third party insurance, you may find that your insurance company directs you to one of their "panel firms". Invariably a "panel firm" will only receive instructions from your insurers if they pay a referral fee to act on your behalf.
In effect your claim is being sold off by your insurance company.
At MK Legal we do not pay insurers for the privilege of acting for their clients. We will however, where appropriate, ensure you receive practical help such as the payment of physiotherapy fees to ensure that you achieve the best outcome from your injuries.
Call 01604 828282 and speak to one of our specialist lawyers and we will ensure that you receive the best possible care and expertise throughout your claim
MK Legal are specialists in motorcycle accident compensation claims. Motorcyclists are ten times more likely than car users and twice as likely as cyclists to be killed or seriously injured on UK roads.
There have been huge advances in the protection of motorists and their passengers over the last forty years. The introduction of crumple zones, side impact protection, airbags and improved safety design has reduced the incidence of serious injury in accidents involving cars. Unfortunately because of the nature of motorcycling, safety improvements have largely been limited to helmet design and improved body armour which still leaves the motorcyclist and pillion rider vulnerable to serious injury in the event of an accident.
The MK Legal Personal Injury Team have considerable experience in dealing with injuries of the utmost severity, many of which have been suffered by motorcyclists and their pillion riders.
In serious injuries cases, it is important for the client and their relatives to have close personal access to their legal representative. Insurers, however, continue to refer clients with serious injuries to distant factory-style "panel firms" when the client and his family would be best served by a more personal local service.
Don't rely merely on your insurance company's recommended panel solicitors. You have a choice.

Organisations that promote safe motorcycling:
Each of these organisations promotes safe motorcycling and aim to raise awareness to all road users about special issues which concern motorcyclists. These organisations provide valuable information for individuals who use their motorcycles both for commuting or just ride for pleasure.
Unlike motorists and motorcyclists, passengers are not obliged to obtain third party insurance!
Many passengers can be left confused and uncertain about their rights after they have been involved in an accident. This is particularly relevant when the passenger is a spouse, child or friend of the driver and are often embarrassed to raise the issue of fault with the driver.
If a passenger is injured, they should always receive separate legal advice to that of the driver.
MK Legal's lawyers can advise passengers how they can best pursue a claim for compensation whether the driver or third party is responsible and even if they are uninsured. Passengers normally have the best possible chance of recovering compensation. MK Legal will deal with passengers under a "No Win No Fee" arrangement and will ensure they receive 100% of any compensation awarded.

If you are a pedestrian and suffer injuries as a result of an accident involving a motorist, motorcyclist or cyclist, you will invariably have a claim for compensation.
The accident does not necessarily have to be on the road as pedestrians can be injured whilst walking along the footpath or walking through a car park. Unfortunately many pedestrians do not pursue a claim for their injuries as they believe that it is entirely their fault. The standard of care that the law imposes on motorists far exceeds that of pedestrians.
Eg. A woman dressed entirely in black crossing a dual carriageway in the early hours of the morning preferring to cross the road rather than use an underpass would at first sight be considered entirely responsible for the accident. However the standard of care imposed on a driver is such that in a very similar case, the driver was found to be 2/3rd negligent and the pedestrian just 1/3rd responsible.
Our expert lawyers will ensure that a pedestrian without insurance will be able to pursue their claim through a "No Win No Fee" arrangement which will ensure that they receive 100% of any compensation awarded.
MK Legal are specialists in cycle accident compensation claims.
There have been huge advances in the protection of motorists and their passengers over the last forty years. The introduction of crumple zones, side impact protection, airbags and improved overall safety design has reduced the incidences of serious injury in car accidents. Unfortunately cyclists are therefore most vulnerable to serious injury in the event of an accident whether or not the injury is serious or minor.
The MK Legal Personal Injury Team will advise injured cyclists of their rights and liabilities and deal with their claim through a "No Win No Fee" arrangement.
In many injury cases, it is important for the client to have close personal access to their legal representative. Unfortunately insurers will still refer clients, even those with serious injuries, to distant factory-style "panel firms" when the client would be best served by an expert, yet easily accessible, local firm.
Don't always accept your insurance company's recommended panel solicitors. Challenge their choice!
