    Commercial vehicle accident claims

    Involvement in a road traffic accident can be traumatic and stressful for you and your loved ones, especially if it wasn’t your fault. You may be driving a commercial vehicle like a truck or a lorry in a collision, and you could be entitled to a replacement hire vehicle or even compensation.

    Through our supply partners, Watermans can organise a replacement lorry or truck hire and recover the hire costs directly from the at-fault party’s insurance company on your behalf.

    Because we deal with the at-fault party’s insurer directly, there is an alternative to a claim on your own insurance policy and so your No Claims Discount should remain intact.

    You may also be suffering from injuries as a result of your accident, and find yourself out of work and experiencing a loss of earnings.

    At Watermans, our road traffic accident solicitors are here to offer straightforward legal advice, to help you to seek the resolution that you deserve.
