However well you think you know the rules of the road, it pays to remind yourself of why it’s important to stay alert when you’re on the move. In 2017, there were more than 175,000 road traffic accidents reported in the UK, according to government figures.


And, while some road accidents are unavoidable, the majority can be prevented.

That’s why we created #StayRoadSafe – a road safety campaign for everyone, no matter how they’re getting to their destination.

Every mode of transport has its own particular set of rules and guidelines, which we’ve made easy to understand with clear infographics and fact sheets. That way, you’ll know how best to avoid accidents, however you choose to get there.

We’ve also included top tips on staying safe and staying seen by other road users if you’re in a car, on a motorbike, cycling or if you’re going by foot.

Should you be injured on the roads, we’re here to support you through a road accident injury claim. From cuts and bruises to more serious injuries, our specialists understand the nuances of every kind of road accident and have supported thousands of road users involved in accidents.

Our lawyers have secured tens of millions of pounds in compensation for our clients and put them in contact with high-quality support groups and rehabilitation services to aid their recovery. We also support the aims of charities like RoadPeace and Brake, and work to prove ethical support to victims of serious and life-changing road collisions.
