Road Traffic Accidents

If you’ve been in an accident in the Tees Valley area, it’s your right to claim against the person at fault.

Whether you are a driver or a passenger, being involved in a road traffic accident (RTA) can be traumatic. It’s not always easy to start the process of making a claim when your mind is so preoccupied with the accident itself. However, we are here to support you and make it as simple as we possibly can.

Many people will call their insurance company straight after they have a road traffic accident. However, a better first call to make would be to a specialist personal injury solicitor. This will ensure your case is taken seriously and professionally from the outset, with no possibility of conflicts of interest when it comes to insurance companies.

When you speak to Middlesbrough based Atha & Co, you can rest assured you will get a thorough, personal service and that we will fight to get you the maximum compensation you deserve. Our solicitors get to know you and learn about your case, digging deep to ensure no stone is left unturned. We discuss everything from the physical and psychological effects of your accident to the various financial losses which may have also occurred. In summary, we do whatever it takes to support you and get you the most positive outcome.

How We Can Help You

At Atha & Co, your claim will be dealt with from beginning to end by a qualified solicitor who is an expert in their field. They will have the knowledge and experience to ensure you get the maximum compensation, together with the best possible rehabilitation that allows you to recover and move on from even the most devastating and traumatic of accidents. We do not delegate any part of your claim to unqualified staff, and your claim is our priority.
