Help with Seeking Compensation – RoadPeace Legal Panel
The RoadPeace Legal Panel aims to help and support people bereaved or seriously injured in a road collision by enabling them access to high quality legal advice and justice, including fair compensation.
The Legal Panel is made up of leading specialist personal injury law firms. Panel members’ sign up to an agreed set of qualifying criteria as a quality standard and sign of their commitment to road crash victims.
RoadPeace legal panel members make an annual charitable donation of £5,000 to RoadPeace to support our work.
RoadPeace works with APIL, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, who have produced a video highlighting the importance of using a specialist personal injury lawyer when making a claim for civil compensation.
