    Thanks for the reply and the offer of assistance, I have spoken to Leigh Day and they seem very helpful and responsive. If I have an issues I'll give you a shout, thanks again!

    That's pretty good, heard nightmares of people chasing stuff for 2+ years! Guess it's all case dependant; lack of evidence, rebuttals, shitty insurers etc.

    Sadly not a member of any of the above.

    Leigh Day sound like a strong contender as others have mentioned them before. The drivers insurers gave the impression it'd all be fairly prompt as liability had been accepted and the dash cam footage backs it all up. In what sort of timescale did they sort your scenario out?

    Thanks for the tips!

    Hello all, I UTFS read some other threads and dredged this one, have given them a read through and am looking to see if anyone has any recent experiences and that the all the positive reviews in here still stand true.

    Was recently hit by a car that pulled out on to a roundabout whilst I had right of way. Driver accepted liability (driver submitted dash-cam footage showing they're at fault) and the drivers insurance has been pretty helpful and have said they will help with property claims (helmet, clothing etc.)

    Here's the but... although I sustained new injuries from the accident because it has impacted on an existing back injury it brings 'a new level of complexity' and they have said that I need to get my own representation and said in their experience it's best to go with a 'cycle injury specific solicitor'. If it was just new injuries they would have handled it in house but there you go!

    So hive mind - are there any go to people you'd recommend?

    Did you go for a long or an extra long?
