At Burt & Davies we understand that you are suddenly in unfamiliar territory when you suffer injury. You are often unable to return to work. Unable to participate in your normal daily activities. The things that you once took for granted become almost insurmountable hurdles. We understand that these things not only affect you but also those closest to you. We understand that a transport accident can change your life. Add to that the fact that you are suddenly having to deal with an insurer, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), in relation to your TAC claim.
Our role at BURT & DAVIES is to inform you. Also to deal with any uncertainty you may have. We seek to reduce your stress by guiding you through the maze that is the Transport Accident Scheme. We help you fight the legal battles against the TAC. This assists you to focus primarily on your rehabilitation and recovery.
Whilst compensation will never fully restore you to the position that you were in prior to being injured it can assist in reducing the financial burden. We will assist you to maximise your TAC compensation entitlements. The aim is to do this in the earliest time frames possible whilst taking all relevant factors into account.
To achieve this result alternative dispute resolution or negotiation with the TAC will be utilised wherever possible. With proper advice the vast majority of cases are resolved without Court action. Court action will only ever be taken where negotiation has been unsuccessful and where you authorise proceedings to be issued on your behalf. In such cases, Court action will be vigorously pursued on your behalf.
Our role is one of partnership with you.
