Road Traffic Collisions

Have you been involved in a Road Traffic Collision and need help with a claim or repairs?

A road traffic collision is stressful enough without having to deal with the resulting paperwork, repairs and car hire, in order to get you back on the road. With the help of Contac Claims, who are a local and experienced accident assistance service, we put you, the client, at the heart of the service. We will arrange car hire, repairs and all the services you need.

Too often road traffic collisions accidents are managed by insurance companies who will send you to a claims management company that will not always put your interests first.  You can easily find yourself in Court fighting over a car hire claim when your personal injury claim could have been settled months sooner.

With Robert G Sinclair and Company solicitors and Contac Claims, we make legal matters concering road traffic accidents clear and ensure that your interests are our priority.

If you have been involved in an accident recently.

Contact Mairead O’Boyle any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 028 90231770 or complete the enquiry form and we will call you back.
