George Ide LLP is recognised as a leader in personal injury law across the South of England and our tenacious, respected and knowledgeable experts will do everything they can to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve as a motorcyclist caught up in a road traffic accident.
Most motorcyclists are skilled and responsible road users, yet they are also extremely vulnerable and while motorbike riders account for only a small proportion of road traffic they account for a disproportionately large number of casualties.
Why come to us for personal injury advice?
We have acted in many complex, high-value motorcyclist claims and take pride in our ability to ensure accident victims’ financial and healthcare needs are met at all stages of their claims process.
Our wealth of experience gives us depth and breadth of understanding so, because we are familiar with many of the issues specific to motorcycles and their riders, we are able to investigate every aspect of the incidents that have affected our clients, leaving no stone unturned – literally.
We regularly work with accident reconstruction experts whose experience and knowledge of motorcycle dynamics can be invaluable in unravelling as accurately as possible the exact circumstances and in distinguishing between the level of noise a bike makes and the speed at which it was travelling at the time of the incident.
Always on Your Side
As an approachable, ethical, and client-focussed full-service legal firm, we are committed to providing genuine injury claimants with an honest, effective and efficient comprehensive accident claim service – in jargon-free plain English.
Whether you have suffered a relatively minor soft tissue injury or a more serious head, limb or spinal injury, we will do everything we can to ensure you receive maximum compensation, not only to pay for your most appropriate treatment, therapies and rehabilitation but also to protect your financial security, helping you face the future with confidence.
When appropriate, our independent healthcare-trained case managers evaluate the post-accident care you need and provide our expert injury claims lawyers with all the information they need to negotiate on your behalf for adequate funding to be provided on an appropriate timescale – so you can begin treatment as soon as possible.
We can also help you manage your return to work, keeping your employer appropriately informed and arranging funding for any rehabilitation or retraining that may be required.
We deal with a significant number of substantial claims each year, securing compensation settlements worth millions of pounds for our road traffic accident clients.
We are highly respected, both by clients and by our professional peers – our personal injury team is highly-rated (Band Two) in Chambers and Partners’ prestigious directory of UK legal practitioners, and we hold comprehensive Law Society accreditation for top-level quality control, reflecting our commitment to the highest standards of client service.
We are proud to be associated with Headway Sussex, the local branch of the UK’s leading acquired brain injury charity and George Ide LLP is a founder member of the Motor Accident Solicitors’ Society (MASS), an organisation set up in 1991 to promote and protect the interests of road accident victims. We are also a Headway accredited firm, with a Headway accredited lawyer. Our personal injury department comprises widely-respected experienced lawyers including an Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) accredited Senior Litigator and a certified member of the Law Society’s personal injury panel
Our dedicated personal injury claims department is based in Chichester, West Sussex, easily reached from Brighton, Portsmouth, Southampton, Guildford and most of Hampshire, West Sussex, Surrey and London. But if for any reason you are unable to come to us or perhaps you live further afield, we will gladly travel to visit you wherever you are in the UK – and we guarantee you the same high professional standards of quality legal care.

George Ide LLP. We’re on your side
I was involved in a traffic accident as a pedestrian, being hit by a car. My family were recommended to George Ide regarding personal injury, and what a great choice this turned out to be. Words can’t express how thankful and grateful I am for the service and support that I received from everyone at George Ide. My case was handled by Paul Fretwell with the help of Karen Jenkins, and the genuine kindness, care, and professionalism that they provided throughout my claim from start to finish was second to none. The experience of Paul and his team really shone through, and this was obvious from the very start when I first met Paul for an initial chat at home. The thoroughness and dedication to getting me the best possible outcome was clear throughout. Paul fought to the nail making sure that no stone was unturned, this allowing me to feel less anxious and to be able to concentrate on getting physically and mentally better. For anyone that goes through a traumatic event, the support from the people around you is key, Paul and his team were no exception to this, and I felt that I had a true friend and ally on my side. George Ide and Paul should be the first port of call to someone in need of a personal injury solicitor, I can’t recommend them enough!Alex Richardson
Ian Oliver and Paul Lewis of George Ide Solicitors, and their appointed barrister, were outstanding in helping us defend an HMO licensing prosecution by a local authority. This was a complex matter which should never have been taken to trial by the local authority. However, thanks to the care, knowledge and tenacity shown by George Ide, the correct judgment was given. Thanks again for guiding us through this stressful experience.Ian Wiggett, Pace Property, Lettings & Management Ltd.
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for all you have done for us regarding our daughter’s burn. You made the process a lot less scary for her so thank you for that and we are pleased with the outcome. Your professionalism and care for our daughter throughout was very much appreciated by us all.Beth Huxley
Thank you for all your effort and excellent advice and work in this matter. It’s very much appreciated and I will certainly use you and your firm again in the future should I require legal services.Roger Koep
I am extremely happy with the outcome and the break down that you have provided. I would just like to say to you and your team my deepest thanks for the hard work and dedication you have put into my case and I. am extremely happy with results. Kind regardsDamon
Thank you very much for your email. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your advice and perseverance, especially with regards to the final settlement. Both myself and my wife are so pleased that this matter is finished! We wish you all the best for the future. Kind regards,Garry
On a personal note : Thanks for everything you have done, some may say you are just doing your job but the support you offered both in the structure you set up to get me fit again, as well as the emotional counsel you gave got me through one of the most difficult and frightening situations I had dealt with to date. I will certainly be highly recommending you to anyone else that needs such a service. You are a great asset to the firm and hope they know that!Simon Horn
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for guiding and supporting my friends through to this conclusion over the last 3 years. The early days were incredibly tough for them as you know and your calm reassuring presence has been one of the main reasons they were able to cope, especially back then. You’ll have learnt that R is a very tough and determined character, but I know they’d have struggled without your help.
Living abroad and unable to help them as much as I would have liked, it’s been so reassuring to continually hear how confident they’ve been in your ability to resolve this for them, right from the word go. I know I was very happy in my own mind that they’d got the right person on their side, after I spoke to you on the phone.
So, thank you again for all the time and effort you’ve put into getting them this result… for always being available to speak to them, even when you were supposed to be on holiday, for steering them through the hardest times and the quagmire of the courts. You’ve made such a difference for them and seeing R getting on with life with such a positive attitude that I’m not sure I would have been able to replicate, had it happened to me; is extremely satisfying as well as inspirational.Rich J
Dear Mr Lewis. First of all I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team about the hard work, time and money which you spent to deal with my claim. I agree with you that the settlement is reasonable enough and I know that you’ve did your best to get it.Plamen Krastev
I have received the final settlement cheque and I am happy with this. Thanks again for your services. You’ve been excellent in every way. I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks.Fazal Mahmood Chishty
My daughter and I are extremely lucky to be alive after an awful road traffic accident on the M1 motorway 3 years ago. I had some severe injuries and fortunately I’ve recovered very well (although not without some life altering effects). My good fortune continued when I engaged George Ide solicitors to help with a personal injury claim a few weeks after I was released from hospital after almost 2 months.My dealings with the company have been outstanding in terms of professionalism, thoroughness and sensitivity. I feel that partner Paul Fretwell and his very capable team have worked extremely hard on my case. They achieved a successful and stress-free outcome for which I’m very grateful. I am most appreciative of the kindness and support shown to me throughout the time Paul and his colleagues advised, guided and helped me through what could have been a much more traumatic process without them. I would not hesitate in recommending George Ide solicitors to anyone who needs assistance with a personal injury claim. Paul Fretwell in particular is someone I have great confidence in and his diligence is exemplary. Many thanks once again Paul!See Review
I have worked with George Ide LLP for many years, initially as a support worker but now as a Registered Manager. I have found their brain injury
team, more specifically Paul Fretwell, to be highly efficient, supportive and effective when working alongside me with a very challenging group of clients. Paul and the team at George Ide LLP have secured settlements ranging from £1-6 million and beyond, ensuring financial security and peace of mind for life for the clients and their families.
I have worked closely over many years with Ursula Watt and Stephen Shine in George Ide LLP’s Court of Protection team. I am always impressed by how adaptable and attentive they are in looking after their brain-injured clients who often display challenging behaviour. They are able to communicate in a way our clients understand and work in a very person centered way. They are firm but fair and always have the clients’ best interests at heart. Karl Thompson.
