When you’re the victim of a road traffic accident, the last thing you want to learn is that the other vehicle is uninsured, untraceable or foreign-registered. Carol Picthall specialises in bringing justice to these unfortunate traffic accidents.

Livingstons Solicitors MIB Claims Specialists

Here at Livingstons Solicitors, we have a law department specialising in difficult road traffic accident claims; where the other driver is not insured or leaves the scene of the accident. Even in these circumstances, you may still be able to claim compensation, and our Legal Specialist, Carol Picthall, based in our Dalton offices, will work tirelessly to bring you justice and financial compensation where possible.

Carol works closely with the MIB (Motor Insurers’ Bureau) and she is here to help you no matter how challenging your case may be. In a nutshell, Carol Picthall is here to help people involved in road accidents where the normal routes to compensation might not exist or be very difficult to trace. Carol will consider claims for vehicle and property damage as well as injury where compensation cannot be claimed from another source such as an insurance company.

The main groups of people we help are:

• Victims of uninsured drivers
• Victims of untraced drivers, usually referred to as “hit and run” accidents
• UK residents involved in accidents with foreign-registered vehicles, either in the UK or elsewhere in Europe

Please call (01229) 462126 today and ask for Carol Picthall.


Our employment team has received (and continues to receive) a large number of requests for help from companies who would like assistance with interpreting the ongoing changes to the furlough scheme and/or who are advance planning for when the furlough scheme comes to an end.  Some of this planning may involve consideration of short-time working or even redundancies and some involves dealing with specific concerns that returning employees may have about health and safety or about childcare and other obligations.

We have produced a number of factsheets for our employer clients which explain the Government guidance and which provide some practical guidance on how to deal with some of these matters.

If you have any specific queries about ending your furlough scheme or need any assistance with restructuring your business in light of the ongoing economic difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, please e-mail Steve Walker at or Gail Black at

Full details of how we are dealing with Coronavirus are available here.

We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during this difficult time.
