Credit hire solicitors

At Stephensons we understand both the perspective of the credit hire company (CHC) and the innocent motor accident victim. For the CHC, providing the victim with a vehicle so they can continue their day-to-day lives is paramount but we also understand that cash flow and expertise in recovering credit hire charges are equally as important factors. 

For the victim of the accident, we understand that this is a very difficult time as there will be multiple companies vying for their attention all offering to help. Stephensons have a wealth of experience in this area and are able to truly help.

In this ever-evolving area of law we are committed to providing a high quality expert service both to the victim and the CHC, and to look for opportunities to settle cases for the correct figure at an early stage. We have a dedicated team who work with numerous first tier Association of British Insurer subscribers to provide our expertise and a robust approach towards recovery of reasonable credit hire charges in every case we receive.

Our experience

Our credit hire team is headed by senior associate, Barry Sutton and he is joined by associate, Steven Jones who, together with their team of litigation executives and paralegals, have a proven track record for service and recovery and have experience across the spectrum of credit hire regarding niche vehicles such as coaches and HGV’s to taxi vehicles, and from standard vehicles to prestige vehicles.

The team at Stephensons provide valuable and reliable advice at the outset of the case and as it progresses in the small claim track/fast track/multi track.

We are well versed in the complexities of this area of law and are equipped to rebut any erroneous position adopted by the defendant during litigation. We sit on The CHO limited executive committee and provide advice on strategic issues with the credit hire organisations for whom we are retained together with pertinent guidance on procedure and regulatory matters. 

If you require credit hire recovery services, our highly specialised and dedicated team are always ready to discuss potential cases prior to litigation and are happy to arrange a meeting to initially discuss how we can better assist your needs.
