FAQs

How much can i claim?

Each car accident compensation case is different, and so the amount you can claim will vary depending on your circumstances. The final compensation figure will depend on the seriousness of the accident, the level of liability involved, and the short and long-term effects it has on you and the other parties.

Car accident compensation tends to be split into two categories: general damages and special damages:

  • General damages are awarded based on the pain you experienced because of your injuries and the changes you’ll have to adapt to and endure as a result of the accident (including how it may affect your career and your relationships).
  • Special damages are designed to cover the extra expenses you have had to pay because of the accident, and any related costs that might arise in the future. This can include loss of earnings, medical treatment, and damage to your car and other property.
  • Our car accident solicitors will be able to give you an idea of how much you may be entitled to, based on their experience and other cases that have similar circumstances.

    How do I start my claim for compensation?

    Call our team for free advice today or use our contact form to request a call back. One of our car accident lawyers will conduct a free, no obligation consultation to discuss your individual circumstances.

    If we believe you have a claim, we’ll handle every step of the process and help you achieve the result you deserve.

    Time limits do apply to road traffic accident claims – usually you have three years from the date of the accident to submit your claim, so get in touch with us as soon as possible to start the process.

    What's the cost of making an accident claim?

    There’s absolutely no financial risk involved, so it pays to speak with one of our experts.

    We run all cases on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you don’t have to pay a penny to get the legal representation you need. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages, as a contribution to costs.

    Can I claim compensation for an accident that was my fault?

    The circumstances of each accident will vary, and you may be able to claim compensation if you were only partly to blame for the collision or if you caused an accident due to something outside of your control, such as poor road conditions. If you weren’t wearing a seatbelt during an accident that someone else caused and this resulted in injuries, you may also be entitled to some compensation.

    Keep in mind that the amount you receive will take liability into consideration, and so if you’re partly to blame you will likely only be able to claim a lower amount, compared to instances where you were not at all at fault. Our expert car accident lawyers will review your individual situation and advise on the best steps to take next.
