    Car crash not my fault – what can I do?


    There is not always someone to blame for a car crash, but more often than not, someone is at fault. Whether it is a drink driver or whether it is someone talking on their mobile phone while on the road someone may have been negligent. If so, you have a right to pursue them for a monetary award to ease any financial difficulties you may have as a result of their negligence. Here’s what you can do next.

    Car crash not my fault: the 30-second test

    Our 30-second compensation calculator is free to use and will give you an estimate of how much money you could receive if a car crash was not your fault. All you need to do is fill in a quick form which will ask you whether you were at fault and whether your injury occurred within the last three years. This is to make it easier when recollecting exactly what happened the day of your car crash. Next, fill out your name and telephone number and wait for our calculator to do the work for you.

    Talk with us

    Even if you think your case may not be worth pursuing, we can help you make this decision. Our Freephone line is available 24/7; just leave a message after working hours and we will get back to you.
