Hundreds of thousands of drivers, passengers and pedestrians are involved in a road traffic accident every year. Many suffer from minor to severe injuries, sometimes to the detriment of their general health and their day-to-day lifestyle.
Does a car accident mean that you deserve compensation?
In some cases, yes – if you have suffered from harm, through absolutely no fault of your own, there is a good chance that you will be entitled to compensation.
It is important to remember that if you are to blame at all for the road traffic collision, you will be unable to claim for compensation. It is also imperative that an accurate and honest account of the road traffic accident is given. Any dishonestly will lead to an invalid claim, and possibly fees.
How to find out if you are entitled to compensation
Accident Advice Helpline offers an online compensation calculator, which takes just half a minute to complete. This will let you know straight away if you are eligible to claim for compensation.
Across most cases, claimants are typically eligible if they have suffered injuries because of a road traffic accident, at no fault of their own, in the last three years.
How to process my car crash claim
Once you have established that you meet the specified criteria, give Accident Advice Helpline a call. It may be that you simply want to discuss the details of your claim further – this is fine, their 24/7 helpline offers advice with no obligation at all to proceed with the case.
Should you decide to go ahead, however, Accident Advice Helpline will ensure that your car collision claim is managed as efficiently as possible. Often claims can be processed over the phone, and there is usually no need for the claimant to attend court.
The cost of your car crash claim
Seeking the help of Accident Advice Helpline guarantees that unless your case is successful you will not have to pay solicitor fees. All of the law firm’s partners operate on a no win, no fee* basis, to make sure that until your claim pays out, you aren’t landed with any solicitor fees.
The bottom line – if you are injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, and it occurred in the last three years, it is likely that you deserve compensation.
