    Accident repairs

    Have you been involved in an accident on the roads recently? Maybe your vehicle was damaged due to someone else’s negligence and you needed some urgent accident repairs. If you were also injured in the accident, you are probably thinking of claiming compensation.

    So, what are the eligibility requirements for making claims for personal injury compensation?

    • An accident within the last three years: Your accident must have taken place within three years of the start date of your claim. This timescale can sometimes be extended, for example if a child has been involved.
    • A non-fault accident: The accident needs to have happened because of someone else’s negligence, and you must not have been at fault.
    • Injuries medically treated: Your injuries must have been medically treated at the time of the accident or soon afterwards.

    Accident repairs and claims for compensation

    If your vehicle was badly damaged, you’ll probably have needed to get it repaired fairly quickly, but when it comes to claiming compensation, the three-year limit for claiming can seem like a long time.

    We always advise innocent accident victims to start finding out about claiming well before this time is up, however, because there is a lot to take in and understand about how the system works.

    Claiming with Accident Advice Helpline

    Making a claim with an established law firm such as ours is a good idea, as you have access to previous experience of claiming. Accident Advice Helpline have a full team of personal injury experts to help you make your claim and offer no-win, no-fee funding.

    Open Claim Calculator

    Our solicitors like to process claims over the phone if they can, as it often means that our customers don’t need to attend court. When we set up in business in 2000, one of our main aims was to offer simplified systems that helped our customers, and this is one such system that reduces the stress of claiming.

    How to start a claim

    If you look for the 30-second test on our website, you’ll be able to get an estimate of the potential compensation. This helps many of our customers to make an informed decision about claiming and provides an idea of the level of compensation received by other customers who suffered in similar circumstances.

    If you decide to continue with a claim, we will put you in touch with one of our specialist solicitors who will negotiate on your behalf. Following a non-fault road traffic accident, having accident repairs to the vehicle is often the first consideration that people make. Claiming compensation for any injuries sustained takes a little more thought, but we can help guide you through the system so that everything becomes clear.
