Accident Settlements


Accident settlements are reached when a personal injury claim has been processed, and the courts have agreed on a compensation amount for the claimant.

The amount of compensation received varies on a case-by-case basis and depends upon many factors including:

  • the severity of the injury incurred
  • the area of the body affected
  • the circumstances under which the accident happened

How are accident settlements reached?

If you want to make a claim, you firstly need to ensure you are eligible to receive compensation. If your accident occurred within the past three years and was not your fault, you will likely be able to make a claim. To check, you can use quick online tools such as the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test, which provides you with fast results to give an idea of your eligibility as well as typical compensation amounts, based on the information provided.

To progress your claim in order to reach accident settlements, you will need to speak to a trained advisor who will steer your case to the expert help you need. Most claims can be processed over the telephone, and you will not need to attend court, although you may be required to attend a medical assessment.

Reaching accident settlements following an injury incurred at work

If you have suffered a personal injury at work, you should get in touch with an expert claims company such as Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible.

Work injuries may include:

  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial deafness
  • Product liability
  • An accident at work
  • Industrial injury

If you have suffered as a result of a work injury but are concerned about upsetting your employer, this should not put you off trying to reach a fair accident settlement. Every UK company is required to purchase indemnity insurance by law, meaning that your company is protected from having to pay out on compensation – the insurance company will pay out instead.

What information will I need to provide?

Collecting detailed information about your work injury will work in your favour, proving that your accident was not your fault and therefore increasing your chances of receiving a compensation amount that is fair to your claim. This supporting information may include:

  • Details of any witnesses to your injury or accident
  • A doctor’s report
  • Receipts for treatment or medication, or any other costs incurred as a result of your injury
