An auto car accident, like any other type of accident, can leave you with physical and emotional scars. When you sustain severe injuries in an accident, you will find yourself having to pay out for a range of expenses, including treatment and travel costs – all because of someone else’s carelessness. It is for this reason that you may wish to file a car accident claim – a legally binding formal attempt to receive compensation for the pain and suffering caused by an accident for which someone else was to blame.
Why would I wish to file an auto car accident claim?
If you have endured pain and suffering because of someone else’s negligence, you are legally entitled to file a claim for compensation. Expenses such as medical treatments, travel costs and loss of income can all be covered in full by a successful auto car accident compensation claim.
How much compensation will I receive?
The amount of compensation awarded to you will depend on the injuries you have sustained and the financial losses you have incurred. To receive an instant estimate of the value of your claim, use our 30-second claims calculator.
How long do I have to start a claim for compensation?
The general rule is that you must begin legal proceedings within three years of the date of your accident. However, there are many exceptions to this rule, depending on your age and mental capacity. If you are unsure about whether you are able to make a claim, you should call Accident Advice Helpline to receive advice tailored to your individual circumstances on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
