    What is the average payout for a car accident

    Being involved in an accident, especially when it is not your fault, is a traumatic and upsetting experience. When it comes to financial compensation, Accident Advice Helpline are the people best placed to fight for your compensation on a no-win, no-fee basis. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can take care of many of the practicalities, but there are many things which you can do to help yourself, too.


    In order to win any claim for compensation which may be due after an accident, Accident Advice Helpline have to prove that the other driver was in some way negligent. Sometimes this negligence is very obvious, such as if the other driver was speeding, talking on their mobile phone or following your car too closely. If you think that any of these circumstances may apply after you have a crash, take notes or photographs showing the positions of the cars and any damage, and note any adverse weather conditions, such as ice or snow.

    Calculating compensation

    It can be very difficult to provide a figure for an average payout for a car accident, as each award will vary depending on the exact circumstances, so you need to speak to the experts at Accident Advice Helpline for guidance. Our many years of experience in winning similar cases enables us to quickly assess the level of compensation which may be due to you.

    Once a claim is underway, we will also be able to give you advice on when to accept or reject any offer made by the other side’s insurance company. The average payout for a car accident will increase with the severity of the injury, how badly the injury has affected your life and how long you are expected to suffer the consequences.

    Stress and worry

    Taking legal action against a third party, even if it is someone you don’t know, is a daunting and stressful process. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we completely understand the worry and stress associated with a compensation case and are here to help and support you every step of the way. The no-win, no-fee structure of payment takes away the worry of paying upfront for a case you might not win and dealing with the professionals gives you peace of mind about the whole process. Don’t worry about the average payout for a car accident; we will help you claim the maximum settlement for your circumstances.
