How will I know if I can make a claim for my injuries?
If you have been in an accident, you may be able to make a claim for compensation provided you are not the party at fault. This means that if the negligence of another motorist has caused the accident, you could be within your rights to make a claim.
How long should I wait to make a claim?
There is no minimum amount of time to wait after an accident to seek compensation – you can do so whenever you feel able. However, there is a maximum time limit imposed by the government. You have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim for compensation, after which your statute of limitations expires.
How much will I get in compensation for a car accident claim in North Ayrshire?
The amount awarded will depend on many things. An Accident Advice Helpline adviser will analyse your case taking into consideration things such as the extent of the injuries, whether or not you will face permanent disability or inconvenience because of them, how much you have had to pay out of pocket for things like medical care, how much you have lost in earnings and more. You can obtain a quick quote yourself online using our thirty-seconds claims calculator, or call our helpline to have a confidential discussion.
What does “no win, no fee” mean?
The term no win, no fee refers to a conditional payment agreement under which all claims are accepted. There is no deposit necessary, and nothing at all payable upfront to get started when it comes to making car accident claims in North Ayrshire. This is to ensure our services remain affordable in the wake of an accident, and to demonstrate our commitment to winning the cases we undertake.
