Making a car accident insurance settlement can be a daunting process, especially if you have suffered injuries as the result of a traumatic accident that was not your fault. You may feel that it is too much to cope with, but Accident Advice Helpline can offer the support and guidance that will help you obtain compensation and move on with your life.
You may already be aware of the process of making a car accident insurance settlement, but our advisors can help you decide on the best course of action for you, whether that means starting a compensation claim or not. We understand that taking legal action is not right for everyone, and when you ring you will not be put under any pressure to continue, but carefully guided through the process so that you know what it entails.
Starting a car accident insurance settlement
There are 2 ways of finding out whether you have a legitimate claim:
- Call our helpline and speak to one of our knowledgeable advisors
- Take the 30-second test on our website
The 30-second test is basically a claims calculator, and not only confirms your eligibility to claim, but also gives you an estimate of the amount of compensation you could receive.
Car accident insurance settlement solicitors
The next step is to find the best legal representation for your case, and we are able to recommend a specialist solicitor from our nationwide network of legal partners. It may be possible to process your claim over the phone, without the need to visit the solicitor’s office, but if you do need to travel, any out-of-pocket expenses can be reclaimed if you keep your receipts.
It is reassuring to know that all our legal partners work on the basis of no win, no fee**. This allows you to start a car accident insurance settlement claim without paying a penny upfront, and if you win your case you will be able to claim your solicitor’s fees back from the other side. This system negates the financial risk usually associated with taking legal action, and allows vulnerable victims of accident to claim compensation for their injuries.
Many of our customers do not need to attend court in order to receive a settlement for their injuries, but this depends on the complexities of each case, as does the length of time it takes to finalise a claim.
The estimate provided by the 30-second test is not a guaranteed amount, but a figure derived from past results of similar cases to yours. It is designed to give people an idea of the amount they could receive, but as each case is unique, you may receive more or less.
