Car accident settlement

upset driver after car crash

Being injured in a car accident can be a stressful time for you and your family, whether you have been injured as a pedestrian, a passenger in a vehicle or as a driver. 90% of car accidents are caused by driver error, but what if the error was completely the fault of the other driver? If somebody else’s negligence has left you injured, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation and be awarded a car accident settlement as compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. But there’s a three-year time limit to make a claim, so make sure you act quickly after your accident.

What caused your car accident?

There are a number of different things which could cause a car accident. If somebody else is driving dangerously, they could be doing any of the following:

  • Being distracted at the wheel – this could include using a mobile phone, eating or applying make-up whilst driving
  • A car that’s not roadworthy or has no MOT
  • Speeding in a built-up area
  • Overtaking or pulling out without checking mirrors
  • Tailgating, particularly in wet or icy weather
  • Driving aggressively

If somebody else is responsible for your accident and you have suffered injuries, however minor, you could make a personal injury claim. For example, if you’ve suffered whiplash, you could be eligible for a car accident settlement, if your claim is successful. Many people make the mistake of thinking you can only claim compensation if you have suffered severe injuries, but that’s not the case. If you’re unsure whether you have a viable claim, you can always call Accident Advice Helpline to find out.
