Frequently asked questions about making car accident claims
How do I start a claim for compensation?
All you have to do is phone our 24-hour helpline, and one of our friendly staff will let you know if you are eligible to make a claim, guide you through the process, and then put you in touch with the most appropriate personal injury lawyer for you.
Can I claim for a car accident that was not my fault?
Many people who have been involved in car accidents claim compensation for their injuries. Injuries can be severe and long-term as the result of a car accident, and the compensation is often used for ongoing medical treatment, or to replace lost earnings.
How much will it cost me to make a claim?
It costs you nothing to start a claim, and as all our legal partners work on a no win no fee basis, your solicitor’s fees can be claimed back from the other side.
Do people who have been involved in car accidents claim compensation for whiplash?
Yes, many people successfully claim for whiplash injuries. This type of injury is not always obvious immediately after the accident, but if you received medical attention soon afterwards, you should be able to make a claim.
How long will it take to process my claim?
The length of time it takes to deal with a claim varies greatly, depending on the circumstances and complexities of the accident. As each case is different it is impossible to be certain, but you can be sure that we will manage your case proactively and efficiently.
Will your staff put pressure on me to start a claim for compensation?
Former customers who have been involved in car accidents claim that our staff are professional, caring and supportive. They are trained to deal with the needs of accident victims, and they fully understand that you do not want to be pressured into taking legal action, if you are not sure that it is the best course of action for you.
Being involved in a car accident can leave physical and emotional scars which affect the way you live your life in the long-term. By claiming compensation for your injuries you can take the first step towards taking control, and get your life back on track.
