With the high number of cars on the roads it is almost inevitable that you will either witness or be involved in a car collision at some point in your life. If you have been involved in a road accident that was not your fault, and you suffered injuries in the accident, you may be thinking about claiming compensation.
Whether the car collision was caused by excess speed, adverse weather conditions, or a poorly maintained road, the after-effects of an accident such as this can be long-lasting, both physically and emotionally. Some people fear driving again, and many suffer flashbacks to the time of the crash.
A positive step forward
Claiming compensation for injuries sustained in a car collision can seem like a costly and lengthy process that is be too stressful to undertake. If you make a claim on your own you may need to pay upfront for some of the legal fees, and finding an experienced personal injury solicitor to deal with your claim can be hit and miss.
Choosing to use the services of an advice and compensation provider can make the whole process seem easier, as most compensation providers offer a recommendation for a specialist solicitor on a no win no fee basis.

Many of our customers tell us that it felt like a positive step forward once their claim was underway, and that our caring support was influential in making the decision to get the compensation they deserved.
Your car collision claim
The majority of our personal injury claims are processed over the phone without the need to go to court, but your solicitor may advise that you need to attend one independent medical assessment.
We also advise that you keep your receipts for any travel or parking costs, or any other out-of-pocket expenses that you incur in relation to your claim. These can then be added to the total of the claim by your solicitor.
If any queries come to mind whilst your claim is in progress, or you have any niggling worries, you can call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 and one of our advisers will be able to answer your questions and put your mind at rest. Our support is ongoing during the claims process and we provide regular updates on any developments.
