If you have sustained injuries as the result of a car accident that was not your fault, you may be thinking of claiming compensation. It can be difficult to decide whether this is the right step to take, however, as taking legal action is a stressful and complicated process. You probably think that if only you could get an idea of how much compensation you could receive if you won a claim, then it would be easier to make a decision on whether to proceed.
The good news is that Accident Advice Helpline has developed a car crash claim calculator, also called the 30-second test, to enable people to find out roughly how much compensation they could receive. The way it works is simple – the estimated figure is based on previous cases we have dealt with that are similar to yours, so if for example you have suffered a whiplash injury, you input this into the calculator along with other basic details of your accident, and the results are returned immediately.
Our car crash claim calculator
We deal with thousands of personal injury cases every year, so the estimate given is a good guide on which to base your decision. You can either take the test via our website, or phone our 24-hour helpline and one of our friendly advisers will ask you the questions and give you the estimate. One of the advantages of speaking to an adviser is that they can tell you more about the process of actually claiming compensation, giving you further information which will help you decide whether this is the right course of action.
When you speak to our advisers, you will be under no obligation to continue with a claim at any stage, and there will be no pressure put on you to pursue a claim for compensation if you are not sure. If you do decide to start a claim after using the car crash claim calculator, we will put you in touch with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
