You may be surprised to know that you can make a car crash compensation claim up to three years after an accident. This benefits people who were too traumatised by the event to even consider taking legal action at the time.
If this applies to you, it could have been that you were trying to cope with your injuries, recovering psychologically, or just trying to get through a day’s work in pain from the lasting effects your injuries. If you want to find out whether or not you still have a legitimate claim, we make it easy for you. You can either:
- Take the 30-second test on our website – you will need to input a few basic details about your accident and the nature of your injuries. In addition to telling you if your claim is still valid, the results will provide an estimate of the amount of compensation you might receive.
- Call our free helpline to discuss your accident with one of our specially-trained advisers. They will provide the same information, and guide you through the claims process in more detail if you think you might want to make a claim.
