Claiming after a car crash in Derbyshire
If you have suffered injuries in a car crash in Derbyshire and have had to seek medical treatment as a result, and if you think someone else was to blame for the accident, then you may well be entitled to claim compensation. Your first step should be to find out for certain whether you are eligible. Generally speaking:
- Your accident must have happened within the last three years;
- You must have received medical attention for your injuries, whether in the short term or on an ongoing basis; and
- Someone else must have acted negligently or carelessly, or committed a criminal act which caused the accident.
However, personal injury law can be complicated, and so it is always worth seeking advice.

How much will it cost to claim after a car crash in Derbyshire?
The good news is that we do not charge you any money to set your claim in motion. We will appoint a specialist solicitor with experience in handling claims after road traffic accidents. And there is no charge for this either. Even if your case is unsuccessful, you will not be expected to pay for our services, because all our solicitors operate on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
How much compensation will I get?
While we will give you an estimate of the amount you will receive, we cannot guarantee a particular amount. This is because everyone’s accident – and everyone’s injuries will be different. The sum you are awarded will be calculated on the basis of how your injuries have adversely affected your day to day routine. The law’s intention is to restore your life, as far as possible, to the way it was before the accident happened.
What we can say is that the solicitor who acts for you will aim to get you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to. You may also receive money for some of the financial costs of your accident, such as loss of earnings, prescription charges, travel costs, childcare and any home help you have needed.
