    Car Insurance After Accident


    If you have been involved in a road accident within the last 3 years, we may be able to help you claim car insurance after accident compensation.

    We help innocent victims of many different types of accident to claim compensation, but road traffic accidents are among the most common that we deal with.

    We have put together a series of frequently asked questions to help you decide whether claiming compensation is the right course of action for you.

    What are the criteria for making a claim?

    In order to make a car insurance after accident compensation claim, there are 3 main criteria:

    • The accident should have happened within the last 3 years
    • It must not have been your fault
    • You should have received medical treatment for your injuries following the accident

    How much does it cost to make a claim?

    As we work on a no win, no fee basis, it does not cost you anything to start a claim for compensation, and if you win your case you can claim your solicitor’s fees back from the other side.

    How long will it take to claim car insurance after accident compensation?

    It is not possible to say exactly how long your claim will take to be finalised, as it depends on many factors, such as the circumstances of your accident and the complexities involved.

    However, you can be assured that we will endeavour to process your claim as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Why shouldn’t I make a claim on my own?

    It is possible to make a successful claim on your own, but by taking advantage of our experience and our network of personal injury legal partners, we can reduce some of the stress associated with taking legal action.

    Many people say that the most difficult part of making a claim by themselves was finding the right personal injury lawyer, and having confidence in their abilities. After all, the success of your claim lies mainly in the hands of your solicitor.

    How do I contact you once my claim has started?

    You can contact us via the 24-hour helpline as you do before you start a claim. The helpline is open all day, every day, so if you have any concerns once your claim is in progress, our advisers will be able to help you.

    My injuries following the road traffic accident were severe, will I need another medical assessment?

    Yes, you may need one more independent medical assessment as part of your car insurance after accident compensation claim, and if you need to travel for this you can reclaim your out-of-pocket expenses if you keep the receipts.

    We hope that we have answered some of your most pressing questions above, but if you need further information just give us a call, or have a look through our website.

    So for expert legal advice about a possible claim call Accident Advice Helpline today on: 0800 689 0500 from a landline or: 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
