About claiming after a car collision in Merton
As with all sorts of personal injury claims road traffic accidents must conform to the following sets of rules. You must have been injured within the last three years, those injuries must have had a significant impact on your quality of life and you must be able to show that the accident was the other driver’s fault.
In the case of road traffic accidents, any compensation – if awarded – will be paid by the culpable driver’s third party car insurance policy. This is what we all have to take out to cover us for any injuries inflicted on other road users. As such, you will not be claiming directly against the driver.
Assessing a claim
Before deciding whether to go ahead, it’s a good idea to speak to an expert. You can do this by calling our free helpline. This is a chance to find out whether or not you have a good chance of winning your case and, if so, how much you might be entitled to claim as compensation. This is only a guide but it does allow you to set realistic expectations before you move forward.
While you’re assessing your claim the other side will be doing the same. They will be deciding if they have a good chance of winning. If not, it’s probable they will attempt to settle out of court. Indeed most of our cases end this way. Settling avoids costs such as court fees so it reduces the financial impact from everyone’s point of view.
However you should be careful. It is highly possible that they may attempt to persuade you to settle for less by making a low initial offer. You should get advice from your lawyer about whether or not their offer is realistic.
This is why we offer a free compensation calculation on our website. This is a chance to tell you roughly how much you might be entitled to claim. Although this is only a rough estimate, it is something you can use to set realistic expectations as you press forward with your claim.
If you come to us, we will make sure you never settle for less. We’ll tell you how much compensation we believe you should be entitled to and we’ll provide all the support you need in making a successful claim.
