    Car accident in County Durham


    Claim what you deserve after a car accident in County Durham

    A lot of people are wary about making a claim for compensation after an accident. There is much negative talk in the press and media about ‘compensation culture’, and claimants are often portrayed in a negative light. In fact, it’s estimated that seven in every ten people who are eligible to make a claim after an accident never do so. But the truth is, it is your legal right to seek compensation if you’ve been injured in a car accident in County Durham, or indeed any other kind of accident, if that accident was a direct result of another party acting carelessly, negligently, or criminally.

    The other important criteria to note are that:

    • You must have received medical treatment for your injuries; and
    • The accident must usually have happened within the last three years. This timescale can be extended if you were a minor at the time of the incident.
