Who was at fault for your Exeter car accident?
In order to make a claim, the negligence of another party must have caused it, and you should be able to prove that you were in no way at fault. This can be through witness statements, official documentation and photographic evidence. If for example, you were stationary at a red light and the driver of the car behind failed to stop, you could claim compensation as their negligence caused the accident.
Is there a time limit?
You have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a compensation claim.
How much could I receive?
The amount awarded will depend on a number of factors, such as whether or not the injuries sustained have compromised your ability to earn income, if you’ve had to pay for medical treatment out of pocket, and if you’ve had to pay for the travel associated with this treatment and so forth. To find out how much you could be entitled to receive, fill in our online claims calculator to get a quick, no-obligation quote, or call our helpline to discuss your case with a claims adviser. Our team of compassionate experts will be able to analyse the details surrounding your case and provide an honest assessment, all with absolutely no obligation to commit to taking legal action.
How much does it cost?
In order to make it affordable to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline works on a no win, no fee basis. Not only does this conditional fee agreement mean you don’t have to pay anything upfront, it demonstrates our commitment to winning every case we undertake.
Will I have to go to court for my Exeter car accident claim?
You don’t necessarily have to attend a hearing in order to receive compensation. In some cases, your solicitors can reach an out of court settlement, meaning you don’t have to face the negligent driver and suffer emotionally, and can often receive your payout quicker.
