Every year, thousands of people are involved in car accidents. In fact, over 50,000 people are injured or killed in accidents on UK roads each year. Some people just assume that all car accidents are the same but this is not actually true. Car accidents can be categorised as an injury claim car accident or a non-injury claim car accident. If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault it is likely that it is an injury claim car accident. Find out some important facts about injury claim car accidents below.
Fact 1: You can claim money (compensation) for an injury claim car accident
You can claim compensation for the injuries that you suffered in the accident and for expenses that you have incurred as a result of your injuries. These expenses could, for example, be loss of wages; costs of travel and costs of buying in extra help. They can also be for loss of earnings.
Fact 2: The injury claim car accident procedure does not have to be stressful or complicated
Contact the friendly professional advisers at a claims management company like Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible so that they can guide you through the process. Even if you were injured a while ago it is likely that you can still claim. You can make a claim for car accidents that happened up to three years ago. You will be put in touch with one of the national network of many legal partners who has expertise in handling your type of claim. You do not need to worry about expensive legal fees because the legal partners work on a no win, no fee* basis. If your case is not successful you do not pay a thing. What’s more, if you win, your legal fees can be recovered from the losing side.
Fact 3: It is easy to spot the best claims management company to deal with your injury claim car accident
The best claims management companies are endorsed by a consumer champion and are available to take your call whenever you call. Accident Advice Helpline is available 24/7 and is backed by TV personality Esther Rantzen. They also have a 30 second test to help them to work out whether your claim is likely to be successful.

Fact 4: Each injury claim car accident is different
Most claims for injury accidents can be dealt with over the telephone and very few cases actually end up in court. However, each case is different and no-one can guarantee the exact amount of money that you will get or the amount of time that it will take to settle your claim. You may need to attend one appointment with a doctor for a medical assessment.
