What if someone is making a ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim against you?
One of the worst things you can probably think of happening after a serious accident you have been involved in, is the other party then making a compensation claim against you, as you were at fault.
This means that not only will you have to deal with any fallout from your accident, including damage to your personal property and any injuries you have suffered, you may also have a huge amount of money being asked of you to pay for the distress and injuries suffered by the other person. If this does happen to you, though, you will have to deal with it, as this is not the sort of thing you can just ignore. Here are some things that you can do.
- Find out more about what you can do. If you were definitely at fault for the accident that you are being sued for, there may be very little that you can do to stop the claim going through. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to sit back and let it happen. Find legal representation of your own and find out what you can do about the situation.
- Talk to them direct. If you know the person that is making a claim against you personally, it might be worth your while to chat to them one on one and find out whether they would be willing to drop the claim if you could offer them a settlement upfront, or reach some other kind of understanding.
- Stay calm. The worst possible thing you can do is panic, as then you may behave in a way that is actually likely to cause more trouble or leave you with bigger problems than before. try to be calm and patient, and take each day as it comes.
- Find out how you can pay. If you are sure that this claim will be successful, you should speak to a lawyer about how you are going to pay out this amount, whether you can use insurance and so on. Road traffic accidents are covered by your motor insurance, including the compensation a third party may claim.
