Road Accident Compensation
If you are thinking of claiming road accident compensation for injuries suffered through no fault of your own, you may be wondering if starting a claim is the best way forward. Many accident victims feel that they deserve justice, but know that taking legal action is a big step, so we have put together a short guide on what happens when you make a claim.
Where to start
The first step is to establish whether you are eligible to make a claim for road accident compensation. There are certain criteria that have to be met:
- The accident needs to have happened within the last 3 years
- It should not have been your fault
- You must have received medical treatment for your injuries following the accident
If all of the above apply to you, the next thing to do is give us a call on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
