Suing insurance company for a car accident


If you’re thinking of suing an insurance company for a car accident, it’s advisable that you waste no time in getting started. Although you have up to three years to make a claim in relation to your injuries, you have only six months in which to claim compensation for damage to your car. Once you’ve spoken to the police, received medical treatment and talked to your own insurance company, give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline. We can advise you on how to proceed.

Specialist help to sue an insurance company over a car accident

Because there are so many different types of car accident involving different types of road user, traffic law can be extremely complicated. This isn’t the sort of case that it’s wise to trust to a general solicitor. At Accident Advice Helpline we can connect you with a specialist road traffic accident lawyer who is well placed to get you a good result. Because our lawyers use a no win no fee* system you won’t have to worry about the high upfront fees demanded by many solicitors, and because we’re a national organisation with many qualified experts at our disposal we’ll also be able to get your case moving quickly. This means that if any complications develop, you’ll still have a good chance of getting everything sorted out within the time limit.

Sometimes, when insurance companies know they’re going to lose the case, they offer sizeable out of court settlements. Settling out of court doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get less money, because it means everybody saves on court costs. It also saves you the stress and hassle of going to court. If an offer like this is made in your case, we’ll be happy to negotiate on your behalf. We’ll advise you on whether or not it looks like a good deal, but the final decision will always be yours.
