Being involved in a road accident that was not your fault is a frightening and traumatic experience that can make you feel that suddenly you have no control over what is happening to you. If the accident was not your fault and you have been injured there is an added sense of helplessness, as the trauma is prolonged whilst you recover from your injuries. Making a traffic collision claim for compensation can speed up both your physical and mental recovery, and is your legal right.
The Traffic Collision Claim Process
In order to simplify the process we have developed a compensation calculator, also called the 30-second test, which will let you know if you can make a claim and for roughly how much. For people who are not yet ready to talk about their accident, this is a great way to find out if a claim is possible.
If you would rather talk to one of our advisors, call our 24-hour helpline which is open 7 days a week, and our friendly staff will let you know honestly if you have a legitimate claim. They will carefully explain the claims process to you so that you can decide whether you want to go ahead. There is no pressure or obligation to start a claim for compensation, as we understand that it a huge decision to make.
