Claims for road traffic accidents – what you need to know
If you’ve been in a road traffic accident, you could be faced with an extensive recovery period.
A car accident can be a traumatic event, and you may well struggle to come to terms with the consequences, especially if it was an accident for which somebody else was responsible. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re here to help you make claims for Warrington road traffic accidents if you have been injured. If you are thinking about making a claim, there are some important things to keep in mind:
You must not have been at fault
Not all parties involved in an accident can make a compensation claim. In order to claim, you must have been the innocent party in the accident, and able to prove that someone else was at fault. For example, if you have been injured in an accident caused by a driver that was using a handheld device while driving, you could be entitled to make a claim.
There is a time limit for Warrington road traffic accidents claims
Although there is no minimum time to wait to make Warrington road traffic accidents, there is a maximum time limit. Under UK law, you have up to three years to make a claim for a road traffic accident.
You could receive a substantial amount in compensation
When it comes to determining how much you could be owed, it’s not just a case of awarding money in a settlement for the physical injury alone. An injury, regardless of how minor or severe, can have many repercussions. These can be psychological in nature, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, or financial, such as paying for medicines or rehabilitative therapy.
To find out how much you could be owed, just fill in our 30-second claims calculator, and get a quick quote online. You can also call our helpline to speak to one of our claims advisers about beginning a claim.
