Accident claim – the facts

Many people fear that making an accident claim following a car crash will result in legal fees that are greater than the compensation award itself. They may also worry that their car insurance premiums will go up in the future because of their decision to make a claim.

Will my insurance premiums go up?
Your insurance premiums should not go up as a result of making an accident claim. Provided the accident in which you were hurt was not your fault, then it is the responsibility of the other party’s insurers to cover your compensation claim. Even if you claim on your own insurance policy, your insurance company should recover the cost of your claim from the insurance company of the person who caused the accident.

How do I know if I have a claim?
In order to make an accident claim you need to be able to say yes to the following questions:

  • Was your accident in the last three years?
  • Did the accident occur as the result of someone else’s actions – whether intentional or not?
  • Can you demonstrate that you were hurt?

If you’re not sure that you can answer a definitive yes to each question then you should call us anyway. Each case is unique and we will look at the circumstances and tell you whether you have an accident claim.
