Your right to car accident compensation

One of the most common reasons for making a compensation claim is following a car accident. Most people who are injured in this way, however, have had little to no previous experience when it comes to making a personal injury claim. Fear and worry about what the process may involve can sometimes prevent them from claiming the car accident compensation that they have a right to.

Straightforward legal advice - and reassurance
An important part of our service is to provide anyone who has been hurt in a non-fault car accident with as much information and advice as they need. Hefty documentation and legal jargon can be intimidating, and a few words of explanation can often prove extremely reassuring.

Frequently asked questions

Can I make a claim if there was no police prosecution against the other party?
Even where the police have not prosecuted the other party for their actions, you can still make a claim for car accident compensation.

Who is entitled to claim compensation?
In a nutshell anyone who can answer yes to these three questions can make a claim:

  • Have you been injured in an accident which was not your fault?
  • Can you demonstrate that you were injured as a result of the accident?

Will I have to go to court?
The vast majority of car accident compensation cases never get as far as the courtroom, as current legal guidelines encourage both your lawyer and the defendant's legal representatives to settle cases in as straightforward a manner as possible, without the extra upheaval of attending court. However, certain circumstances can mean that your case may go to court, but our solicitor will advise you as to whether this is likely in your case.

How much compensation will I get?
This very much depends on the nature of your injuries and the circumstances of the car accident. Take a look at our page on compensation amounts for a guide to likely compensation awards, or ask our personal injury solicitors.
