How do I make a road traffic accident claim?
To make a claim, you need to first know the limitations attached. A car accident claim must be brought (submitted to the court) within three years of the date you suffered an injury or three years of you being aware that you have suffered an injury.
After any car accident where you have suffered an injury, your first port of call should be to get medical assistance for any aches and pains. This could assist with providing access to early rehabilitation and interim compensation payments to cover some immediate losses or expenses incurred.
After this, you should contact a specialist solicitor as soon as possible to start the road traffic accident claim process. Call our team of experienced solicitors who will provide you with a free no obligation consultation and advise you on the next steps you should take.
"THANK YOU FOR YOUR EXPERTISE AND GREAT EFFORT ON OUR BEHALF...I AM TRULY GRATEFUL TO YOU."
The team will assess your case based on the information provided. We may need to secure additional evidence including an independent medical report of your injuries.
Once we have this, we will process your claim and support you with getting access to other support services, should they be needed.
How much compensation will I get?
Every injury and every road traffic accident claim is unique, so the amount of compensation you may get will be personal to you based on the circumstances of your injuries. Personal injury compensation comes in two forms:
- General damages – Compensation paid in relation to the actual injuries you have suffered and the impact these have had on you and your family.
- Special damages – Compensation paid for financial losses you have incurred, including medical bills, loss of income and rehabilitation.
As your case develops, speak to your solicitor to find out how much compensation you may be able to get in your case.
