How your car accident lawyer can help you claim compensation
Tragically, each year almost 30,000 people are killed or seriously injured in traffic accidents across the UK. Although most road traffic accidents are minor, resulting in a bumped bonnet or mild whiplash, others can cause serious life threatening injuries and sadly some are fatal.
The Road Traffic Act 1999 means you are able to claim compensation for a traffic accident that wasn’t your fault. However, to give you the best chance of successfully claiming compensation it must be clear who caused the accident.
Our traffic accident solicitors can help you claim for any loss of earnings – now or in the future – caused by your injuries. In addition, you can claim for the cost of your medical care and vehicle costs. Your car accident lawyer can make sure you claim for everything you’re entitled to.
How do I claim compensation after a road traffic accident?
Our specialist traffic accident solicitors are experts in dealing with road traffic accidents and can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer.
You will be assigned an experienced car accident lawyer who will keep you up to date with your claim throughout the process. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim.
You may be able to claim compensation if you were in an accident involving a bus or coach, a hit and run, an uninsured driver, a pedestrian, a car or motorbikes and cyclist. Whether were the driver of a vehicle, the passenger or a pedestrian, you could be entitled to compensation if you were not at fault.
We understand that winning compensation can make things easier with some injuries requiring people to take time off work, travel for treatment or make alternations in their homes. Our dedicated traffic accident solicitors will do everything they can to ensure your life can return to normal as soon as possible.
Your no win no fee traffic accident solicitors
Your claim may be eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
How long do I have to make a traffic accident compensation claim?
You usually have three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which we can advise you on.
