Car Accident Compensation Claims
Most of us travel in cars every day and think little of it. We certainly don’t expect to be injured in a car crash while going about our regular business but that’s exactly what happens to almost 60 people on British roads every day. Official government figures show that in just twelve months 21,657 people were seriously injured, while more than 1,700 died directly from involvement in a car accident.
If you, or someone you love, has been wounded in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, The Compensation Experts can help you claim the payment you deserve. This payment lets you access medical treatment and rehabilitation care to allow you to recover and move forward with your life.
What is a Car Accident Compensation Claim?
Every year thousands of people suffer the emotional and physical trauma of being involved in an accident that was not of their doing. Compensation claims for injuries sustained in car accidents can include:
- Fractures and dislocations
- Cuts and bruises
Compensation is for more than physical damage. Additional costs associated with car accident claims include:
- Private medical treatment like physiotherapy, or at home nursing care
- Hiring another vehicle if yours is unusable
- Lost income if you are unable to work while you recover
- Travel expenses going to and from the hospital, your GP, or another place of treatment
- If you have had to cancel an upcoming holiday due to the injuries you have sustained
An example of a successful compensation claim for a car accident was a woman who was injured when the car she was a passenger in was struck by an oncoming vehicle coming around a corner on the wrong side of the road. She suffered cuts, bruises, and short-term memory loss due to a head injury. Lawyers for the other driver’s insurance company initially denied responsibility for the accident. It took extensive negotiation, but an amount of compensation was agreed without the case going to court.
Claiming Compensation for a Car Accident
The Compensation Experts can assist you with your request even if the other driver involved was uninsured, or they did not stop at the scene, and it is not possible to locate them. The latter happens through the Untraced Drivers Agreement managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau. If you wish to claim via this agreement you must report the accident to the police within 14 days if you are making a personal injury compensation claim, or five days if you want payment for damage to your car or property.
Your lawyer will help you compile the evidence to show not only the nature of your injury and the impact it has had on your life, but also that the other party was responsible. They will request compensation and negotiate on your behalf until a settlement is agreed.
To make the claims process as simple as possible for you, we are happy to offer a free, no obligation consultation. It is important you have the information you need to make the right decision about whether or not to pursue a claim. We also give our clients the option of choosing a No Win No Fee* agreement so you do not have to pay any legal costs up front, and none at all if your claim is not successful.
