CAR ACCIDENT COMPENSATION CLAIMS
If you were injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, please call our no win no fee car accident solicitors for a free consultation on 0161 207 2020 or tell us about your accident online and we will call you as soon as possible.
With the best will in the world car accidents do happen, and the stress and inconvenience this can cause should not be underestimated. More cars on the road mean more accidents are likely to occur. If you have been involved in a car accident, whether as a driver or passenger, you may be able to recover compensation and our friendly car accident solicitors are here to help.
If someone else was wholly or partly to blame then we will ensure that your claim is dealt with at no financial risk to you.
How We Can Help You With Your Car Accident Claim
Our dedicated Road Traffic Accident Team has decades of experience of helping both drivers and passengers who have suffered as a result of a car accident. We strive to help you find answers as to why the accident happened, who is responsible and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Car accidents can happen for many reasons, including speeding, drink driving, drug driving, lack of concentration and failing to maintain a safe distance between vehicles. Poor weather conditions and poor road conditions are also common causes of road accidents, including potholes, high winds and wet and icy roads. Car accident compensation claims can be pursued on the basis of many types of injury, varying from whiplash to the neck or back, to broken bones and in some cases, far worse.
What To Do If You’ve Had A Car Accident
If you’ve been injured in a road accident, you will need to report this to your insurers.
If you are fit and in a safe place to do so, at the scene of your accident you should also:
- collect the contact information of those involved
- collect the registration numbers of the vehicles involved
- collect any witness statements, if possible
- take photographs of the accident and any damage.
If you’re unable to exchange details at the time of accident then you should report your accident to the police within 24 hours. If you do contact the police, remember to obtain the official police report which will detail any medical treatment you have received, which in turn will help your car accident claim.
Our specialist team understand that car accidents can be very traumatic for those involved, therefore don’t worry if you can’t collect all the information we require. Any details you can provide to our car accident solicitors will help us to work through your car accident compensation claim, allowing us to gain a better understanding of the cause and who was responsible.
Every driver is required by law to have insurance and to produce details of their insurer in the event of a car accident. Any compensation awarded is paid by the other driver’s insurance company and therefore the financial position of the driver at fault is not generally important in relation to your car accident claim.
From helping you deal with initial vehicle repairs to ensuring you achieve a successful outcome, we will calmly guide you through the claims process and ensure that all of your losses are considered, for example insurance policy excess, loss of earnings and medical expenses.
If medical treatment is needed or specialist rehabilitation required, we can arrange this on your behalf to ensure your recovery is swift and hassle free.
If you are struggling financially due to the car accident, we can look to secure an early interim payment of compensation on account, which will allow you to focus on your recovery whilst your claim is ongoing.

How To Make A Car Accident Compensation Claim
Choosing an experienced solicitor to handle your claim can have a measurable effect on the amount of car accident compensation you are ultimately awarded. As a general rule, your claim must start within three years of the date of the accident and in order to pursue your claim yourself, you must be 18 years of age or over. If your child has been injured, you as the parent or guardian can bring the claim on their behalf at any time up to three years following their 18th birthday. This can, in exceptional circumstances, be extended, but it is always best to speak to our team of friendly car accident solicitors to get the best advice possible from the outset.
Our expert car accident solicitors will assess your claim from the outset and advise you at an early stage as to the likelihood of a successful claim. If you want to know whether you have a claim, please call us now for a free consultation on 0161 207 2020, request a callback or start your claim online using our dedicated form.
If we feel your claim has potential we will discuss the next steps in detail with you, including the no win no fee agreement and your claim will be submitted to the other party and their insurers on your behalf.
We do all we can to make the process smooth and as hassle free as possible.
