Can I Make a Car Accident Claim?

When you get in touch for a free claims assessment, one of our Car Accident Lawyers will need to decide if we can prove that:

  • Someone else was responsible for the accident
  • You were injured because of the accident
  • The accident happened in the last 3 years

Passenger Car Accident Claims

Passengers injured in a car accident can claim compensation, even if the driver of the car you were in was responsible for the accident.

You might be reluctant to make a claim against them, particularly if they’re a friend or family member. But please don’t worry, this is exactly what car insurance is for. Their car insurance company would pay the costs of a successful claim, including your compensation settlement. Your friend or family member won’t be out of pocket, and you can still the compensation you need to make a full recovery.

The Other Driver Left the Scene of the Accident

Most people don’t know that you can make a car accident claim if you were injured because of a driver who fled the scene of the accident, known as an untraced driver or by an uninsured driver.  

Insurance companies have to put money into a fund, managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau, to cover compensation for people who are injured by uninsured or untraced drivers.  Even though the process is slightly different, we can still help you make a claim.

The Claims Process Explained


    Free Claims Assessment

    We’ll give you a free claims assessment to see if we can take on your claim


    Gathering Evidence

    Once we take your claim on, we’ll gather evidence including police statements, accident reports, photographs taken at the scene of the accident, dash cam footage and witness statements


    Full Investigation

    We’ll carry out a full investigation to find out who’s responsible for the accident and your injuries


    Medical Experts

    We’ll arrange for you to be examined by an independent medical expert. They’ll give us a written medical report on your injuries. This will help us understand how they’ve affected your life. The medical report will also help us to understand if we need to arrange any rehabilitation or if you have any care needs.


    Calculating Your Compensation

    Once we have all the information, your Car Accident Lawyer will review it all and calculate how much compensation you should get


    Interim Payment

    If the other side accept responsibility for the accident, we could then apply for Interim Payments of compensation for you. This can help you to access medical treatment and support you need without having to wait for your case to settle. It can also help you pay your living costs if you can’t go to work because of your injuries


    Settling Your Claim

    If the other side accept don’t accept responsibility and your claim is scheduled to go to Court, don’t worry as only around 1% of claims actually get to Court.

Should you case be heard in Court, we’ll be there alongside you, offering support every step of the way.
