Car Accident Claims
If you have been involved in a road accident and the accident was not your fault, or, even if you were party to blame, another driver is also partly blame, then you can claim compensation for your injuries and losses.
The claim is paid by the insurer of the driver responsible. You can claim against the driver of the car you were in, if that driver was to blame. The driver is covered by insurance. Similarly, if the accident was caused by another driver, then it is their insurance which pays compensation if the driver causes you injury.

What level of compensation can I claim for a car accident?
The amount of your award for your injuries will depend on the seriousness of the injury and the effect your injuries may have had on your work and home life. As an illustration of the sort of awards that are made for injuries following a car accident please visit this page.
When there are serious injuries, there is often a need for a number of medical and other expert assessments to be made before the value of your claim can be assessed properly and professionally. Our team of compensation lawyers will also ensure that you claim for all losses that you can, including losses that you have suffered already and losses that you are likely to suffer in the future. Therefore, in order to recover all your financial losses and expenses, you should preserve any documentary and/or photographic evidence, such as payslips, invoices, photographs of damage property, etc.
Am I entitled to claim if the accident is my fault?
If you were in a car when the driver of the car was to blame, you can claim as a passenger.
If you were not wearing a seatbelt you can claim, though your compensation may be reduced.
You should speak to one of our car accident compensation lawyers to find out if you can claim.
