Car Accident Claims

If you have been a victim of a car accident that wasn't your fault and suffered personal injury as a result, you could be entitled to receive compensation. Call our No Win No Fee* personal injury solicitors for a no obligation free consultation on 0161 763 8260.

Accident Assistance can provide immediate legal representation and support for an injured party anywhere in the United Kingdom. If you were involved in an accident with a car, whether you were the driver, passenger, a pedestrian, cyclist or motor cycle, Accident Assistance will be able to assist you in making a car accident claim.

No Win No Fee Car Accident Compensation Claim

The majority of car accident injury cases our solicitors deal with are funded through a No Win No Fee agreement*, otherwise known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. This means in the rare instance that your claim is not successful, you will not be charged any fees.

The first step to making a car accident claim is to contact our specialist road traffic accident solicitors for a free consultation to assess your case. All you need to do is provide us with the details of the car accident and your injuries, including any other losses you may have incurred.

Once we have collected all the information about your accident, we will assess your claim on its merits and likelihood of success and advise you on how to proceed with your claim. You can begin your car injury claim online or by phone 0161 763 8260. We have advisors available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

How Much Can I Claim

One of the most common questions asked by clients, quite naturally, is "how much compensation will I receive for my injuries?" Compensation is awarded in an attempt to get you back to where you were prior to the car accident occuring. This means any out of pocket expenses can be recovered and there is a range of amounts that can be claimed for various injury types. It is our job as solicitors to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to by law.

Standard claim amounts are set by the Judicial Studies Board (JSB) and the amount you receive will depend on the severity and duration of your injuries. Below we have provided a table of average claim amounts for our most common cases, but you should be aware that amounts may change and the below should not be considered as exact due to every case being unique. Your assigned solicitor will be able to tell you what you are entitled to receive when all information about your accident has been reviewed.

Replacement Car

We want to make sure that your car accident has as little an impact as possible on your personal life or your livelihood and we will aim to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. Once we are happy that the car accident wasn’t your fault, we are able to organise a replacement, like for like, hire vehicle for you to use whilst your own is off the road – anywhere in the UK. Delivery of your replacement vehicle will be expertly managed by one of our approved suppliers and, because we recover the charges from the at fault party there are no up-front charges for you to pay.

Car Repairs

Our national approved vehicle repair Service ensures that your damaged vehicle is put back on the road as quickly as possible – provided it is repairable. Once we are happy that the incident wasn’t your fault, we can arrange for your vehicle to go to one of our approved repairers and for it to be inspected by an independent motor engineer who will agree repair costs and then, if it is repairable, authorise repairs to commence immediately. If your vehicle is a total loss the independent engineers will prepare a report detailing the value of your vehicle and we will send this to you for your approval before submitting it to the other side for payment. We can also arrange to provide you with a replacement vehicle to use whilst your own is off the road to make sure you are inconvenienced as little as possible.
