Claiming compensation for a car accident

Car accidents can be distressing, frustrating and scary. They can happen to anyone at any time and can cause serious injuries and other problems.

With cars accounting for around 80% of traffic on UK roads, according to the Department for Transport, their occupants are at higher risk of injury from accidents. In 2019, car occupants made up 43% of all deaths on the roads and the largest proportion of casualties of all severities.

In 2018 – the most recent statistics available – driver error or reaction was responsible for the highest number of car crashes in the UK, at 46,978. Most of these incidents were down to the driver failing to look properly.

If you’re suffering from injuries that were the result of a car accident caused by someone else, you could be able to make a claim for compensation to help your recovery.

Common injuries we can help you make a claim for include:

How do I make a car crash claim?

If you think you may have a car accident claim, the first thing to do is get in touch for free with the team here at First4Lawyers.

We’ll talk you through your accident and establish whether we think you have a valid claim. If so, we’ll introduce you to one of our specialist road traffic accident solicitors.

Your solicitor will then talk through your case and set out your options. They’ll explain their No Win No Fee agreement with you and check that you’re happy to go ahead – everything is on your terms.

Once you have agreed to proceed with a claim, your solicitor will begin the process. This will involve compiling your evidence and contacting the responsible party’s insurer to let them know that you intend to make a claim.

How much do car accident claims cost?

Our solicitors typically work on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that you don’t have to pay anything upfront to get your claim started. It also means that you won’t have to pay anything if you aren’t successful.

A No Win No Fee agreement means that there are no hidden costs. You are informed at the beginning of the process about what percentage of the compensation awarded your solicitor will take – never more than 25%.

Your car accident personal injury claim shouldn’t cost you money to pursue. You are entitled to justice after being hurt by another driver’s negligence or mistake. Our No Win No Fee claims process helps you get that justice.

How much compensation will I receive?

Every situation is different. You may be involved in a similar car accident to someone else, but suffer different injuries. That’s why every car crash claim is assessed individually and why your compensation will depend on your specific circumstances.

Car accident injury compensation will be split into two parts: general damages and special damages.

General damages compensate you for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced after your car crash, as well as any impact on your quality of life. Special damages compensate you for any financial effect the crash has had – such as a loss of earnings if you can’t work, damage to your property and medical treatment.

Our compensation calculator could give you a rough idea of what you may be entitled to after your car accident. If you’d prefer to talk to someone about it, you can get in touch with us for free to discuss your claim.

Why should I make a car crash claim?

If you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are legally entitled to compensation. This can go a long way towards aiding your recovery, helping you get back into the position you were in before you were hurt.

Car accidents can be serious. They can result in severe injuries. This could mean you’re unable to work, which could then lead to real money worries. A successful claim will allow you to focus on your recovery rather than your financial difficulties.

It can also help you pay for whatever you need to help you get back to health. This could be any mobility aids you require, any home modifications or any form of treatment, such as physiotherapy.

How long do I have to make a car accident claim?

Most people will have three years to make a claim from the date of their car accident. Although it sounds like lots of time to start your claim, it’s a good idea to begin the process as soon as possible.

The sooner you start your claim, the easier you will find it to recall the details of your crash. Witnesses and anyone else involved in the accident could also find it easier to remember exactly what happened.

You could also find it more straightforward to get hold of any required evidence when you start your claim as soon as possible. This could include police reports, insurance records and even CCTV.

There are some exceptions to the three-year deadline, though. If a child was injured in a car accident, they will have three years from the date of their 18th birthday to make a claim. And if you’re claiming on behalf of someone who lacks the capacity to claim for themselves, you will only face a time limit if they regain capacity.

What evidence do I need for a car accident claim?

The more evidence you have, the stronger your claim will be. If you’re able, there are a few things you can do at the scene of the accident to help provide this evidence.

Take photographs and video footage of your vehicle and injuries as soon as the accident happens. You should also get the details of anyone else involved in the accident and anyone who saw it happen.

Make sure you report your accident to the police. You might find that the report on your crash can form significant evidence when making a car accident injury claim. Your medical records will also contribute to the evidence you need for a strong claim. Your solicitor will likely arrange for you to have a medical assessment by an expert to show how the accident has affected your health.

If applicable, you can also get your employer to produce a letter documenting that you have not worked or lost hours, explaining how much of your income you have lost out on. This can help you claim that loss back.

Road Traffic Accident FAQs

Can passengers claim compensation?

Yes, if you’re a passenger who has been involved in a collision on the road and suffered injuries through no fault of your own, then you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation.

I was hit by an uninsured driver. Can I claim?

Yes, you can make a claim if you were hit by an uninsured driver.

With the help of our panel of solicitors, you can claim through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).

Backed by every motor insurer in the UK, the MIB is a scheme set up to help compensate victims of accidents caused by uninsured and untraced motorists.

How much can I claim for a road traffic accident?

It depends on the type and severity of any injuries sustained.

For those inflicted with minor brain or head injuries, they could receive between £1,940 and £11,200. At the other end of the scale, severe leg injuries could see compensation between £48,080 and £119,210, whereas loss of an arm may mean an award of between £84,310 to upwards of £120,270.

For further examples see our compensation calculator.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Generally speaking there is a limit of three years to start a claim, starting from the date of your accident. If you were under the age of 18 when you had your accident, you have until your 21st birthday.

How long will a claim take?

The length of time it will take to make your claim depends on your individual circumstances.

Every case is different, so it’s very difficult to say at the early stages how long the process will be from start to finish.

Once your solicitor has completed their initial investigations into your case, they will be in a better position to advise you on how long the process is likely to take.

To give you a very general idea:

  • For a personal injury claim like minor whiplash, for example, the process could be completed in about six months. But in more complex cases, such as claims involving a trip, slip or fall, it could take over a year to be settled. The process could also be longer if the defendant disputes your claim.

  • Claiming for a work accident could be between six and nine months. But if the injury is more severe, or there are legal complexities, it could take longer.

  • Medical negligence cases tend to take longer as they can be complex with multiple factors and evidence.  A rough estimate would be 18-26 months.

You can contact one of our advisors to discuss your situation.
