Car Accident Injury Claim
Car accident compensation claims are one of the most common types of accident claims seen in the UK. Thousands of road users suffer injury in a car every year and are able to make a claim.
Many road traffic accidents occur at high-speeds and result in serious injury. Drastic after effects enter your life.
Working For You Following A Car Accident
The law is in place to protect victims of road traffic accidents. If you gain an injury through no fault of your own then you could hold those responsible to account.
Due to the nature of car accidents, with many occurring due to reckless driving, speeding or poor road conditions, if you are hurt through no fault of your own you could be entitled to car accident compensation related to the severity of your injuries.
Our solicitors are dedicated to providing helpful legal advice to all of our clients get the amount of compensation and closure they deserve from car accident personal injuries and all types of road traffic accident claims.
Claims Process: What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
Following a car accident, the number one priority must be the safety of yourself and others. However, if you or your loved ones have been injured, it is important to obtain as much evidence as possible to support your car accident personal injury claim.
The registration number of the other driver is important when making a claim and can be used to identify the driver.
In this age of smartphones, taking pictures can be exceptionally useful for solicitors when making a claim. Pictures such as what caused the incident (if it was road conditions or a malfunctioning traffic light) damage to the vehicles or of the injuries sustained should also be provided where possible.
It is also advisable that you call the police to file a report if you believe that the incident was caused by negligence or if it resulted in serious harm.
At Tinsdills, we pride ourselves on being different from other personal injury law firms. We first work with our clients to examine all of their evidence of an accident on the road and then build the strongest possible case for them.
What Can You Claim For?
Making a car accident injury claim for compensation can be complicated and while the compensation awarded for your injuries can be provided, it can be difficult to give an estimate of exactly what you are entitled to at the outset.
It is possible to claim for more than just the pain and suffering you experience as a result of your injury.
You can also claim for a wide range of related issues that you may incur:
- Damage to property
- Medical bills
- Care costs
- Other financial loss sustained as a result of the car accident, such as loss of earnings.
