No Win No Fee road traffic accident claims

The vast majority of our claims for road traffic accidents are conducted on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that we bare all the upfront costs, meaning that there will only be a fee if we win your case, so you will never be out of pocket.

What can I claim for after a road traffic accident?

As well as the costs of any medical bills, lost income and vehicle repairs there are a variety of different elements you can claim for. The amount of compensation tends to vary on the seriousness of the injury sustained and how much they affect your life.

Can I claim compensation for a road traffic accident that was partly my fault?

It’s worth contacting us if you where in a road traffic accident, even if you could be partly to blame.

To be able to claim compensation, you will need to be able to prove that the accident was someone else’s fault or of an organisation. If you where entirely at fault for the accident, it’s unlikely you will be able to make a claim. If you where partly to blame, you may be able to make a road traffic accident compensation claim.

micase for whiplash injuries

Under the new, government process, this service is conducted through an online portal, therefore any updates on your case will be given via the micase portal which you can log onto at any time to check the progress.

One of the factors involved in how long your case will take is whether or not the other party accepts responsibility for the accident and how long their representatives take to respond. We will keep you updated of progress via the portal when anything material happens with your claim.

If you have a whiplash injury as a result of a road traffic accident, you can bring the claim yourself as a Litigant in Person. However, there are challenges which may be faced when representing yourself as a Litigant in Person, and it may be a stressful and complex process.

That's why we've introduced the micase RTA platform - an innovative, self-service, online claims portal which provides you with legal advice and representation from experts on a No Win No Fee basis, so you don't have to worry about having to represent yourself or ending up out of pocket.
