Car accident compensation claims

Even minor car accidents can leave you with long-term injuries such as whiplash. Insurers may try to make you an early offer, but it's important to take impartial legal advice before you accept. The majority of Slater and Gordon clients claim compensation on a No Win No Fee basis.

How long do I have to claim for car accident injuries?

Generally speaking, you can start a claim for compensation within three years of a car accident, though you may be allowed longer if you're claiming on behalf of a child or someone with diminished mental capacity. Time limits may vary if claiming through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Can I claim if a car accident was partly my fault?

Many car accidents are caused by a combination of errors. Even if you believe you were at fault as a driver, that may not be the case in purely legal terms. So it's always worth talking to us about No Win No Fee compensation, even if you may have been partially at fault.

How long does a car accident claim take?

This all depends on how serious your injuries are - ranging from whiplash injuries to permanent disability - as well as whether the other party's insurers accept liability. However, where a claim for compensation is likely to be straightforward as your injuries are relatively minor, we handle every No Win No Fee car accident claim through our expedited fast track team to help our clients get the compensation they need as quickly as possible.

How much accident compensation can I claim?

Again, this depends on the severity of any injuries. It's also important to know you can claim for a number of losses caused by a car accident, including general damages, additional travel expenses and loss of earnings. You may also be able to claim for the cost of any physiotherapy or other essential rehabilitation.

What if I was injured on public transport.

Accidents involving public transport such as collisions with taxis or Ubers and even busses can happen and aren't uncommon. If you were involved in one of these collisions even if you were a pedestrian or in another vehicle, Slater and Gordon could help you get the compensation you deserve to get you back on your feet.
