Had an accident on the road?

Being caught in a car accident is an extremely distressing experience for everyone involved. The implications of a serious injury can disrupt your normal everyday life, impact your finances, and leave you with severe mental trauma.

More than 28,000 people suffered serious injuries as a result of road casualties in the year ending June 2022. Our Car Accident Solicitors have unparalleled experience helping injured victims of car accidents achieve the compensation they rightfully deserve.

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

Generally speaking, you need to submit your claim to the court within three years of a car accident. However, time limits vary in different circumstances, for example, you may be allowed longer if you're claiming on behalf of a child or someone with diminished mental capacity or you may have less time if your accident happened in another country or your claiming through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

It's important therefore to seek legal advice as soon as possible following a car accident.

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 compensation claim take?

This all depends on how serious your injuries are - ranging from whiplash injuries to permanent disability. It also depends on whether the insurer of the driver at fault for the accident accepts that their insured driver was at fault.
