- Eligibility Criteria for Car Accident Claims
Before we take on your claim, we need to determine that the other road user owed you a duty of care, and due to their negligence, that duty was broken, and you sustained injuries. Even if the accident was your fault, you may still be eligible to claim if it occurred due to the road’s condition.
It is advisable to gather evidence, such as CCTV footage, dash cam footage, witness details, and police reports (if available). This information will help us to compile a case against the third party and make the compensation process smoother.
The payout for a car accident claim depends on the severity of injuries and specific circumstances. Compensation includes general damages, additional travel expenses, and loss of earnings.
General damages compensate for the pain and suffering experienced due to the collision, and special damages compensate for financial losses, such as medical expenses and loss of earnings.
Most people have three years to make a car accident compensation claim. However, the time taken depends on individual circumstances, and if the insurer of the driver at fault does not admit responsibility, the negotiation process could take longer. It is crucial to begin the process as soon as possible to receive compensation sooner.
