Can I make a claim following a car accident?

If you have been injured in a road accident and someone else was, to blame you may be able to make a successful car accident compensation claim. Remember that:

  • Other road users have a responsibility to drive carefully and safely.
  • Drivers are responsible for the safety of any passengers in their vehicles.
  • Councils and local authorities have a duty to keep roads in good condition.
  • Your employer has legal responsibility and a duty of care in relation to your well-being, if you're on the road as part of your job.

How much compensation will I receive for a car accident claim?

The amount of compensation that you receive for the injuries that you have suffered, will depend on a number of factors. That is why at the start of any compensation claim, it is impossible to say with any degree of certainty, how much that will be.

What you can be sure of, is that Spencers’ specialist car accident solicitors will ensure that the amount you receive will be the maximum possible, and will take into account not only the pain and suffering you have endured but also the amount of inconvenience to your everyday life that the injury has caused you. We will also ensure that the cost of any medical, rehabilitation, or care needs that you already have, as a result of the accident, or that you are likely to need in the future, will be included in the final amount of compensation that you are awarded.

Some of the factors that will be taken into account in working out the amount of compensation that you will receive;

  • Your injuries may be relatively minor in their severity, with the effects of them lasting only a few months. Alternatively, they could be more serious, with some injuries requiring surgery, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, and ongoing treatment.
  • As expert car accident solicitors, we work with medical professionals to carefully define the status of your injury, how it can be expected to develop and how long it is likely to be before you have fully recovered from the effects of the injury. It may be that it is not possible for the medical experts to say, when they first examine you, how long it is likely to be before you can expect a full recovery. This may mean that you will need to be examined again or even multiple more times before they can give an accurate time estimate for when complete recovery can be expected.

What else can I claim for following a car accident?

As well as making a claim for personal injury compensation, it is also possible to claim for financial losses that you suffer as a result of the car accident. When you are involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to expect the party that caused it, to put you back into the financial position that you would have been in, had the accident not happened. Therefore, you will be entitled to claim for such losses as;

  • Loss of earnings – if you are unable to work as a result of the injuries that you suffered in the accident, you will be entitled to recover any loss of earnings as a result of your absence from work.
  • Your insurance policy excess, or
  • The cost of repairs to your vehicle
  • Cost of a temporary hire car or suitable replacement vehicle
  • Public transport costs while your vehicle is being repaired
  • Replacement booster or baby seats
  • Repair or replacement of personal items that were damaged in the crash

When we compile your road traffic accident compensation claim we will always make sure that all your losses are included in the claim that we present on your behalf, to the insurance company of the party that caused the accident.
