How much compensation can I claim after a car accident?

If you have been unfortunate enough to be injured in a car accident, you may be wondering how much compensation you are entitled to claim for your injuries. The amounts involved will vary depending on the extent of those injuries but they could run into thousands of pounds if they have a serious impact on your life. For help and advice about car accident injury compensation and other accident related issues call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

Anybody who has suffered physically or mentally due to a road accident caused by someone else’s poor driving may be able to pursue an injury claim up to three years after the incident occurred.

If the injury is minor you could be entitled to a claim settlement of several hundred pounds if you are successful. Even relatively small amounts can be helpful to help pay for additional treatments that could speed up the recovery process.

Larger compensation amounts will be awarded if you need a longer recovery period and/or it affects your ability to work or carry out daily tasks that you were previously able to do.

The solicitors we work with will consider all these factors when pursuing your compensation claim and look to achieve a settlement that is in your best interests.

In addition to assisting with your claim for injury compensation, we can also provide practical help with your car accident repairs, provide you with a comparable replacement vehicle and legal support with other aspects of the car accident.

Because we deal directly with the insurer of the person responsible, you do not have to make a claim on your own insurance policy as we will recover the costs associated with the claim on your behalf.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a comparable replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.

Car Call and its partners will provide a comparable replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.
