Car Accident Claims

Even if you are a careful, conscientious and calm driver, others may not be as considerate while on the roads. No matter how safe you try to be when driving, the behaviour of others could still lead to an accident which is no fault of your own. 

If you or a loved one is involved in an accident due to another driver’s negligent behaviour, then you may be able to claim compensation. The compensation awarded could help with the recovery process, such as paying for treatment or helping with the financial burden of not being able to work for a while. Most importantly, compensation can act to bring a form of closure to an incident that can often be quite traumatic. 

Make a claim now by calling 0800 808 9740 or contacting us online.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Minor car accidents, such as contact at a low speed, can still cause injury to drivers and passengers. Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash can often leave the victim in pain, experiencing stiffness in the neck or back and a lack of mobility. No matter the severity of your injuries, we are here to help ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.

Some of the more frequent car accident injuries include: 

  • Whiplash
  • Fractured/broken bones
  • Injuries to the victim’s internal organs 
  • Internal bleeding
  • Amputation
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries 
  • Spinal injuries
  • Fatalities
  • Emotional and psychological trauma 


I found your services to be excellent and my solicitor kept me well informed on everything. I found her to be polite, friendly and very professional.

About Compensation

Car accident-related injuries can often take a long time to recover from, causing a negative impact upon your life and your ability to work/complete certain tasks. Serious injuries could potentially leave a person with a disability, meaning that they require long-term care. Compensation cannot undo the injuries or the experience that you have sadly had to go through, but it can help provide the means to move forward, recover and recoup lost finances.

Compensation amounts are calculated by assessing the amount of pain and suffering that an injury or illness has caused someone as well as understanding the impact that this has had upon their ability to function/their amenity. Compensation also takes into account financial losses, such as lost income, property damage or costs for treatment and travel. If there are any extra costs related to your injuries or the accident, you should endeavour to keep any receipts highlighting this so that they can later be used within the compensation calculation.

To find out about compensation estimates for certain injuries, visit our compensation calculator.

However, the best way to get a compensation calculation for your specific circumstances is to speak directly to a personal injury solicitor who can assess your case.
