Our Personal Injury solicitors can help you get the maximum compensation for injury following a car accident. Regardless of the injury being big or small you can claim compensation provided you meet the criteria to do so.
Making a car accident claim is actually quite simple. The first thing to do is either call us or post an enquiry and we will call you .We will need to ask you some questions to ensure that you meet the criteria for making a claim and ensure we understand how the accident happened. Details we will usually ask for are:
Please try to have details of all those involved
Names and numbers of any witnesses
Accident location and potential photos
Details of the injury you sustained
Once we have collected all this information, we will then arrange contact between you and the solicitor who will then help you make the claim for injury. Our Personal Injury solicitors are carefully selected and have helped thousands of people make a claim for compensation.

Road accidents unfortunately also include children. As much as we wan to , we cannot avoid children being involved in car accidents. Personal Injury Solicitors can help you make a compensation claim on behalf of a child
You can make a claim for your child until they are 18 years old. Once they turn 18, they can make the claim themselves and they have 3 years from this date to do so
There is no definite answer to this. The compensation claim can vary depending on how easy or complex it is. There are a number of factors that impact this including :
If injuries are minor, then your claim could be settled in just a few months provided the other party accepts liability. If you are seriously injured, or liability is denied or your case has to go to court, it can take longer.
