How do I make a claim about a car accident.
Making a car accident injury claim is simple. If you think you have a case, contact our specialist car accident lawyers who will listen and give you initial advice, usually without any cost or obligation to use our services.
If you proceed with your claim, our immediate priority will be your health. If needed we can arrange the correct medical assessment and early treatment, often obtaining interim payments from the other side to fund any medical attention you require. Access Legal may also arrange for medical experts to assess your injuries and prepare comprehensive reports in order to properly value your claim.
If necessary, we can also call on technical and engineering experts who can reconstruct the circumstances of the accident or inspect damaged vehicles and recommend repairs to add further weight to your claim. If your injuries were caused by another motorist, your claim will be made against their insurance company. If the accident was caused by potholes or cracks in the road a claim would be made against the Highways Agency or relevant local authority.
We can also help with claims involving uninsured drivers or hit and runs, obtaining settlement from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). Any damages awarded will be based on loss of earnings if you’ve had to take time off work and all your other out of pocket expenses as well as remuneration for the pain or suffering you’ve experienced as a result of your injury.
