When investigating your compensation claim, we’ll always try and establish who was responsible for your accident, and work hard to get an admission of liability from them. If this is possible, then your case can be settled without court proceedings.

This is the case for the vast majority of the claims we pursue.

However, if the person responsible will not admit fault, or the value of your claim cannot be agreed, then court proceedings may be necessary.

If You Suffered an Injury in an Accident, We Can Help Make Sure You Get The Settlement You Deserve!

Our attorneys and legal professionals have handled countless claims with big insurance companies. We know the tips for combating the company’s tricks they use to pay out as little as possible, even when their customers caused your injuries. Or even when you’re one of its customers, and need to file a claim.

How Soon Should I Make A Claim?

Although you usually have three years after the date of an accident to make a claim for compensation, it’s a good idea to contact a solicitor as soon as possible.

Contacting a law firm early means the investigation of your accident can get underway while memories of the incident are still fresh in the minds of all involved.

There are some exceptions to the three year time limit for making a claim. They are:

  • Mental Capacity – if a loved one lacks the capacity to make a claim themselves, there is no time limit for making a claim on their behalf.
  • Children – claims can be made at any point before your child turns 18. After that, your child can make a claim up until the age of 21.
  • Road Traffic Accidents Abroad – time limits in other countries can be shorter than in the UK. However, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may still be able to make a claim under UK law.
  • Criminal Injuries – in cases where your injuries were caused by a deliberate act, a claim can also be made through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority. However, in these cases a time limit of two years applies from the date of the incident.

If you’re unsure about whether you should begin the claims process or not, you can contact us.
