 If you have been involved in a road
 traffic accident that wasn’t your fault,
 you have grounds to make a car injury
 claim.

A personal injury lawyer will be able to
 guide you through the legal process once
 they have assessed the evidence and
 determined that you have a valid claim
 for financial compensation.
What Information Is Required For A
 Car Injury Claim
If you are looking to make a car injury
 claim all your paper work needs to be in
 order. The best way to ensure this is to
 stay calm and focused. At the scene of
 the accident, you should always attempt
 to get the personal details and
 identification from the other driver.
Make sure that you have received the
 following information:
The other driver’s name, home address
 and telephone number
The other driver’s car registration
The make and model of the car involved
 in the accident
The other driver’s car insurance details
If you have a phone camera, then it is a
 good idea to take pictures of the
 accident.

Take as many as you can and from
 different angles as this will help to
 support any claims that you make.
What To Do If The Car Accident Is
 Serious
If you have been involved in a
 significantly serious accident, then the
 police will be called to the scene. They
 will make their own record of the incident
 and will want to take details from
 everyone involved.

Car injury claim

  • 2.  If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you have grounds to make a car injury claim. A personal injury lawyer will be able to guide you through the legal process once they have assessed the evidence and determined that you have a valid claim for financial compensation.
  • 3. What Information Is Required For A Car Injury Claim If you are looking to make a car injury claim all your paper work needs to be in order. The best way to ensure this is to stay calm and focused. At the scene of the accident, you should always attempt to get the personal details and identification from the other driver.
  • 4. Make sure that you have received the following information: The other driver’s name, home address and telephone number The other driver’s car registration The make and model of the car involved in the accident The other driver’s car insurance details
  • 5. If you have a phone camera, then it is a good idea to take pictures of the accident. Take as many as you can and from different angles as this will help to support any claims that you make.
  • 6. What To Do If The Car Accident Is Serious If you have been involved in a significantly serious accident, then the police will be called to the scene. They will make their own record of the incident and will want to take details from everyone involved.
  • 7. If you have suffered physical injuries, the police will contact the ambulance service so that you are taken to hospital. If you are able to walk away from the accident be sure to make an appointment with your own GP so that any and all types of physical or psychological injuries can be recorded. This information may be needed at a later date if you are going to make a formal claim.
  • 8. How To Proceed Next Get in touch with your insurance company. This is in order to insure that your policy remains valid. They may wish to carry out their own report on this incident.  The next step you will want to take is to find someone who will be able to represent your interests. You will need the help of a specialist solicitor who is trained in all matters of personal injury claims.
  • 9. Contact The Law Society There are a whole host of specialist companies that you can choose but a good place to start is by contacting the Law Society. They have a record of all the solicitors that are members of the Law Society’s personal injury accreditation scheme. They will provide you with details of reputable solicitors in your area. 
  • 10. Another way to narrow down the decision making process is to look for solicitors who work on a “no win, no fee” basis. This means that you will only have to pay the solicitor’s fees if you win your compensation case. If you lose, they do not get paid. Alternatively, you can get in touch with the Citizens Advice Bureau, who will also be able to assist you in finding the appropriate representation for your claim.
  • 11. How Much Can You Make in a Car Injury Claim Case? Once it has been established that there is a legal basis for a claim to be made, the amount of money that is awarded will be measured on the particular facts of each individual case. The amount that you could successfully be awarded will come down to the severity of the injuries caused and the impact that this has had on your life.
  • 12. If you have had to take a lot of time off from work and this has been documented by your doctor, the amount is likely to be significantly more than it you suffered slight bruising. Factors like loss of future earnings will also be taken into consideration.
  • 13. Author Resource Box: Tony Hayes runs an accident claims advice website that is full of useful resources to help accident victims with personal injury advice for moral support, physical help, mental and emotional support resources as well as some of the best accident claims solicitors in the UK.  http://www.accidentclaimscompensation.org
