Whether you are a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian we can help you – and not just for accidents involving cars, but also buses, coaches, vans, lorries, motorbikes, and cyclists. In simple terms, if blame can be found then you could be able to make a car crash claim.
How to Make a Car Accident Claim
Making a car accident claim in Sunderland is made easy with our simple, yet effective approach to the process. We encourage people to call us and have a quick telephone appraisal with our solicitors.
Based on what you tell us, we will tell you if we believe you are due compensation.
We operate on a no win no fee agreement meaning you can get compensation without having to pay expensive legal fees.
Car Accident Claims Sunderland
As with any personal injury claim, the claimant will need to prove with the aid of a solicitor that another driver or person was responsible for the accident. In most cases this will mean we will look to apportion blame to another driver.
We will then work with the third party insurance companies in order to come to a car accident compensation settlement amount – which will usually be settled outside of court.
In order to stand a high chance of success our solicitors will help you to gather names and addresses of any witnesses, photography, and police or medical records where necessary.
In addition to reclaiming costs on vehicle damage, we will also look to seek car crash compensation for your injuries and any associated expenses.
Car Crash Claims – Why Our Solicitors?
Drivers who attempt to settle their own claims directly with an insurance company will tend to struggle against these large businesses with their expensive lawyers. Any insurance company will always try to minimise the amount of accident compensation that they have to pay out, and are very adept at doing this with private individuals and drivers.
By using a car accident claim solicitor in Sunderland such as us, we have the experience and knowledge required to maximise your claim and will often recover much more compensation that is typically paid out.
We make access to justice simple, easy, and effective. Not only that, but our team is one of the friendliest in the area and are renowned for their high success rates and large compensation amounts received.
How Much Car Accident Compensation?
Car accident compensation in Sunderland follows the same guidelines as per the rest of the United Kingdom. Any payments are designed to get you back to where you were before the accident, as well as providing additional payments for any pain and suffering.
We will work to recover the maximum amounts of damages possible and permitted by UK law, of which there are guidelines in place to help car crash solicitors make effective claims for judgement.
The JSB (Judicial Studies Board) have defined standard amounts which can range from £1,000 to £100,000 depending on the severity of the victim’s injury. When you call us we should be able to give you some indication of where your claim falls within the set amounts.
When Will You Receive Car Crash Compensation?
Once the claim is settled, we will then initiate payments from the relevant insurance companies. In most cases the compensation will be paid straight to your bank account, and in other cases it may be held with us until we are permitted to release the funds.
Either way, when pursuing car accident claims our solicitors work tirelessly to ensure that they are processed as quickly as possible. They are amongst the most common that our lawyers have to deal with so are typically resolved swiftly once the third party accepts blame via their legal representative and insurance company.
