Following an initial review of your case, our Personal Injury team will discuss whether we think you are eligible for compensation. If we believe that you are eligible, we will gather further information and request information from you regarding the road traffic accident to move forward with your claim.

How Long Will My Road Traffic Accident Claim Take?

The length of your road traffic accident claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether the opponent admits that they are at fault for your injuries.

Your claim may take a longer time if you have been involved in a hit and run accident where the driver is uninsured or untraceable.

What To Do If You Are Involved In A Road Traffic Accident?

Gather as much evidence as possible if you have been involved in a road traffic accident as it will strengthen your claim. These include:

  1. Taking photographs or videos at the accident scene
  2. Ensure you seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  3. Writing down details of any witnesses
  4. Write down the details of the other driver – including their contact details, vehicle registration number, insurance policy number.
