Claims For You are expert solicitors who specialise in No Win No Fee road traffic accident compensation.

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, whether as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, you may have a road traffic accident claim against the driver responsible or even partly responsible for the accident.

Vehicle users are required by law to have insurance and the accident claim is most likely to be dealt with by the responsible driver’s insurance company. Even if there isn’t a police prosecution, you may still be able to receive accident compensation. Even if the responsible driver is not insured you may still make a road traffic accident claim against the Motor Insurers Bureau – an organisation established to compensate the injured victims of uninsured and untraced drivers.

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, whether as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, you may have a road traffic accident claim…

The injury you sustain in a car accident may be long-term or short term. The injury can also be physical or psychological. If you suffer a long-term injury you may find yourself unable to work for an extended period, and a short-term injury may also affect your work and earnings. The injury might cause you considerable pain and need treatment over a period of time.

Whiplash is a common injury for people involved in a car accident. Our personal injury solicitors are able to handle claims for people who have suffered a range of injuries such as fractured bones, cuts and bruises, serious trauma and even paralysis. You may only start to feel the symptoms of an injury up to a few days after your car accident so be alert to headaches and swelling. A personal injury lawyer at Claims For You will be able to help you with your personal injury claim.

Your personal injury claim

You may incur other costs apart from medical costs or loss of earnings…

If you have had to pay expensive medical bills as a result of your car accident or have suffered a loss of earnings you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. In some cases the driver at fault may not have insurance or cannot be traced. In this case your personal injury compensation claim will be sent to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), who pay out compensation in such circumstances. Personal injury solicitors will assess your claim and decide whether they will proceed with it and what amount you can expect for your personal injury claim.

You may incur other costs apart from medical costs or loss of earnings. For example, your car may need towing from the scene of the accident and you might need to have it repaired. These costs can be included in your personal injury accident claim if necessary. Just contact us today and find out how we can help you.

Case study

Our client, a cyclist, was knocked from his bike as another vehicle pulled out at a junction. The driver alleged her view was blurred by a car turning left. Our client was thrown over the front of the car and was seriously injured. He was taken to hospital and following an emergency operation had a kidney removed. Medical evidence was obtained from consultant urologist to determine the claimant’s level of kidney function.

The defendants denied liability and alleged our client was “Speeding, the third parties view was obscured and that he was riding in the middle of the road”. They were seeking to reduce the claimants claim by 50%. Following a visit to the scene of the accident, photographic evidence and detailed witness statements from five witnesses to the accident were obtained and disclosed. The Defendant subsequently admitted full liability and settled the case.

Road traffic accident FAQs

Here are some common road traffic accident FAQs. If your question is not answered here, please use the form on the left-hand side and one of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

You can claim compensation for the injuries that you have suffered and the effects of the injuries on your daily life. You can also claim for any out of pocket losses or expenses that have been incurred as a result of the accident. The most common losses claimed are loss of earnings, travel costs, medical costs and damage to property or clothing.

Since our firm was established 13 years ago, we prided ourselves on our clients receiving 100% of their compensation. As solicitors, we claim our legal fees from our opponents on top of any compensation and therefore, we gave you the guarantee that our clients receive 100% compensation.

However, following Government changes which came into force on the 1 April 2013, we are now not able to recover all of our legal fees from our opponent and therefore only on successful cases, we do make a small charge from our client’s compensation.

Therefore, if you are successful in your claim there will be a charge of up to 20% (although in many cases it may not be as much as this) of your compensation. If for whatever reason, you are unsuccessful we will make no charge for our work and therefore our agreement remains a No Win No Fee agreement.

We think our small deduction is very competitive and keeping in the tradition of ensuring clients get the maximum, and as much of the compensation as possible.

With our high success rate and the fact that we get 28% more compensation for our clients than the industry average, Claims For You is a great choice when looking for personal injury solicitors.

It is best to obtain photos as soon as possible that show, firstly, the general location of the accident. Also, it may benefit the case if you have details of witnesses to the accident.

Generally, the speed at which your claim may be settled depends on how promptly the Defendant replies and negotiates with us. We find that most claims can be processed within a matter of months. At Claims For You, we pride ourselves on our speedy service as many of our former clients can attest to (please visit our Testimonials page).

It is simple: if you do not succeed in your claim, you pay nothing. For more information please read our No Win No Fee FAQ
