If you have been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, it is your legal right to compensation. However to get that compensation, you have to make a claim.

A lawyer for car accident injury will take care of this process for you and build you a compelling case for compensation, to maximise the chances of claim success.

It goes without saying that while you can make a claim by yourself, this is not advised unless you are a lawyer. The personal injury claims process can be daunting and the last thing you should be doing during your recovery period is processing a claim. You should leave this task to an experienced lawyer. This way, you will have protection from a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement and somebody fighting your corner who has been there many times before.

Building you a strong case for compensation

Other than signing a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee agreement), being interviewed by your lawyer for car accident injury and attending a medical examination, your own input into the claims process will be nil.

This is to give you as much time as possible to recover from your injuries and to ensure that the claims process is followed efficiently. You will not be a dead weight in the claims process though – your interview and attending a medical examination are claim-critical. Without these, building you a strong case would not be possible.

Of course, not all lawyers are created equal. Some are better than others. To ensure you get a top lawyer on your case, follow these simple steps:

  • Ask about your lawyer’s case experience: You want a lawyer on your side who has processed a number of cases that are similar to your own. Most personal injury lawyers specialise in a particular area so in the case of a car accident you want to have a specialist lawyer for car accident injury fighting your corner.
  • Ask about your lawyer’s success rate: The success rate is a percentage of the amount of cases a lawyer wins. The higher the percentage the better and anything over 80 per cent is considered excellent. When you combine a high success rate with case experience, what you have is a lawyer on your side at the top of their game.
