Claiming personal injury compensation after a car accident in the UK is a simple process if you choose a reputable and successful firm of solicitors to act on your behalf. Choose your solicitor very carefully – there are a number of excellent road traffic accident law firms in the UK.

The first thing you will need to do is make contact with a solicitors firm as soon as possible after your car accident. Try to use a firm of solicitors that specialises in the field of road traffic accident claims or use a firm that has a high number of positive client testimonials.

The first thing a solicitor will do is carry out a “risk” assessment of your case – this part of the claims process is for the solicitor to decide if there is a strong likelihood of your case being successful. A personal injury solicitor will want to be sure that your car accident case has good prospects of success before proceeding. The assessment stage is also for your solicitor to estimate the legal costs that are going to be involved in order to ensure you qualify for “no win no fee” representation.

If your chosen personal injury solicitor decides to accept your case, they will usually arrange for you to attend a medical examination so your car accident injury can be assessed – this should be arranged for a convenient time at a location that is as close to your home as possible.

You will be required to give your solicitor details of the event that was responsible for you sustaining a personal injury – once this has been done a letter of claim will be sent to the third party that caused the car accident.

After this stage all you have to do is relax and wait for your solicitor to make sure you are offered the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries.
