It is estimated that around 3 million people in the UK suffer an injury in an accident every year – many of these accidents are caused on the roads.

The accident compensation claims procedure is a simple process providing the victim has a reputable and experienced firm of solicitors on their side. Personal injury law is complicated and there are a number of different factors that influence the outcome of accident compensation claims but, with the help of a personal injury expert, a victim is much more likely to reach a successful conclusion to their case.

If a road traffic accident victim has sustained a personal injury, the first thing they need to do is contact an accident compensation claims law firm. A firm of solicitors that specialises in personal injury law is the best type of company for a car accident victim to choose.

Once the victim has made contact with a personal injury solicitor, they need to provide all of the details relating to their case so that the legal expert can carry out an assessment of their claim. A solicitor will need to determine what the likely outcome of the case will be and how much compensation the victim should be entitled to claim.

Accident compensation claims take time. There is a specific legal process that every solicitor must follow when it comes to making a claim for personal injury compensation. A claim cannot be made over night. Firstly, a letter of claim has to be sent to the party responsible for the claimants injuries – the third party is then given a fixed period in which to respond to the letter. This process usually takes a minimum of three months depending on the strength of your claim.

Once this initial process has been completed it will then be up to the solicitor to prove the case if liability is denied, or negotiate an award amount if liability is accepted.
