If you have been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that you will be able to claim compensation. We are here to provide all the helpful advice and support you need.
No win, no fee is a term that you may have heard many times. But what does it actually mean?
Firstly, don’t worry. It’s not designed to catch you out. A no win, no fee arrangement simply means you won’t pay a penny if your compensation claim is unsuccessful.
Here’s how it works. You will usually be asked to take out an insurance policy that will protect you against paying your legal fees if your case is unsuccessful, so your solicitors will recover their costs through insurance. You pay nothing.
Your claim will be handled by specialist solicitors who will aim to claim maximum compensation for you. If your claim is successful and you are awarded compensation, there will be a pre-agreed percentage deducted from your compensation, this is typically around 25% and will always be agreed with your solicitors upfront. There are no upfront costs.
With our free initial advice from claim experts, finding out whether you might have a claim is quick, easy and completely free.

Experiencing a car accident is a shocking and hugely traumatic ordeal. When you are left with injuries as well, it’s a lot to come to terms with. That’s especially true if the accident wasn’t your fault. Every accident is unique and can involve several different people: drivers, passengers, cyclists and even pedestrians. But it’s important to know that if you were involved in a car accident, you are most likely entitled to compensation.
In 2018 there were 160,597 casualties reported on Britain’s roads (Department for Transport). Unfortunately many car accidents can be attributed to dangerous driving, poor road maintenance or vehicles that have not been properly looked after. Whether you suffered minor whiplash or sustained more serious injuries, we can help you to get the compensation you deserve – even if you were partially at fault.

You’ve seen the television adverts. There are several personal injury companies out there. That’s because – unfortunately – a lot of accidents happen that could have been prevented. But with us, you are never just a statistic. No two accidents are quite the same and each person who calls us is treated as an individual – with compassion and respect. Just the way it should be.
We also understand that seeking compensation can sometimes feel daunting. But if the treatment you have received feels wrong, you deserve clear advice to help put it right. So let us make you a promise: calling us doesn’t mean you have to start a claim. Maybe you have questions about your legal rights. Or perhaps you want to know more about the process of seeking compensation. We are here to give you free advice that will make things clearer. And we will never pressure you to make a claim that you feel unsure of.
That’s a promise.
The specific amount of compensation you receive depends on several things – such as the severity of your injuries, loss of income and whether you have been able to return to your chosen occupation. We also consider the psychological impact of your injury as well as any costs you have incurred while receiving treatment, replacing your vehicle or making changes to your lifestyle.
Because every accident is different, it’s difficult to put a financial value on a car accident claim – especially when it’s caused serious injuries or lots of disruption to your personal life.
One thing you can count on is that we work with a hand-selected panel of expert solicitors who are highly experienced at resolving car accident claims like yours. You can be confident that they will do everything in their power to make sure you receive the compensation that you deserve.

If we think you have a case, we will offer to put you in touch with a solicitor from our panel of experts who is experienced with car accident claims like yours.

If your case is accepted and you want to go ahead, your solicitor will take care of the legal process from start to finish – keeping you informed throughout every stage. You will never lose control. The duration of the process depends how complicated your case is and how much evidence we can gather with you. Clear-cut cases can be resolved in as little as a few months – and you may be entitled to immediate financial support while you wait for a final settlement. We are here for you.
You may be wondering where the money for your compensation comes from. With car
accident claims, it all depends on who was at fault for the accident that you were involved in. That could be the driver of another vehicle, an employer that had not checked that a business vehicle was safe to drive, or even a local council if the road you were driving on was unsafe.
However it’s important to note that it’s extremely unlikely that your compensation will come from an individual’s personal finances. That’s a big relief for some of our customers. Instead it’s the insurer of the person at fault that covers the bill. Even if the driver responsible for the accident was uninsured, the Motor Insurers’ Bureau will cover your claim if it’s successful.
What if you were partially at fault for the accident? You may still be able to claim. That’s because with traffic accidents, it’s common for more than one party to have made a mistake. If you would like to know more about where the money for your compensation comes from, please call our friendly UK advisers on 0800 0511 511. We are here to support you.
It’s best to start your claim as soon as you can.
Thanks to our experienced advice team, finding out if you are entitled to compensation after a car accident could be as simple as making one short phone call. We understand that seeking compensation may be something you have been putting off while you recover from your accident and come to terms with what happened. But by law you must begin any claim you wish to make within certain timeframes of your car accident taking place. Following a serious accident, we understand that the claims process can be difficult to face.
But knowing where you stand legally can help to bring you some closure on your accident.
And it’s always best to get things moving as soon as you can while you can remember as much as possible about what happened. No matter what, we will always do everything we can to make sure your compensation experience is simple, straightforward and compassionate.
