Car accidents

Q: Will I have to go to court if I make a personal injury claim?

A: Court proceedings are expensive and so in many cases insurance companies prefer to solve the problem and pay the compensation outside of court. Infrequently, some cases may proceed to court if the insurance company do not believe they were at fault or if they feel that the injuries were exaggerated. In either situation legal advice is essential and we can help you find a specialist personal injury solicitor.

Q: Is there a time limit for claiming compensation after a fatal car accident?

A: There is a three year time limit from the date of the fatal car accident for claiming compensation. This, however, is eligible to some exceptions such as whether the victim of the accident was a child or not. Our specialist fatal car accident solicitors can advise you on any exceptions you may be entitled to and can deal with any claims that are within the three year time limit.

Q: I was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a fatal car accident, can I still claim for compensation?

A: Any passenger, from either the vehicle that is in or is not in fault of the accident, can successfully claim for compensation. However medical evidence is essential. Specialist fatal car accident solicitors are vital to help in your claim and through Caven you can get a quick referral to an expert solicitor in your local area.

Q: Can I still claim for compensation even if I was partly to blame for the accident?

A: It would probably be hard for you to analyse who exactly was at fault in the accident, factors like intoxication or a defective car would most likely change the predicted outcome of the case. It is therefore essential to speak to a specialist solicitor even if you suspect blame on your part.

Q: How much would I have to pay to complete my claim?

A: Caven is a free service and any specialist solicitor that we can transfer you to would work on a no win no fee basis and you can also redeem 100% of your compensation.
