Can I make an accident claim?
Yes, if you’ve had an accident in the last three years that wasn’t your fault. This could be a road traffic accident where you were the driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist or a motorcyclist. Or you may have had a slip, trip or fall when you were out and about. Or you might have had an accident at work. In all these situations, you can make an accident claim. The three year timescale runs once an individual has reached the age of 18 years old. Someone under 18 years old who has an accident still has until they are 21 to make a claim no matter when the accident happened.
How long does an accident claim take?
It depends on the circumstances of your accident claim. A simple claim can be settled in just a few months. A more serious injury will take longer. Our team will advise you.
