    Car accident claims

    Car accidents are a common occurrence on Scottish roads. The most common reasons for car accidents include

    • dangerous or negligent driving
    • drunk driving
    • using a mobile phone whilst driving
    • general lack of driver concentration

    Whatever the reason for your car accident, and whether you’re the driver or the passenger, if it wasn’t your fault, you are entitled to make a financial compensation claim.

    Apart from claiming for the damage to your vehicle, you may also have been injured in your car accident.

    At Watermans, we employ a team of expert road traffic collision experts, who are here to offer you straightforward legal advice.

    Making a claim

    How do I make a car accident claim?

    All road users can claim for compensation after an accident, whether you are a driver, a passenger, a cyclist or a pedestrian injured by another car, a motorbike or even a horse. Anyone involved in a road traffic accident through no fault of their own has a right to be compensated for medical costs, loss of earnings and any other expenses incurred due to the accident.

    If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident within the last three years that wasn’t your fault, you have the right to pursue a compensation claim against the responsible party.

    The first step in making your car accident claim is to contact us for a free no obligation consultation. As soon as we’ve got the details, our car accident solicitors will be able to confirm whether you’re entitled to a claim. Our specialist car accident solicitors will act on your behalf to seek the compensation you deserve, be it for injuries sustained or damage to your vehicle.

    Plus, we operate on a no win no fee basis, meaning that if we don’t succeed in winning your claim, you don’t have to pay any solicitors fees.

    It is also important to remember that it is crucial to instruct a solicitor to represent you for a number of reasons. First and foremost, if you are represented by a car accident solicitor, the insurance company won’t attempt to under settle your claim in exchange for dismissing the case.

    Another reason for hiring a personal injury solicitor is that they’re knowledgeable and can understand your unique circumstances – meaning you’ll get the best car injury compensation package possible.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for a car accident?

    The amount of compensation you’ll be able to claim for a car accident injury can vary drastically. This is because all accidents are different. There are, of course, several different types of injuries that you could potentially sustain. Most injuries from car accidents may be relatively minor, though they will still cause pain, discomfort, and inconvenience, whereas some may be serious enough to be life-changing.

    In terms of general damages, you are awarded for the pain, suffering, and loss of earnings you have suffered as a result of the accident. When injuries are more significant, car accident compensation amounts are a lot of higher because of the impact the injuries will have on your lifestyle, work and even personal relationships. In such cases, the compensation received will support you throughout recovery and long after your claim to make sure you receive the appropriate treatment, support, and rehabilitation.
