What is the time limit for a road accident claim?
Under normal circumstances, you will usually have three years from the date of the accident to pursue road traffic accident compensation.
There are some exceptions to this general rule. This includes where you are pursuing a claim on behalf of a child or for someone who lacks mental capacity.
If you are making a claim on behalf of a child, you have until they turn 18 years old to make a claim. When they turn 18, they can make a claim for themselves until they turn 21.
If you are claiming on behalf of someone who lacks mental capacity, such as if they have suffered a brain injury, there are no time limits.
Do I have to go to court to make a traffic accident claim?
Many road traffic accident claims can be resolved without the need for court intervention. This means our solicitors can minimise stress and settle claims quicker.
There may be scenarios where a defendant or their insurer may deny liability for the accident or disagree with the compensation offered. This is where it may be necessary to head to court to reach a settlement. If you do need to go to court to reach a settlement, our team in Salisbury can offer support throughout the process.
I’m unhappy with my solicitor, can I transfer my road traffic accident claim to Novum Law?
We are often contacted by individuals who have started a car accident claim with another firm but are not happy with the results. This may be because the claim is taking too long, or they are unsatisfied because they are not satisfied with the value of the compensation they have been offered.
If you have started medical negligence claim with a different firm and are not happy with the results, our team can give you a second opinion. We have successfully taken on many claims from other firms and have plenty of experience in settling claims and securing high settlements.
