Accident Claim Frequently Asked Questions
We have covered the actual claims process and the reasons for claims in the sections above. These following sections give additional information that relates to starting a claim, and how best to proceed.
Could I Claim Without A Solicitor?
You don’t legally need to use a solicitor to make a personal injury claim. However, how do you know how to proceed with a claim without proper legal guidance? How do you find out which accident claims time limit will apply in your own case? How do you value your claim? Who do you make a claim against?

Do I Need Accident Claim Solicitors Near Me?
You are not legally obliged to use a local legal firm. You are free to select any team of solicitors to process your claim for you. More important than the location of your legal team, is how experienced they are in making similar claims, and what the likelihood of them successfully securing a compensation settlement is. For example, we specialise in injury and accident claims, and can cover the whole of the country.
Do I Need My Injuries Examining If They Were Already Treated?
You may have used an online personal injury claims calculator to get a general idea of how much compensation you could be able to claim. There is nothing wrong with doing this, but to get a more accurate estimate of how much you could claim, you need a solicitor to value your claim. In order for this to be possible, the solicitor will likely ask you to go for a medical examination. They will then use the results of this examination to work out how much compensation you could be eligible for.
