The Car Accident Compensation Claims Process

We will start by giving you a free initial consultation so that you can ask any questions that you have and so that we can give you some idea of the next steps to be taken.

If you ask us to conduct your claim for you, we will start gathering information about the incident. This will be particularly important if the other driver’s insurance company does not admit liability.
Our work will include looking at the scene of the accident and identifying exactly what happened, going through the police accident report, interviewing witnesses and assessing the damage to your vehicle.
If any vehicle involved in the accident was uninsured or a hit-and-run driver was involved, we will liaise with the Motor Insurance Bureau.

At the same time, we will arrange for you to see our trusted medical experts who have extensive experience in evaluating injuries caused by road traffic accidents. Medical reports will be prepared detailing the extent of your injuries and giving an assessment of your likely recovery.

Putting Together Your Case For Compensation

As well as detailing the facts of the incident and outlining the extent of your injuries, we will put together financial information to support your claim.

This will include details of any loss of earnings and the expenses that you have incurred because of the accident.

We will also work with your medical experts to establish what medical treatment, rehabilitation and future assistance you will need to help you with your injuries.

We never lose sight of the most important aspect of the process -ensuring that you are well-cared for and that you are provided for in a way that enables you to live as comfortably as possible with your injuries, both now and in the future.

Each of our team genuinely cares about the wellbeing of our clients and the outcome of their cases. Because of this, you can be sure that you will receive the best possible representation. We will put together a comprehensive claim on your behalf .  You will receive compensation for your pain and suffering as well as for your financial expenses and care needs.

“I instructed Michael McGee to deal with a car accident claim. I found his assistance and experience excellent and the outcome of my claim was great. If I ever require a solicitor in the future I will look no further than Michael McGee.”

Can I Claim Without A Witness To My Accident?

How Do I Start A Car Accident Compensation Claim?If there are no witnesses to your accident, you may be wondering if you can still bring a claim.

While you will need to be able to prove that your accident was someone else’s fault, evidence is usually available in more than one way. While witnesses are useful, you may still be able to bring a successful claim without one.

At McGee Solicitors, we have many years of experience in obtaining excellent settlements for personal injury claims. If you give us a ring, we can talk through what has happened and discuss the situation with regard to witnesses.

In our experience, there are often other sources of evidence that can establish fault on the part of the other side and the absence of a witness should not stop you from pursuing a compensation claim.

Bringing Your Car Accident Compensation Claim

Our team are expert negotiators and we are often able to settle claims without the need to go court. We will push to get you the best possible result.  Ensuring that you are fully compensated for all of your losses.

If the other driver’s insurance company admits liability, we may be able to obtain an early settlement on your behalf. We may also be able to arrange interim compensation for you, for example, to cover loss of earnings since the accident.

In the event that your case does proceed to trial, you can be sure of robust representation by a barrister who has in-depth expertise in respect of road traffic accident claims.

It is usually the case that when you win damages for a personal injury claim following a car accident, the other driver’s insurance company will pay your legal costs. In addition to this, we guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation. Some law firms or claims handlers deduct a sum of money from any compensation they obtain. We strongly believe that you are entitled to every penny of the compensation that is awarded to you or agreed upon with the other side.  This is why we will never make a deduction from the amount you receive.

“I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he provided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.”
