What Is The Average Payout For A Car Accident Claim?
Expert Car Accident Personal Injury Solicitors Belfast
We are Solicitors that specialise in Whiplash Injury Claims, and we can help you claim compensation at no cost to you.
At McGee Solicitors we are experts in representing clients in whiplash compensation claims. Our team has the expertise to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident and it was not your fault, you are entitled to bring a claim for compensation. This will take into account your pain and suffering as well as any financial losses you have incurred.
What Is The Average Payout For A Car Accident Claim?
The principle behind compensation is to put you back into the position you would have been in, had the accident not happened. At McGee Solicitors we strongly believe that you should be fully compensated for your injuries and that you should have security for the future if your pain and suffering are ongoing.
Unlike some solicitors or claims handlers, we guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation. This is because we genuinely care about our clients and we strongly believe that this is your money and you are entitled to all of it by way of compensation for everything that you have been through.

“Having very little insight into the process of claims for road traffic accident I didn’t know how I could or even would claim. Unfortunately I sustained injuries as a result of the trauma from the accident and was encouraged by my nephew to let McGee Solicitors undertake my claim. I was guided by the firm to the process and was updated on a regular basis regarding status of claim and always given clarification and information. I would encourage anyone who like me was ‘green’ to the process of claiming let McGee Solicitors represent them. I can only thank them right now for their help and the positive outcome of my claim.”
Assessing The Amount Of Your Claim
We will talk through the extent of your claim with you to explain exactly what you are entitled to. We have medical experts who will prepare reports assessing your injuries and the likely ongoing effect.
This will help us establish how much you may be entitled to.
If you would like to gain some idea of the compensation payment you could achieve, you can use our Accident Compensation Calculator.
“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.”
The amount you receive will depend upon the severity of your injuries and what they are likely to mean for you in the future. The Judicial College, which trains and supports judges, issues guidelines as to the amount of compensation that should be awarded for a full range of injuries and we can advise you what the guidelines are for your particular injury.
By way of example, the Judicial College guidelines in respect of whiplash suggest the following payment bands:
- Where a whiplash injury heals within three months: £1,000-£2,300;
- Where a whiplash injury takes between three months and a year to heal: £2,300-£4,000;
- For whiplash injuries that heal in one to two years: £4,080-£7,410;
Serious whiplash injuries that cause long-term disability and that may be combined with other injuries would result in substantially higher payments.
It is often the case that someone who has sustained injury in a car accident will have several different types of injury and these will all be taken into account.
It is therefore difficult to suggest the average figure without knowing exactly what has happened to you. Our team are very experienced in looking at individual situations and advising on the amount that you could expect to receive. If you would like to discuss your injuries and receive some guidance, we would be happy to hear from you.
