Will I have to have a medical for my car accident claim?
Yes, we need proper evidence of your injuries in order to start a claim against the other driver’s insurance. So we will usually arrange for you to see a doctor who will examine you to assess how badly you have been hurt, and how long your injuries may take to heal. This is especially important in whiplash cases, where some injuries can take a long time to settle down.
Will I have to go to court for a car accident injury claim?
Very few car accident claims ever get to court. In most cases they will be settled between your Claims Direct lawyer and the other driver’s insurance company. In fact, you won’t even have to come to our offices if you don’t want to. While we have offices all over the country so there’s always one near you, we’re happy to talk to you by phone if you prefer.
What sort of car accident injuries can I claim for?
Obviously, car accidents can be very serious, leading to terrible injuries and even deaths. Fortunately, most of the car accident injuries we help with only involve whiplash. This is where a sudden stop or a jolt from behind has damaged the muscles and tendons in the neck. Obviously, this is still a serious injury, but in most cases, people make a full recovery within a few weeks or months. Even if you feel fine right after an accident, it’s normal to start feeling symptoms anything up to 24 hours later, which can include:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders
- Headaches, nausea and dizziness
- Blurred vision
- Memory loss
- Pins and needles in the hands and arms
- Lower back pain
It’s also worth knowing that whiplash injuries can happen in car accidents that happened at speeds as low as five miles an hour. So if you have been hurt in any way in a car crash that was someone else’s fault, talk to one of our friendly advisors today.
What can I claim for?
As well as whiplash, car accidents can lead to lots of other serious injuries, including:
If you have suffered these or any other injuries in a car crash that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Hire cars
- Medical expenses
When you put all of these things together, it can add up to a lot of money. So if the car accident you were hurt in was someone else’s fault, ask us about making a No Win No Fee compensation claim today. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.

What you need to know
Can I make an accident claim?
If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be able to claim compensation.
Our specialists will assess your case on its merits based on the information you give us and will advise you as to how successful your claim for compensation is likely to be.
As for who can make a personal injury claim, if there has been a breach of statutory duty or someone's negligence has caused your injury, you're eligible to bring a claim.
With respect to personal injury claims made by people under 18, the courts will appoint what is known as a 'litigation friend' to claim on that person's behalf. The litigation friend would usually be a parent of family member.
In fatal accident claims, the deceased's financial dependents or personal representatives can claim for loss of dependency, for example if the family's sole breadwinner has died.
