Car Accident Claim

Had a car accident that wasn't your fault? Porter Wood Law Solicitors can help you get the maximum compensation you deserve.


Car accidents are unfortunate but common.
Whether it’s a minor bump at a traffic light or a serious collision with long-lasting health repercussions, being in a car accident can be a traumatic experience for drivers and passengers.
Some people injured in a car accident need long-term medical care to recover; people involved in more serious accidents may need a life-changing level of care. Depending on the injury, it might not be possible to return to work following a car accident, either in the short or long-term.
For these reasons, receiving compensation for a car accident that wasn’t your fault can help relieve the financial burden of not being able to work and receiving on-going medical care.

The following examples are common causes of accidents on UK roads:

  • Drivers under the influence of drink or drugs
  • Driving above a safe and/or legal speed limit
  • Careless or reckless driving
  • Failing to wear seatbelts, which can cause injury to others
  • Inexperienced, recently qualified drivers
  • Failing to pay due care and attention to road or traffic conditions
  • Failure to pay due care and react to weather conditions
  • Failure to properly maintain a vehicle – brakes, lights, tyres etc.
  • Inadequate training for the size/type of vehicle being driven
  • Loss of control of a vehicle

All these scenarios can cause you or your family to be in a car accident that wasn’t your fault.


Car accidents, no matter how small, are never pleasant. As well as physical injury, they can cause psychological distress and put a huge financial strain on the people involved.
Costs that can arise from being in a car accident include:

  • Costs incurred as a result of a car accident include, but aren’t limited to:
  • Repair of a vehicle or any other equipment affected by the crash
  • Hire car or public transport expenses if you are left without a vehicle
  • Medical treatments for any injuries sustained, such as physiotherapy
  • Policy excess payments – which are often hundreds of pounds
  • Damage caused to other property as a result of the crash

Receiving compensation for a car accident can help pay for some of these costs and reduce the strain on your finances.


This depends on the circumstances of your accident. Usually, compensation for a car accident comes from insurance, rather than an individual.
Your solicitor will speak to you about your specific case and can give you information on who will be paying your compensation.
