Claiming vehicle repairs in your car accident claim
Our solicitors (lawyers) can take away all the hassle of dealing with your vehicle repairs claim after a road traffic accident. Things happen quickly after a road accident. You will probably already have been called by insurers for the responsible driver, offering all sorts of things and maybe even cash up front instead of making an accident insurance claim through a solicitor.
Whatever you do, don’t accept their offers of ‘help’ without speaking to our qualified traffic accident lawyers first to be sure that you’re getting a fair deal.
Insurance companies are, in our experience, more interested in cutting costs and getting the best deal for their shareholders, not you.
How our car accident claims lawyers will help with your accident insurance claim
By contacting us as soon as possible after your car accident you ensure that our solicitors have the best chance of securing the maximum settlement for you.
Where appropriate, we can arrange for independent expert engineers to inspect your vehicle. If it’s a ‘write off’ (i.e. worth less than the repair costs) we will ensure that you receive a fair price, not haggle with you like insurers do.
If your vehicle is repairable, and again, where appropriate, your solicitor will arrange for it to be repaired at your preferred garage, not one appointed by the insurers you’ve never heard of (unless that’s what you want). That way, you can be confident that your vehicle will be in good hands.
How do I get around while my vehicle is off the road?
While your vehicle is off the road, where appropriate, your solicitor will arrange replacement vehicle hire for you, which will be similar to your own vehicle, so minimising any inconvenience. If necessary, we will also recover any policy excess, and in some cases, the diminution in value of your vehicle after it has been repaired.
