Frequently Asked Questions

What will it cost me?

We operate on a NO WIN NO FEE basis. We claim all our cost from the Third Party.

Am I entitled to a replacement vehicle?

Yes. If your vehicle is deemed to be UN-roadworthy then a replacement vehicle will be provided at no cost to yourself.

What steps should I take immediately after the accident?

You should take as much information and supporting evidence from the scene of the accident to help validate your non-fault claim. This includes taking photographs and the contact details of any witnesses present. We also advise you to keep a record of all the injuries suffered and keep a track of them on a regular basis.

How long after the accident can I claim?

It is always beneficial to begin your claim as soon as possible after the accident. If for some reason you are unable to do this, then you have up to 3 years from the date of the accident to register your claim. If you develop an illness due to the accident after the 3 years have passed, then you can still claim up to 3 years after the date you were diagnosed.

I feel I have a claim. What steps should I take next?

If you believe you have a claim for compensation, then please use our online claim form to submit your query.
One of our experienced claims handlers will then contact you for a free consultation.

How do I know if I can make a claim?

This is relatively simple. If you have been injured by someone who should have taken a reasonable amount of care for your safety but they do not, then you are entitled to make a compensation claim. This can include another driver, a colleague at work or an employer and includes injuries physical or psychological.
