Car Accident Claims in Portsmouth
Being involved in a car accident can be a massively traumatic event, with even relatively minor accidents causing both physical and psychological injuries. If you’ve been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. This is not only important for your health and wellbeing, but also for any personal injury claim you could make in the future.
You should also, if possible, ensure you get the contact and insurance details of the other parties involved and of any witnesses, and that you take some photographs. Having as much information as possible could be vital in the event your personal injury claim is contested.
In line with FCA Regulations, you are entitled – if you fulfil the necessary criteria – to make a claim for injury arising from a motor accident in Portsmouth to the Claims Portal. You do not need to instruct a solicitor and can submit a claim free of charge. Our panel solicitors will charge a fee for providing advice and submitting your claim. This fee may be up to 25% of the claim value plus VAT. We will be able to inform you in more detail when you enquire on 02394276981^.
When can I Claim for a Car Accident?
You can make a personal injury claim for a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence whether you’re a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian. Providing the accident happened on a public road or public space such as a footpath or bridleway and wasn’t your fault, it will qualify as a car accident, and you could be entitled to some compensation.
There are extremely strict time limits in place and if you wait too long to make your claim it could potentially be ruled out. It is therefore crucial to speak to an expert solicitor as soon as possible after your accident to have your claim evaluated and to keep within the time limits.

If you were unable to trace the driver involved in the accident, it is crucial that you contact the police within 24 hours.
