At Winns, we understand that making a claim for a road traffic accident can feel like a daunting prospect. After the stress of suffering a non-fault accident, you are suddenly thrust into a complex, and sometimes cold, legal world in order to get the road accident compensation that you are entitled to. That's why we make it our priority to ensure that each and every person who makes a claim for a road traffic accident with Winn Solicitors feels comfortable and informed while we pursue their claim.

We operate on a no win, no fee basis, so, if you have had a non-fault accident and believe you are entitled to road accident compensation, you can claim with peace of mind. We will also provide any necessary medical treatment that you may need, as well as arranging a hire vehicle while handling any repairs to your car.

The Types of Road Traffic Accident

The most common cause of a claim for a road traffic accident is when a driver has had their vehicle struck by another motorist. In truth, however, road accident claims can involve any road user, not just those in cars. You can also be involved in a road traffic accident (and make a claim for a road traffic accident) if you are:

Found them very helpful, they sorted everything out for me with ease. Explained all that was happening and just took control of the situation so I don’t have to worry. 

Tracey Ferguson

The lady who i first spoke to, Diane, was friendly and very patient with me, going through everything. It was lovely to feel like all the pressure was lifted off my shoulders (while) dealing with a car accident. I then spoke to a lovely gentleman after I found out the person who hit me wasn't insured. The car was, by this time, a total mess. He completely calmed me down and explained it wouldn't affect me. I would recommend Winn Solicitors to everyone.

What to do After a Road Traffic Accident

Aside from informing any necessary emergency services, there are several things that you must do immediately following a road traffic accident.

Firstly, share your name and address with everyone involved, being sure to get the same details from the at fault party. Next, swap your insurance details with any other drivers, and make a note of any other passengers or witnesses. You should also document the scene, as well as any damage, with photographs if possible.

Once you have done all of that, you should get in touch with Winns. Contacting us before your insurer means that we will be able to arrange any further medical treatment (such as physiotherapy), repairs to your car, and/or the use of a hire vehicle while pursuing your claim for a road traffic accident.

Call the team at Winns now to start your claim. Your case handler will keep you informed through every step of the process, and handle of all of the details for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need a medical assessment?

As part of our road accident claims procedure, we will arrange for a medical assessment to be carried out at a time that suits you. The medical assessment will help us to find the right treatment, such as physiotherapy, to help you recover, as well as helping us to estimate the amount of compensation that you will be entitled to.

My insurance company has recommended a law firm. Do I have to use them?

When it comes to legal representation for road accident claims, the choice is entirely yours. At Winns however, we recommend that you call us before you contact your insurer. This will allow us to organise your hire vehicle, repairs, and medical treatment more effectively.

Will I have to go to court?

The fact is that the vast majority of cases are settled without the need to go to court. Our task is to secure an admission of guilt from the at fault party, as well as agreeing on an acceptable settlement amount, or road accident compensation. This is handled by ourselves and the at fault party's representatives on your behalf. If, however, an admission of guilt cannot be secured, or the value of the settlement cannot be agreed, then you may be required to attend court. Should that happen, your Winns team will be with you to provide guidance and support throughout the proceedings.

How does no win, no fee work?

With no win, no fee representation from Winn Solicitors, you don't have to worry about the cost of taking your road accident compensation case through the claims procedure. If we settle your case successfully, our fee will be taken from the at fault party's insurer, and if we are unsuccessful then there is no charge to you. This way, everybody has the chance to make a claim for a road traffic accident, regardless of their financial situation.

Can passengers claim compensation?

If you have been a passenger in a car, or have had a passenger in the car, that has been involved in a collision, then you are entitled to seek compensation through a claim for a road traffic accident. Our page on passenger injury claims will give you all the information you need.

Can road accident claims be made if an uninsured driver is at fault?

Yes, you can still make a claim for a road traffic accident if you were struck by an uninsured driver. Instead of seeking to win a settlement taken from the at fault party's insurers, as we usually would, we will help you to get compensation through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB). The MIB was established specifically to benefit the victims of accidents caused by uninsured motorists, and has the backing of all of the major insurers in the UK.

Information You'll Need After a Car Accident

What should you do immediately after a car accident? Well, as with any road traffic accident, no matter how minor or major, there are certain details that you need to gather. If someone has hit your car, and it wasn't your fault, there's some information that you need to get before making a claim:

  • The name of the other road user
  • Their address
  • Their insurance details
  • The name and addresses of any witnesses, such as passengers, bystanders, or other road users
  • Photographs and a description of the scene/any damage

Once you have all of these important details and documents, it's time to call Winns. Get in touch with us before your insurer, either by phone, contact form or Livechat, and we'll take care of things from there.
