How to check if I’m covered
Now that you have your policy number to hand you can give us a call using the phone number stated in your documents, or you can start an online claim.
Our team of experts will then get to work assessing your claim to establish who is at fault, and if you are more likely than not to recover your losses – we call these prospects of success.
What are prospects of success?
If you or any passengers in your vehicle were injured in the incident, we will immediately appoint a specialist injury lawyer to investigate whether or not you may be entitled to compensation.
We will provide advice on any losses you may be able to claim for and the services we can offer (such as replacement vehicle hire).
If we accept your claim, we will review your case and work with the other parties and specialists in order to move your claim forward.
In our experience, most cases reach a settlement without the need to go to court with both sides reaching an agreement.
What does settlement mean?
If an agreement can't be reached, there may be a need to go to court, but don’t worry your lawyer will help you prepare for any court appearance should you need to attend.
