How Much Road Accident Compensation?

Car accident compensation - how much will I receive?

The amount of car accident compensation paid after you've been injured in a road accident that wasn't your fault depends on a handful of factors, including:

  • The extent of your injuries and how serious they are
  • Any emotional trauma suffered
  • Any time taken off work to recover (any 'lost earnings' will be built into the amount of compensation awarded)
  • The disruption to your everyday life

You can also make a claim if you were injured as a passenger in a car or other vehicle.

If you want to get an idea of how much you could claim right away, use our car accident compensation claims calculator.

Your solicitor will be able to give you a more accurate estimate that relates specifically to your circumstances and injuries.

Road accident claims - not just for drivers

Many people assume that road accident claims are only for people involved in car accidents, but this isn't true. If you're injured as a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist or passenger in a vehicle, including buses, you can still make a claim.

As with car accident compensation, the amount of compensation you receive in any of these circumstances depends on the extent of your injuries and the effect they've had on your life.
