If you have suffered an injury following a car accident that wasn't your fault, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The amount of car accident compensation you are eligible to receive can vary a great deal depending on different factors e.g. the extent of your injuries, the circumstances of the accident and so on.
It therefore can be difficult to predict the compensation payout amounts until we know more about you, your accident and your injury. There are some estimated payout amounts we can provide as a guide which can better illustrate how much you could be awarded.* Here are some figures to illustrate what you could be awarded below:

Road traffic accidents are unfortunately all too common and can often lead to those involved suffering a serious and debilitating road traffic accident injury, such as whiplash. If you have been involved in such an accident, Cute Injury can guide you through the process of making a car accident claim and help you win compensation. Whether you suffered a road traffic accident injury as the driver, passenger or as a victim of a hit and run incident, you could be entitled to make a road traffic accident compensation claim.

Many people who suffer an injury following a road traffic accident need to take time off work. Cute Injury can help you claim compensation to assist you with loss of earnings, medical treatment, or loss of amenity. Even if the accident was partly your fault you may be entitled to claim damages. Compensation can protect you from the financial burden of an injury and allows victims and their families to concentrate on rehabilitation. Even if you have no physical injury you could still be entitled to make a claim for any psychological difficulties or financial problems after an accident - like shock, depression and post-traumatic stress. At Cute Injury we have one aim in mind – to provide you with the best level of service possible to ensure your road traffic accident compensation claim is successful and you receive the financial help you are entitled to after suffering an injury.

In order to process an injury claim following a road traffic accident you, first of all, need to be over 18. If you are under 18 then you will need to have someone who is over 18 to act on your behalf - usually this is a family member or friend. You will need to supply full details of the car accident - how it happened, where it happened etc... - as well as the details of the third party involved (the person who was liable for the accident). Don't worry if you don't know the third party's details as claims can sometimes be made through the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB), who pay compensation in cases where the negligent party cannot be traced.
