At Fault Claims

Claiming Compensation

You are only entitled to claim compensation up to 3 years from the date of your accident (or 16th Birthday if you were a minor at the time), after this date you will no longer be able to claim.

When you believe that you are responsible for an accident you may have more options than you think. Most people think of responsibility for an accident as clear cut, it is either your fault or it is not. Which sometimes it is, however, it is possible to have a ‘split in liability.’ This means that fault for the accident is apportioned as a percentage between you and the other driver, for example 50/50 or 70/30. At Khan Law we will look at the circumstances of the accident and attempt to get the best possible resolution. We have previously acted on behalf of a client who exited a giveway and was being held completely at fault for the accident. We managed to settle his case on a 70/30 basis which means that he was 70% responsible for the accident and was therefore entitled to claim compensation.

At Khan Law we are committed to assisting you in claiming compensation for your injury. For some of our clients this is the first time that they are claiming compensation. However, we will ensure that we explain the process in full to you to make your customer journey as smooth as possible. In fact, we have highlighted our process below, just so you can see for yourself.
