The road traffic accident claims process in Northern Ireland

The process is unique to the circumstances surrounding the accident. However, the first step is always to speak with us about what happened. We will advise you at this early stage and you can decide what to do next. If you instruct us with your case, we will put a plan in motion that is designed to achieve the best outcome possible.

Your road traffic accident claim might include steps such as:

  • Gather evidence that may be useful in your case
  • Assemble a team of expert witnesses such as medical consultants and consultant engineers
  • Arrange vehicle repair or replacement through one of our vetted partners
  • Deal with the other party or parties involved on your behalf
  • Negotiate a settlement or list your case for Hearing

This is by no means an exhausted list. Each case may be different, however, your solicitor is an expert and well placed to advise you through each step. You will be kept up to date on your case throughout and every reasonable step will be taken to get a speedy outcome.
