How much will it cost to make a claim?
The first interview with a DBH motor accident solicitor is an obligation free appointment so if you decide not to proceed, it won’t cost you anything.
There are generally no upfront fees. You will be liable for you own disbursements. Disbursements are out of pocket expenses (like medical report fees) that support your claim. If you are unable to fund your own disbursements we can assist you in finding the right disbursement funder for you.
We will explain how fees are calculated and keep you updated throughout the process.
How does the claim process work?
Firstly, we will assess the details of your car accident and let you know if you have a realistic case. This initial consultation is free with no obligation to proceed. We will then contact the insurance company and notify them of your claim. The insurance company will then advise their position regarding partial or full responsibility. We will collect the relevant facts to prove your motor accident claim. This includes documentation such as medical reports, treatment expenses, and wage loss details. We will then negotiate a settlement and arrange for you to receive the compensation payout.
If you go direct to the insurance company it is standard practice that they will offer you a minimal settlement. There are many cases we have settled where the final amount was tens of thousands above the offer made by the MAC to our clients before they decided to instruct DBH to act on their behalf.
If we don’t win your case, there is no fee.
