Foreign Vehicle Car Accident Claims Manchester, Blackburn and Lancashire

Here in the UK, there are an increasing numbers of foreign vehicles now operating on our roads today.

A vehicle traveling outside the country in which it is registered should have the appropriate level of insurance cover which has led to the introduction of the ‘Green Card’ scheme.

At Curtis Law Solicitors, our expert Personal Injury Solicitors provide legal representation to those who have suffered as result of accidents involving foreign or international vehicles.

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident with a foreign vehicle, that wasn't your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

Curtis Law Solicitors offer 100% compensation on a NO WIN – NO FEE basis*.


Information you will need

It is important that you obtain as much information as possible from the other foreign driver including where possible:

  • Driver's name, address and contact  details
  • Vehicle make, model and registration number (in particular the registration numbers of the front (tractor unit) and rear (trailer unit) of a lorry)
  • Any insurance policy details or green card number

The information you collect will assist in identifying who we need to correspond with about your claim.

Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreements

We undertake risk assessments on all such matters and aim to complete the same within 24 hours of receipt of instructions on straightforward matters, or 72 hours of receipt of substantial papers, if applicable. The length of time taken on the risk assessment will vary according to the instructions and papers but we would expect to spend in the region of 30 minutes on straightforward matters. A more accurate timeframe can be given on a  case by case basis if required. We do not charge for the initial risk assessment.

If a matter is accepted it would, as a rule of thumb, be subject to a 25% Success Fee and After the Event Insurance (ATE) Premium deduction. The level of Success Fee and ATE Premium will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the case and the exact Success Fee as a percentage of damages and ATE Premium will be confirmed to you before you sign any retainer with us.

Under the terms of a Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreement, you would ordinarily only have to pay the Success Fee and ATE Premium yourself. If however, you breach the agreement you would then become responsible for our full costs.
