Car accident claims
Car accidents can be caused for a number of reasons with dangerous or negligent driving being the most common. This can include; speeding, drink driving or general lack of concentration through using a mobile phone, for example. Whether you were driving or were a passenger in another vehicle, you could still be entitled to claim.
Road traffic accidents can be caused by poorly maintained roads, in which case your local council could be liable. The condition of the vehicle you were driving is also important. If this is a company car, your employer could be held liable, especially if the vehicle is damaged or in need of repair.
We can also help if you’ve been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. In these cases your claim will be submitted to the Motor Insurance Bureau, which was specifically set up to assist victims involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. A small fraction of every motor insurance policy in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, plus contributions from the major car insurers, is used to support and pay compensation to victims of uninsured drivers. Any claims made under this scheme must be presented within 9 months of the accident.
Road traffic accidents can result in a number of different injuries that can have a huge impact on a person’s everyday life, ranging from minor bruising to broken bones. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident and results in limited movement in the neck and shoulder region, with severe cases often requiring physiotherapy sessions.
