Road Traffic Accidents
Why making a claim ?
Road traffic accidents are unfortunately all too common. If you have been injured in an accident caused by another driver, whether the other driver was speeding, distracted at the wheel or over the drink-drive limit then you could find you are eligible to make a personal injury claim.
Accidents on the roads could injure the driver or passengers of a vehicle, or even other road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. By law you must have a valid car insurance policy in place in order to legally drive a vehicle on the UK’s roads, and if you are injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else, you can pursue a claim against the other driver.
Even if they are uninsured or they flee the scene of the accident and can’t be traced, the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) could help you to claim the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries. There’s no need to feel guilty about making a claim for personal injury compensation, as insurance companies exist to ensure that you are compensated if you are hurt.
What should you do after a road traffic accident?
If you have suffered injuries in a road traffic accident, there are a number of things you can do which will be helpful if you later decide to make a claim. Here are a few examples:
Try to get the details of the other party involved in the accident – if you are injured then police should attend and will normally take details for both parties
If you can, get details of any witnesses to the accident too
If you have a camera with you, or even your mobile phone, try to get some photos of the vehicles involved and the road conditions, if they are relevant (for example, if it’s snowing or wet)
Get medical attention for your injuries – you’ll need to provide a copy of your medical report detailing your treatment in order to make a claim
Take photos of your injuries, if possible
It’s important to point out that you don’t have to do any of these things in order to make a claim, but that they can be helpful.
Please note: We can also help you recover your vehicle damages, storage/recovery costs and provide you with car hire.
