You might want to claim against a learner driver if an accident involving one has caused you to suffer injuries or damage. As when any accident occurs, it can be frustrating for experienced drivers to have to file a claim against a learner driver. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you claim for loss of funds if you have had to take time off.
What sort of injuries could I have suffered?
With car accidents, there are a whole range of injuries that you can suffer.
- Minor injuries. Some injuries like bruises, minor cuts and minor head injuries don’t hurt very badly or result in needing to take time off work. This doesn’t mean that you can’t claim compensation. Just because your injuries aren’t serious doesn’t mean that you aren’t entitled to claim.
- Serious injuries. While some injuries aren’t bad, concussions, whiplash and suffering broken bones are serious injuries that could require down time. This might mean that you aren’t able to go into the office for a few weeks. This affects your ability to work, and if you work on commission, you might lose money.
- Major, life-changing injuries. Injuries to your spinal cord and serious head injuries can result in brain damage and that has drastic consequences for the way in which a person lives their life. Compensation can be claimed for loss of funds and physiotherapy. This means injuries leave the victim unable to work or use certain parts of their body as they used to.
What makes me eligible to claim?
Claiming compensation depends on a few things, with the most important thing being that the accident was someone else’s fault. If a learner driver caused you to be injured or damage your car, you can claim compensation for the damage. The accident needs to have occurred in the last three years in order to claim. You also need to have gone to see a doctor for your injuries to prove you were injured.
