    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    The most common car accident excuses: ““I didn’t realise how fast I was going”

    Unfortunately for some reckless drivers, ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law. Speed limits are put in place for a very good reason: to prevent people from being injured in a road traffic accident. Just because a driver doesn’’t know how fast they were going, it doesn’’t mean they aren’’t at fault. If you’’ve been hurt because someone was speeding, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you make a road traffic accident claim and receive the compensation you deserve.

    Injuries from a car accident

    While some car accidents can be fatal, others can leave lasting damage that can seriously affect your life. Injuries in road traffic accidents can include whiplash, broken bones and head trauma. Even if you think you’r’e okay and nothing hurts after a collision it’s important that you get checked by a doctor right away.

    What if you don’’t know who did it?

    You can still make an untraced driver claim if you didn’’t see the speeding car or if it was a hit and run. Try to gather as many witnesses and details as you can, as you have a better chance of winning with more information about the conditions and vehicle involved.

    What if the driver is uninsured?

    It is against the law for anyone behind the wheel to be uninsured. Though it may seem like a veritable nightmare to claim compensation from an uninsured driver, there are ways we can help you get the compensation you are due.

    Injured while on a bicycle

    Cyclists are most at risk from speeding motorists, due to the fact they have little protection and they are sharing the road with the dangerous drivers. A fast driver may not see or react in time to avoid hitting or knocking a cyclist off of their bike. If you’’ve been injured on your bike and it isn’’t your fault, we can help you claim bicycle injury compensation.
