Car Accident Repair Law


Been in a Car Accident? We Can Help

Unfortunately, car accidents happen all the time. If you’ve been involved in one which wasn’t your fault then the insurance company of the person who caused the incident will be responsible for paying for your car accident repair. Law in the UK states that the repairs of the vehicle are down to the liable party involved in the crash so as long as you aren’t to blame for the incident you won’t have to pay a penny.

After all, if you’ve been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your doing, the last thing you want to be worrying about is having to pay for the repairs to your car. Fortunately here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re here to help.
