    How to claim driving lesson accident compensation


    When you first learn to drive it can be very thrilling and yet nerve-wracking too. Suddenly you find yourself on the road among all kinds of other drivers in many different vehicles and it can be tough trying to drive responsibly and safely when you have so much going on.

    Fortunately most driving lessons end successfully without anything happening in the meantime. However, in rare instances there have been accidents where someone else has been the cause. For example a learner driver might be going around a roundabout when someone pulls out in front of them, causing an accident in the process.

    Does this mean you can claim driving lesson accident compensation?

    It would depend on the circumstances. Certainly, if there is evidence another driver caused the accident in which you were injured, driving lesson accident compensation would be payable. You would need to begin a case for compensation and be prepared to take it to court. Many cases are settled before a court room is ever reached.

    It can still be daunting to take on a case like this though. As a learner driver you will have far less confidence than anyone else on the road. This is not in itself a bad thing, since you will be more alert and less relaxed in your driving. However, it doesn’t matter how good you are, you can never be certain of the actions other drivers are going to take – even when they are the wrong ones.

    Coming to terms with an accident

    If you have an accident while you are learning to drive it can really knock your confidence. You might also find you are injured in some way, and that can have effects on other parts of your life as well. You could end up being hurt and being unable to do certain things, at least for a while.
