Accidents on the UK’s roads are possible anywhere at any time, and despite improvements in road safety, there are still hundreds of fatalities on the roads every year. Whether you have been injured whilst driving, whilst travelling as a passenger in a car, whilst on a bike or even whilst crossing the road, you could get road injury compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline. Being informed could help you to decide whether or not to make a personal injury claim. Many people don’t realise that it’s possible to make a claim whether you have suffered serious, life-changing injuries or more minor injuries.
What caused your road traffic accident?
If your accident was caused by a dangerous driver, there are a number of things that could have gone wrong. Perhaps the driver was speeding or tailgating in wet or icy conditions, or perhaps they failed to stop at an amber light and knocked you over. It could be that their vehicle wasn’t roadworthy and the brakes or something else failed, causing an accident. Or maybe they were distracted at the wheel by using their mobile phone or eating.
Whatever has happened, if somebody else is to blame for your accident you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation, so it’s a good idea to seek road injury compensation advice as soon as possible after your accident. Don’t forget that there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so don’t miss out by waiting around too long wondering if you could claim.
