    True or false? Does driver history count in my car accident claim?


    True or false? Does driver history count in my car accident claim?

    If you’ve had a road traffic accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may be thinking about making a claim, but how do you do this and have you got a valid case?

    Can I make a car crash accident claim?

    If you’ve been involved in a car crash, the incident was not your fault, and it occurred within the last three years, you may be eligible for road accident compensation. You can find out if you have a valid claim by visiting Accident Advice Helpline’s website, which has a very easy-to-use 30-second test. The firm was established in 2000 and has since built a reputation for reliability and professionalism. Your case will be handled by legal experts with expertise in traffic accident claims and in most cases, clients do not even have to go to court.

    Does driver history affect my road accident claim?

    When you contact Accident Advice Helpline they will take a number of factors into consideration and explore your case thoroughly. You will be asked to provide information about the location of the accident, what happened, who was involved, and give any other relevant information you have. When investigating the incident, the legal team will evaluate the case based on the information and evidence available.

    Driver history may be a factor; if a person has been involved in a series of accidents, they have driving convictions or they have been banned from driving in the past, this may impact the case. The legal experts will review the details of the case carefully and witness statements will also form an important part of the evaluation process in the event that the other driver is refusing responsibility.

    What should I do if I want to submit a car crash claim?

    If you’ve had an accident on the road and you want to claim compensation, gather together as much information about the incident as possible. Take down the contact details of other drivers and witnesses, get a statement from any health professionals that treated you and note down the exact time and location of the crash.
