    Accident on the roads


    Claiming for an accident on the roads

    Estimates show that there are some 40,000 drivers involved in a car accident on the roads every year. It’s no surprise then that some 30,000 people per year suffer from personal injuries as a result. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we deal with hundreds of claims for an accident on the roads every month. The most common injury sustained in car accidents is whiplash, but there can be many other consequences, ranging from the minor to the very severe, or even fatal.

    We all have a responsibility to drive carefully and responsibly, and all motorists are required by law to hold a valid insurance policy. This enables you to claim against the other road user for personal injury if their negligence has led to an accident on the roads in which you lost a loved one, or which has caused you physical, financial or emotional suffering.

    Even if your accident was caused by an unknown or uninsured driver, we can still help you get the proper recompense for your loss, injuries and inconvenience. The Motor Insurers Bureau exists to cover the costs of uninsured driver compensation claims against innocent parties like you.

    There’s no shame in making a claim for compensation. Injuries caused in car accidents can have long-lasting, or sometimes even lifelong, effects and you’re entitled to have your costs covered and to have access to the best possible care to help you deal with your physical or psychological injuries.

    What about out‑of‑pocket expenses?

    Road traffic accidents are not only the cause of a number of injuries, but can also result in a variety of other expenses. You may have been forced to take time off work to recover. If so, you may also be able to claim for loss of earnings. A letter from your employer is usually sufficient proof, or you can support your claim with your accounts if you are self-employed.

    You are also entitled to claim a number of other expenses such as:

    • Travelling costs to and from medical appointments
    • Childcare costs
    • In the case of a fatality, funeral and probate costs
    • Any other cost that has been caused by the accident

    Your solicitor will explore all the circumstances of your case and will then be able to explain to you in detail what you can claim for and what evidence you will need.
