Road traffic accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury claims being made. In most cases they can be sorted out relatively quickly. However, there are some instances when all sorts of hidden complications can arise. This article will look at how you can improve your chances of winning compensation when you’re injured by another driver and what things you’ll need to consider when searching for Bristol accident claim solicitors with the right skills and experience to help with your case.
Bristol accident claim solicitors for car accidents
Here’s how it should work. If you’re involved in an accident you will swap insurance details with the other driver. If there is blame attached to the accident then the insurance company of the driver deemed to have been at fault will pick up the tab.
Often it will be pretty clear who was at fault in which case you may receive a pretty quick offer. However sometimes it can be more complicated for a number of reasons.
What if the other driver has no insurance
When we venture out onto the roads we’re all required by law to carry third party car insurance to cover damaged caused to any other driver. However, not everyone is responsible and there is an alarming number of uninsured drivers out on the roads at the moment, and if you’re injured by one, you may find yourself in a position where you’re not able to claim anything.
However, if you find yourself in this predicament you may be able to claim compensation through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau which was set up for just this kind of eventuality. They will assess all claims that you make.Open Claim Calculator
What if you are hit by a stolen car?
Further complications arise in the unlikely event that you are injured by a stolen vehicle. If this happens you may well be entitled to claim compensation through the owner’s insurance. Get advice from an expert to find out if that is the case.
What if nobody was at fault
Often accidents don’t seem to be anybody’s mistake. You may not feel either driver was particularly to blame, in which case there would be nobody at fault and nobody to claim compensation off. However, it’s always worth running the matter by the eyes of an experienced personal injury lawyer as they may be able to show you that there is a claim to be made.

Any claim is likely to bring it’s own set of complications which is why it’s a good idea to work on the basis of no-win, no-fee*. This means that if you do not win your case you won’t have to pay a single penny.
