    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Car accident caused by someone else


    So you had a car accident caused by someone else. Did you know that you could make a no-win, no-fee* claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline?

    If you have car accident caused by someone else, can you make a compensation claim?

    Throughout the world, car accidents lead to injury, death and disability. Many different factors can affect the extent of injury suffered including make and model of the cars, the speed at impact, road conditions and driver skill. Because of the high risk of accident and the potential for personal injury, drivers are required to have appropriate insurance. This means that their insurance company will pay compensation to any injured 3rd party.

    Comprehensive insurance covers damage to the driver’s own vehicle. Although you will have your own insurance, if the accident was the other driver’s fault, your insurance company will claim from the other driver’s insurance company.

    Bear in mind however, that injury following a car accident caused by someone else is common. The most common claim for personal injury arises from a condition known as whiplash. Whiplash is created by the rapid movement of your head and neck, as a result of being shunted. It causes strain to the soft tissues in the neck and can lead to stiffness and pain. This particular injury can take days, weeks or months to heal and can stop you living a normal life. This is why Accident Advice Helpline can also help you secure compensation for pain and suffering and loss of earnings due to any injury sustained during a car crash.

    However, even if you are injured by an uninsured driver, Accident Advice Helpline can still help you.

    The reason is, here at Accident Advice Helpline we believe that if you have been injured in a car accident and it was not your fault, you should be awarded compensation. In fact as our sponsor, Dame Esther Rantzen says ‘The law states that if you have been injured and it was someone else is to blame…you should be compensated.’
