Five myths about claiming for car accident injuries
Accident Advice Helpline are experts when it comes to dealing with claims for car accident injuries. Here are 5 common misconceptions when it comes to making a claim for compensation:
1. You can’t claim against an uninsured driver
The fact is, you can. Just because the responsible party hasn’t protected themselves with insurance, doesn’t mean you should suffer. Luckily, the Motor Insurer’s Bureau is there to cover the costs of claims against uninsured drivers. We are experts in handling claims of this nature, with one call we will set the ball rolling to get you the compensation you deserve.
2. The driver can’t be traced so I can’t claim
The driver may have driven off from the scene, or perhaps they gave you false details. Whatever the situation, all is not lost. Just because the driver isn’t traceable, doesn’t mean you can’t get compensation for your car accident injuries. It’s important that you have evidence of the accident, for example details of witnesses and pictures of the scene and damage. Our team of expert lawyers will use this information to fight for your right to compensation.
3. It’s too expensive to take it to court

4. Cyclists can’t make a claim
Whether you were a cyclist, the passenger or driver of a car – it doesn’t matter. If you received injuries that were not your fault at the scene of a car accident, it is likely you can make a claim. It’s not just car accidents that you can claim for – maybe your bicycle hit a pot hole in the road, or some oil from a vehicle. If you received injuries through no fault of your own, take our free 30-second test to see if you can make a claim.
