Every week there are thousands of accidents on the roads in the UK – in fact the total estimated figure per year is over 600,000 of them. Many of them do not involve serious injuries or deaths, but those that do can change the life of the injured party forever. If you are one of these unlucky people, and the car accident that caused you injuries was the fault of someone else, you might want to claim compensation for car collisions in Barking and Dagenham.
Types of accidents that cause compensation claims
Any car accident that was not your fault can mean you are entitled to make a claim for car collisions in Barking and Dagenham, as long as your injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened no more than three years ago.
It could have been caused by a driver being reckless or careless, as most car accidents are caused by driver error of some sort.
Usually, your claim would be settled by the other drivers insurance, but what happens if there is none? This could be because:
- The other car was stolen
- The accident was a hit and run
- The insurance is made invalid for some reason
- The other driver did not renew his policy
- The other driver is driving while disqualified
In situations like these, your claim would be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). The MIB exists to settle claims where there is a lack of insurance. It achieves this by taking an annual levy from every insurance company that sells motor insurance, and then uses the money to settle the claims.
