    Compensation claim in Peterlee

    Had a car crash and want to make a compensation claim in Peterlee?

    If you have been involved in a car crash, that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Peterlee.  Each collision is unique and there can be many causes for them, although the most common is driver error.

    To make a compensation claim in Peterlee there are certain criteria you should fit, this includes:

    • The accident should have happened within the last three years
    • You should have needed medical attention for your injuries
    • The accident should not have been your fault – if you were a passenger in an accident and your driver was at to blame, this is still not your fault

    What you can claim for in a compensation claim

    This depends on the severity of your injuries but can include:

    • Pain and suffering
    • Anxiety and stress
    • Loss of earnings
    • Travel expenses
    • Medical expenses
    • Care costs
    • Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident

    Who you would claim from

    Usually this would be the insurance company of the guilty driver but sometimes that is not possible.  If for some reason the driver is uninsured, or in the case of a hit and run untraceable, the case goes to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) for your compensation claim in Peterlee.

    Any insurance company that offers motor insurance has to be a member of MIB.  The insurance companies have to pay MIB a yearly levy, which is used to compensate injured parties making their claim to them.  They also have to provide MIB with data which is input into a central database that hold records of all insured vehicles in the UK.
