There is a common misconception surrounding accidents and compensation claims because a lot of people think that it is only the driver that can claim but this is not the case at all. When it comes to making a claim following a road traffic accident it is more than the driver that is able to claim compensation in Dalton in Furness, as pedestrians and passengers can also claim.
When it comes to getting the compensation that you are entitled to, just call Accident Advice Helpline. With over 15 years of personal injury experience, we can help. Passengers have just as much right to claim compensation for the accident as the driver has and this is something that is often not clearly understood.
Was a family member driving that car?
Research has shown that people are reluctant to claim compensation for the injury that they have had when it was a family member who was driving the car. The amount of compensation that you get can help to assist your recovery. If your compensation case is successful, it is the insurance company that pays the compensation not the actual driver. Accident Advice Helpline can help to ease the pressure of making a claim for compensation.
What happens if the driver is not insured?
It is a legal requirement for drivers to be insured, however there are still some people that are driving around without insurance. If the accident was caused by a driver who is not insured you may still be able to claim compensation in Dalton in Furness as a claim can be presented to the Motor Insurers Bureau, which is a company that has been set up in order to prevent victims being left out of pocket because of an uninsured driver.

Having a lawyer with relevant experience can make a big difference to the case as well as the outcome of the case and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.
