What you need to know about compensation
Unfortunately, road traffic accidents in Craven are a common occurrence. Not all of these accidents will result in injuries, but many will and when that happens, you need to know what to do. Accident Advice Helpline are a team of friendly personal injury lawyers, we can assist you at what can be a tough time in your life.
If you have already been in a traffic accident and you have sustained injuries as a result, you may be entitled to claim road traffic accident compensation. This will depend on a number of factors, including:
- Who was at fault for the accident
- How long ago the accident took place
- Whether medical assistance was sought
This is because there are strict rules and practices regarding the road traffic compensation claims process. However, if you can say yes to the following, we may be able to help you in securing the compensation you deserve if:
- Your accident was less than 3 years ago
- You were not responsible for the accident
- You sustained injuries
- You sought professional medical help after your accident
Do I have to be a driver?
You do not have to be a driver to file a personal injury compensation claim. You could also be a pedestrian who was injured when a car came off the road or ran into you or a cyclist who was injured on the road. Essentially, you just need to have been injured by a third party if you want to file a claim.

As you will probably know, all motorists are required to obtain insurance before they can take their vehicles on the road. When you make a claim of compensation against someone, it will be their insurance company, not them who foots the bill, so there is no need to worry about the possible implications of making a claim and no reason not to go ahead and submit a claim with our help.
