If you have been involved in a car crash in or around Derby, then you could be thinking of making a personal injury compensation claim. If you have been in a Derby car crash which was not your fault, but caused by another person’s negligence, you may have grounds to file a claim for damages.
Derby car crash
You may have been in a Derby car crash and exchanged details with the driver who caused the accident and then discovered that the person was not insured. You can still receive compensation, although you will probably need the services of an expert solicitor who has experience of dealing with successful claims in this field. It is estimated that one in twenty drivers in the UK are driving illegally without insurance.
Car crashes involving uninsured drivers
If you have a crash with a driver who has no insurance, then the accident should be reported to the police within five days. You then have up to nine months to make a claim for damages. If you received only minor injuries and also want to claim for damage to your property then the claim can usually be settled within four or five months. You can claim compensation from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), but it would be wise to contact a specialist road traffic accident solicitor to help you file your claim. He or she can also advise you about how much compensation you should or shouldn’t accept. You can also appeal against any decision you don’t agree with and this would be best handled by a specialist solicitor.
