If you have been involved in a road traffic accident there are certain rules that apply if you want to make a claim for compensation:
- The accident should have happened within the last three years.
- You should not have been at fault.
- You should of sustained bodily injuries.
- You should have sought medical attention for your injuries.
Your personal injury claim
The first thing to be looked at when expert injury lawyers in Pimlico are dealing with your claim will be the injuries and how severe they are. There are many possible injuries, in fact the list is endless, but some of the more common ones are:
- Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash
- Fractured bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Back and spine injuries
- Head and brain injuries
If you experience any of these in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using expert injury lawyers in Pimlico.
The settlement of your personal injury compensation claim
Most of the time, the other drivers insurance company would pay this, but if they turn out to be uninsured, it would be the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). Anyone that offers motor insurance has to be a member of MIB. The insurance companies pay a levy to them each year and this is used to cover the compensation claims it receives. MIB also collects the information from insurance companies about the vehicles they insure. This is all fed into a central database, which holds the details of all insured vehicles in the UK.
If, however, your accident were caused by a pothole or bad road surface, your injury claim would be made to the local authority responsible for maintaining the road the accident happened on.
