Harborough car accident


HGV accident claims FAQs

Being involved in a Harborough car accident can be a terrifying ordeal on it’s own, let alone if that accident involved an HGV.

A heavy goods vehicle can lead to serious accidents, but unfortunately it is those travelling in regular sized vehicles that can be left to pay the price. These passengers often face more severe injuries, and if you have been such a passenger in a collision that took place within the past three years, you could be entitled to claim compensation for these injuries.

At Accident Advice Helpline we receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from people seeking our help having been involved in road traffic accidents, and here we answer some of the most common questions asked after the event of an HGV accident.

How do I know if I can make a claim for a Harborough car accident?

Under UK law, you are within your rights to make a claim if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. If, for example, the driver of the HGV failed to look or indicate, was driving erratically or while using a hand held device, these are all examples of negligence, and you can make a claim after being involved in an accident caused by this sort of behaviour.

Although operators of oversized vehicles undergo rigorous training, this sort of driver error still happens, and you shouldn’t be left to shoulder the consequences if you’ve been in an accident.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Ideally, it’s best to make a claim immediately following the accident, while all the details are still fresh in your memory. If an accident has left you suffering serious injuries, this may of course not be possible, which is why you have up to three years after an accident to make a claim.

Will I have to go to court?

You may not necessarily have to go to court to settle your claim following a Harborough car accident. In many cases where there obvious evidence of negligence, the driver will prefer to settle out of court, which can reduce stress as well as the time it takes to receive your money.
