Sometimes it is not just car drivers that make Huntingdonshire car accident claims, they are also made by cyclists, motorbike riders, lorry drivers, bus drivers and even pedestrians. Any of them can be involved in an accident with a car, and then proceed to make Huntingdonshire car accident claims.
The injuries people sustain in car accidents are varied, both in their type and severity and also how they affect people’s lives.
Any innocent victim who wants to make Huntingdonshire car accident claims because of the negligence or recklessness of someone else, is entitled to claim compensation from whoever was to blame. This has to be claimed, as claims are usually settled by insurance companies, and they certainly are not going to pay you compensation unless you ask for it.
Dealing with the insurance companies for your Huntingdonshire car accident claims
No one much likes dealing with insurance companies. They are all sweetness and light when selling you a policy, but they can become very awkward when you want to make Huntingdonshire car accident claims, or any other sort of claim.
Some of them take claims over the phone these days, instead of sending out awful forms. But this does not make the questions any less awkward, and it is still to easy to answer them in the wrong way and mess up your claim, no matter what it is for.
The solicitors and lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline are used to dealing with insurance companies and handling their funny ways. They know how to present your claim so that no awkward questions arise; but the one thing you can be sure of is they will still be looking for you to prove your compensation claim.
Proving you were not at fault
Any sort of proof that you were not to blame for the accident you were injured in is useful, but the more common types of things we are given to help are:
- Witness details so that we can contact them for a statement if it is needed;
- Photos of the accident scene, often taken on a mobile phone;
- CCTV footage of the accident;
- Footage from on-board cameras that are becoming much more common these days;
- Police reports, which they always compile if they have to attend an accident scene; and
- Other items that might seem trivial to the victim at the time of the accident, but can be really important in proving their claims.
