When it comes to car accidents, it is not only the driver of the vehicle that is able to claim compensation for injuries sustained in the accident. Accident Advice Helpline and injury lawyers in East Bolden are able to assist passengers to get the compensation that they are entitled to regardless of whether or not the driver of the vehicle that they were in was at fault for the accident.
Research shows that people that are involved in car accidents where friends or family were driving are less likely to claim compensation. The compensation that you get can help you to recover from the accident that you have had and if your claim is successful, the insurance company of the driver will pay for the compensation on the driver.
All drivers are required by law to have the correct motor insurance. However, there are some people that are driving without insurance. If a driver that is not insured injures you, don’t worry as it is still possible to get compensation for the injury that you have sustained. The claim for compensation would be against the bureau of motor insurers, which is a company that exists in order to ensure that victims are not left out of pocket.
Claims against public transport
It is also possible to claim compensation for an accident that has happened when you have been travelling on public transport such as a bus or a taxi. The driver of public transport has a duty of care towards the passengers that they are carrying. You will possibly have grounds for compensation if you have been injured due to a collision with another vehicle or due to a fall because of erratic driving. Injury lawyers in East Bolden will be able to assist with your claim for compensation for a public transport accident.
