    Injury lawyers for a car accident

    There are times when you don’t need the services of injury lawyers for a car accident claims as your insurance company and the insurers of the other motorist involved pick up the bills, after all that’s why motorists pay high premiums. However you may need injury lawyers for a car accident claims if, for example you had an accident with a person who was driving illegally without insurance. Did you know that you can still claim compensation through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB)?

    Injury lawyers for a car accident

    You may also need a firm of injury lawyers for a car accident claim if you were a pedestrian and were injured by a hit-and-run driver. If the police manage to trace the driver of the vehicle which crashed into you, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against his or her insurance company. If the driver had no insurance, you could make a claim through the MIB.

    Claiming via the MIB

    People who want to claim for damage to property (usually their vehicle, or sometimes a wall and so on) from an uninsured driver or an untraced driver can make a claim through the MIB directly. However it is advisable to hire a solicitor to represent you as the claims process can be a difficult (and long) one.

    What to do after being hit by an uninsured driver

    First of all the accident should be reported to the police. You may have managed to make a note of the registration number of the car, or of the make, colour and model. This would help the police trace the vehicle, although if it had been stolen, the case for making a claim might be even more complicated.

    You would have to be able to prove that another person was responsible for your injury and it would be advisable to take the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident. If you can, you should take photographs of the scene of the accident as they could be used as supporting evidence when your injury lawyers for a car accident claim build your case.

    You may wish to claim for medical expenses such as prescription charges when you make your personal injury compensation claim, and if you do, then you should keep receipts.
