Injury solicitors in Hindhead


Injury solicitors in Hindhead and road traffic accidents

Injuries from road traffic accidents can be varied, from a few cuts and bruises to life changing brain damages. Over the last few years, according to government figures, the number of accidents on our road has decreased. Still, in the year ending March 2013, nearly 190,000 accidents which involved serious injury or death happened on UK roads.

These are only the reported accidents, though — using figures supplied by insurance companies and accident claim companies, the government estimates that the truer figure of accidents is over 500,000 a year. That’s 10,000 a week.

Safer roads and cars do mean you are less likely to die in a road traffic accident, though. In the 1980s, with far less traffic on the roads, an average of 15 people a day lost their lives on UK roads, but that has been reduced to an average figure of five a day.

If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault sometime in the last three years, you should contact injury solicitors in Hindhead about making a personal injury claim.

Motorbike riders fare even worse. They account for just 1% of traffic on our roads but for 20% of accidents, and are 40 times more likely to die than a car driver. Their helmets help reduce the likelihood of brain injuries by 50%, but still 80% of motorbike rider deaths are from head injuries.

It does not matter what you are driving or riding if you end up in an accident, particularly if the accident was not your own fault. At the scene, if you are able to, you should swap details with the other driver and contact your insurance company. But what if the other driver is uninsured? What if they do not stop?

Injury solicitors in Hindhead will help with your claim

Motor insurance companies established the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) for these eventualities. Any company that provides motor insurance has to be a member. Each year they have to pay a levy to the MIB based on their business turnover for that year. These levies are used to settle any claims received by the MIB. They also collect data regarding every vehicle that is insured in the UK. This is all recorded in one large database, which sometimes enables them to track untraceable drivers.

If you are claiming just for your vehicle, the MIB will be dealt with by your insurance company on your behalf, but if you are claiming for personal injury then you should contact injury solicitors in Hindhead at Accident Advice Helpline to deal with matters for you.
