If you have suffered personal injury in a motor accident within the last three years, you may be eligible for a motor accident injury claim. It’s a sad fact that however careful we try to be as road users, we cannot plan for every eventuality. Any combination of weather, bad driving by other road users, mechanical failure or unpredictable events can cause an accident.
All vehicle drivers are required by law to have a valid insurance policy and if the accident was not your fault and a motorist with third party cover hit you, you may be able to make a motor accident injury claim.
