With the high volume of traffic on our roads, car accidents are unfortunately common. If you were one of the many people involved in a road traffic accident every week and the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
If you were lucky enough to avoid being injured, you should still be entitled to get compensation for the damage to your car. The UK Road Traffic Act demands that drivers should be insured against injury to others and damage to other people’s property as a result of their use of a motor vehicle.
How much insurance pays for totaled car?
The minimum level of insurance is Third Party Insurance which should cover liability to you if your car is damaged. Comprehensive insurance covers damage to the driver’s own vehicle. Although you will have your own insurance, if the accident was the other driver’s fault, your insurance company will claim from the other driver’s insurance company.
Bear in mind however, that injury following a car accident is common. The most common claim for personal injury arises from a condition known as whiplash. Whiplash is caused by the rapid movement of your head and neck, as a result of being shunted. It causes strain to the soft tissues in the neck and can lead to stiffness and pain. This particular injury can take days, weeks or months to heal and can stop you living a normal life. This is why Accident Advice Helpline can also help you secure compensation for pain and suffering and loss of earnings due to any injury sustained during a car crash.
If you have been driven into by an uninsured driver, Accident Advice Helpline can still help you.
The reason is, here at Accident Advice Helpline we believe that if you have been in a car accident and it was not your fault, you should be awarded compensation.
