The roads in the UK are typically hectic and dangerous places so it is no surprise that there are many accidents every year. If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident in or around the area then you’ll want to know whether or not you can make a claim and equally importantly, you’ll want to find a personal injury lawyer who will have the right mix of skills and experience to make a claim. Here are some of the things to bear in mind.
Was it your fault?
The first thing to work out will be whether the accident was your fault or not. This is often an area of argument as both drivers may believe the other was at fault.
Let’s take an example in which a driver in front brakes suddenly causing the other to run into them. The driver behind might feel that they have the stronger case because it was the sudden braking that caused the accident. However they will still probably be called to account because they should have been far enough away from the car in front not to worry about any sudden braking.
Making a claim
When we pass our tests and start driving we’re all required to take out third party insurance to cover us for any injuries we inflict on other road users. It is this that you will be claiming against when the time comes.
But what if the other driver is not carrying any insurance. Well, for starters they will be in a whole lot of trouble with the authorities and will probably have their car sold by the police. However you will still be able to make a claim as long as your documents are still in working order.
