Road Traffic Accidents are automatically assumed to involve cars. This is usually the case but some of the most serious accidents involve those riding motorbikes. If you were involved in an accident riding a motorbike (or were a passenger on the bike) and the accident was not your fault then the chances are that you can claim for compensation for your injuries.
UK law currently states that an accident victim is allowed to make a claim for compensation providing that the accident was not their fault, that their injuries were a result of the accident and that the accident happened within the last three years. If these conditions apply to you then don’t waste any more time, speak to a personal injury lawyer in Bournemouth today.
Personal Injury Lawyer in Bournemouth – How do I find one?
One of the simplest methods of finding a personal injury lawyer in Bournemouth is to look in the local telephone directory or to use an internet search engine. Personal recommendation is also a good way of finding a reputable company. Whatever method you choose always chose a company that has experience and can be contacted easily as you will have many questions to ask them. You can also use a national company such as Accident Advice Helpline, that you can call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week on 0800 689 0500 (0333 500 0993 from a mobile). Your location is unimportant when it comes to making a compensation claim, you can use a national legal firm as easily as a local one.
One of the most common questions asked by Road Traffic Accidents victims is “what happens if the other party was uninsured, or I cannot trace him?” In this instance help is still at hand. A Government funded organisation called the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) has been set up to help people in just that situation. They will step into the role of the other driver and pay compensation in the same way. However if you have not reported your accident to the police then the MIB will not get involved as reporting a Road Traffic Accident is required by law. If you have not done this then you will have been in breach of the law. If the accident was not reported at the time then you can report it at your local police station the next day.
