If you have had a road accident then there will be lots of things which need to be dealt with in the weeks and months that follow. Insurance will need to be paid to deal with the damage to any vehicles involved, and you may want to think about road accident claims in Chichester.
If you are sure that the accident was not your fault, then you should be able to claim compensation for any injuries you have suffered. Here are some of the people who may have been at fault for your accident, and who you can claim against.
The other driver
If you believe that the other driver was at fault for your accident then it should be fairly simple to make a claim against them. Another driver can be proven to be at fault if they were breaking the law when the accident happened, such as if they were drink driving or speeding. They could also be at fault if they were distracted or behaving aggressively.
You can make a claim against a pedestrian if they walked out in front of your vehicle, causing you to have an accident. Although they may have been injured badly in the accident, as long as they were the one at fault for causing the accident, it is still possible to claim against them.
The local authority
You may also have had an accident due to the conditions of the road. In the case of roads which are badly broken or cracked, or which have extreme potholes, it is the council’s job to get these fixed as soon as possible. If this has not happened then you should be able to make a claim against the local authority for your injuries.
