Who can make road accident claims in Deganwy?
The solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline specialise in making a wide variety of personal injury claims. Essentially this means that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then one of our team members will no doubt be able to help you make a claim to recover the compensation that you are entitled to. There are various situations in which you may be able to make a claim, but here we will look specifically at accidents that have occurred on the road. As a result then we will talk about road accident claims in Deganwy and who might be entitled to make them.
If you were the driver of a vehicle (whether this be a car, a motorbike or a van) and you have been involved in an accident that you did not cause, then we could be able to help secure you compensation.
Our solicitors will look at the details of your accident, which will no doubt include a police report from the time, and can determine where liability for the incident lies. Provided that this is not with you, then there is no reason to suggest that compensation could not be sought.
For the most part passengers are not considered to be liable for accidents occurring. However, this is not to say that this is always the case. Passengers who are not behaving correctly can cause the drivers of their own vehicle, or other road users to become distracted, thus causing an accident.
Our solicitors will be able to investigate the matter and determine whether there is any reason to suggest why a passenger could be held accountable for an accident occurring. If there is no reason, and it is clear that someone else caused the accident, then a claim can be made and compensation will be sought.
Unfortunately pedestrians can often become caught up in accidents, and they also have the right to make road accident claims in Deganwy if they are injured as a result. If a car swerves to miss another vehicle, they may collide with someone standing or walking on the pavement. Without the protection afforded by a vehicle pedestrians are likely to suffer severe injuries.
Our solicitors will look into all the facts and determine who is liable, and how much compensation is due.
