    Road traffic accident compensation claim UK: Your guide to making a claim

    The United Kingdom is home to four countries – Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England. All of these counties are well developed, with flourishing economies. They are also well developed in terms of technology, architecture, businesses and the environment. Some of the best tourist attractions in the world are situated in the United Kingdom, therefore many foreign visitors who come to the UK throughout the year. There is plenty of great shopping, fun markets and endless tourist attractions.

    In countries as developed as the UK, however, there is a greater chance of traffic accidents where there are larger populations. There are more cars here per square mile than most countries in Europe, and many people in the UK live in two-car households. Moreover, with so many cities receiving tourists from around the world, there is a chance of excess drinking and carelessness around the year. In any accident involving more than one person there is always one side that is to blame. If you as a pedestrian or a car driver gets hit by another driver then by law you have the right to make a road traffic accident compensation claim in the UK.
