    Claiming compensation when a family member of friend has been driving

    Research has shown that people are less likely to claim compensation if a friend of family was driving the car because they do not want to be out of pocket. The amount of compensation that you get can help your recovery as it could allow you to have valuable time off work to recover rather than trying to work whilst injured, which can make the injuries a lot worse. When you claim compensation the driver will not personally pay compensation because as long as they are correctly insured the insurance company will pay the compensation.

This company will also take responsibility for compensation for accidents where the other driver has fled the scene or if the other driver cannot be traced for whatever reason.
