    Serious auto accident case

    Help with your serious auto accident case

    According to the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents, driver error is the most common cause of accidents on the UK’s roads. However, environmental factors, such as potholes and faulty traffic lights, can also cause road accidents.

    Auto accidents commonly cause a variety of injuries, including broken bones, whiplash, cuts and bruises and psychological problems – all of which can cause pain, discomfort and financial losses.

    Who is entitled to compensation following an auto accident?

    Auto accident compensation claims can be made by anyone who has been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault. If another motorist caused the accident, a claim could be made against the negligent motorist’s insurance company; whereas if an environmental factor, such as a pothole in the road, caused the accident, a claim could be made against the Highways Agency. Claims can also be made against uninsured and untraceable drivers. Here, the auto accident compensation would be paid by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) fund, to which all UK motor insurance companies are required to contribute.

    What does a compensation claim cover?

    In addition to compensating for any pain and inconvenience, auto accident compensation claims can cover the cost of any money lost as a result of the accident – for example, lost income and medical expenses.
