A road accident can often be stressful, but if the other driver is uninsured or they simply drive off and are untraceable, it can seem like a complete and utter nightmare.
Fortunately, thanks to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, you can still make a compensation claim through solicitors in Cullompton.
Do what you would normally do
At the scene of the accident, you can’t get the other driver’s details if they have driven off or if the other driver hangs around but is uninsured, then you are obviously lacking one crucial piece of information.
But don’t worry, because you can – and should – still collect witnesses’ details. You should also take photographs of the damage to your car and to any property damage.
While you’re at it, take some photos of the driving conditions, too!
When you get home
You may need to go to hospital, or at least to the doctor’s surgery, but when you get home, you should think about ringing up solicitors in Cullompton so that you can start a claim for compensation.
You can access solicitors through a law firm with a strong reputation for providing the highest quality customer service known as Accident Advice Helpline.
Our lines are open 24/7 and are staffed by a team of friendly, professional advisors who will treat you with empathy and sensitivity when you call.
If you qualify to claim compensation, our advisors will pass your details to our team of solicitors in Cullompton, who will then get to work.
What solicitors in Cullompton will do
Solicitors will process your claim on your behalf. Of course, the other driver’s insurer cannot pay you compensation but the Motor Insurers’ Bureau can. This is a body that was set up specifically to deal with claims of this nature.
If your claim is successful, you will win a sum of money that will reimburse you for your expenses, and part of the payout will be for the accident and injury, just to help you get back on your feet again.
If you don’t win, then you needn’t worry unduly, because all our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis.
We abide by a strict code of conduct
Everything we do is underpinned by integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability. Everyone who works for us must adhere to these principles, from our advisors on the hotline to our solicitors in Cullompton.
You probably won’t have to go to court
Most claims can be processed by phone so you probably won’t have to go to court. However, you will need to attend one additional medical assessment in order for your claim to proceed properly.
Why not call us now and get started with your claim? Our advisors are waiting to hear from you! Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Alternatively, text “claim365” to 88010.
