Road traffic accidents can be a painful and costly experience, but if the accident is still fresh in your mind, the prospect of making a compensation claim for your injuries and financial losses may only add to your heightened stress levels.
If you think that another party was responsible for your accident, there is no need for you to fight your claim single-handedly. At Accident Advice Helpline, our personal injury solicitors in Woolsery can help to make the process of claiming compensation hassle-free.
Your life could have been changed forever if you sustained serious injuries, or maybe just for a short time until you recover from minor injuries. Whichever you have suffered, it is not fair when someone else caused the accident you were in, which is why the law says they should compensate you. If your personal injury claim is successful, you may also be able to recoup any costs and losses the accident has caused.
Who will pay out for your compensation settlement?
Under the Road Traffic Act, all drivers must possess a valid motor insurance policy. Therefore, if you have been involved in an accident, the careless driver’s insurance company should compensate you for your personal injuries and financial losses.
If you have been involved in an accident caused by an uninsured driver, you will still be able to claim compensation. In this instance, a non-profit organisation called the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) should pay out for your claim.
If the driver left the scene of the accident without providing you with any details, you must report the accident to the police within five days. You will then be able to instruct our solicitors in Woolsery to submit an untraceable driver claim to the MIB.
