Britain’s roads seem to be getting busier by the day. With so many people in cars, buses and vans rushing to get where they need to be each day, it is hardly surprising that the number of road traffic accidents are on the rise. Many people fall victim to accidents on the road every day, many of which were not their fault. This is leading to a rise in the number of traffic collision injury claims that Accident Advice Helpline is dealing with each and every day.
Who can make traffic collision injury claims?
If you have been involved in any sort of road accident that was caused by something or someone else, chances are you will be able to make a claim. Even if you weren’t driving a vehicle at the time, there is still an opportunity for you to make a claim. Plenty of traffic collision injury claims are filed by passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users who have become involved in an accident because someone else was careless.
As a general rule, if you meet these three simple criteria, you will be able to make a claim:
- You were hurt in an accident on the road
- Someone else was responsible
- The accident happened within the past three years
