Tredegar ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
With so many cars on the road at the moment it is no surprise that occasionally there are accidents. Sometimes nobody is at fault, but when there is blame to be apportioned that’s when the lawyers come in.
Claiming for traffic accidents
When we take to the roads, we’re all required by law to carry with us third party insurance. This is intended to cover us against any injury or damage our driving causes other road users. If we are deemed culpable of an accident, it will be this policy which pays out and our own no claims bonus will take a bit of a hammering.
However, if you’re injured by a driver who does not have any insurance this can make it difficult, both in getting repairs paid for and for having any injuries compensated. When this happens the Motor Insurers’ Bureau steps in. This is an organisation which was set up to pay out compensation on those occasions when the other side cannot be found.
Getting full compensation
When you’re in a road accident it’s important to make sure that you understand your rights and get paid the full amount of compensation to which you’re entitled. The other side’s insurance company may come to you with a settlement offer. This may seem attractive as it’s a chance to get the money in the bank without having to go through the lengthy and stressful experience of a legal case.
However the chances are, they are trying to fool you into settling for less than you deserve which is why it’s a good idea to get a claims estimate. This should give you a good idea about how much compensation you should be entitled to which means you can assess any settlement offer more accurately.
It’s also important that you have a full idea of the scope of your injuries. Many people under claim because they miss certain things which could have been important. Psychological problems can be one overlooked issue with road traffic accidents. These should be treated as seriously as any physical injuries.
Paying for a claim
Any traffic claim carries with it a certain risk which is why Tredegar ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers are important. They will not charge you unless they win their case, which means you face no financial penalty from making a claim.
