One of the many types of claims for drivers in the UK is being involved in a vehicle accident which was caused by a driver without adequate insurance. Uninsured claims can provide you with the compensation deserved when the accident was not your fault.
Uninsured claims – How to claim…
All drivers on the UK roads must have valid insurance. The minimum requirement is third party cover, which protects any third party property or persons. This minimum requirement isn’t always met, with many drivers taking the risk and driving on the road without any insurance at all, which is a devastating blow for anyone involved in an accident with one of these drivers.
If you have been involved in an accident which wasn’t your fault and the driver didn’t have valid insurance, then you can proceed with uninsured claims. Accident Advice Helpline have over ten years’ experience in this type of claim and can help you through the process with ease.
To claim you will need to complete the 30-second test with your contact information or call Accident Advice Helpline’s Freephone number and speak to a representative that can take the relevant information and advise you within minutes if you can proceed with the uninsured claims. To discuss your claim with an expert adviser dial 0800 689 0500.
When to claim
Anyone who has been involved in a vehicle accident which was caused by someone who didn’t have adequate insurance has a right to claim for compensation. Some important things to bear in mind is that you must claim within three years of the accident. The sooner the better.
If possible get names and contact information of any witnesses and take photographs. This can help the legal team process your claim quickly and effectively.
How much will it cost
One of the biggest concerns when you’ve been hit by a driver without insurance is the cost involved. You’ve already had to claim from your own insurance and have had to bear the cost to repair your vehicle. You may have had to take time off work to recover and now it’s your turn to get the compensation you need to pay for that loss of income.
Accident Advice Helpline have a team of experienced lawyers and solicitors that work on a 100% no win no fee basis. This means if you claim and your claim is unsuccessful, there is nothing to pay. Pick up the phone or complete the 30-second test now to speak to one of the advisers and get the no-obligation advice you need on whether to proceed with a claim or not.
