A Young Driver accident claim needn’t be stressful
Sadly young drivers have a bit of a reputation for being a danger on the roads. Insurance premiums are high for those under 25 because of this. Perhaps it’s unfair to label every young driver irresponsible, it’s certainly not the case.
If you have been involved in a car accident and were not to blame for it in any way, then you could make a young driver accident claim against the driver who was responsible for the accident. All drivers are legally required to have motor insurance, but there are many irresponsible motorists of all ages who drive illegally without insurance on Britain’s roads. In fact there’s no such thing as a young driver accident claim as far as AAH are concerned. We treat everyone the same.
Third party insurance
Drivers must have third party insurance. This is so that an innocent person in a car crash would become known as the third party in any young driver accident claim. The driver of the vehicle who was to blame for the accident will need to pay for any costs you incur because of the accident, medical costs for example. Drivers who are responsible for an accident cannot claim on their own third party insurance for any injuries they sustain.
Young Driver accident claim
Sometimes insurance companies do not immediately offer reasonable compensation to the victim of an accident. You should not take the first offer you receive for compensation for any injuries you have sustained in an accident that you were not responsible for. If you have any doubts about a claim for injuries incurred in a road traffic accident, then you should contact an accident solicitor to actively pursue a driver accident claim.
If you are unlucky enough to have had an accident that was not your fault and then found that the other driver was uninsured, you can still claim compensation through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). You will need to report the accident to the police if they were not at the scene of the accident.
If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, then the police can trace the car if you or witnesses have the vehicle’s registration number. There are ways of claiming compensation for injuries sustained in one of these accidents, so you need to contact an accident solicitor to make a driver accident claim.
