If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, then you may be eligible for financial compensation. If you were the driver at the time, then you will be eligible for compensation, if you were not 100 per cent responsible for the accident. Or, if you were a passenger at the time, then you will be able to make a claim with the insurer of the responsible party, whether that is the other motorist, or the driver of the car you were in.
Here’s some information on the different types of car crash claims:
Car Crash Claims
Road traffic accidents that involve two or more cars can take considerable investigation to get to the bottom of. It really does pay to have an experienced car crash UK lawyer on your side for this reason. Under the circumstances, you can make an accident claim with the other party’s motor insurer, or if they are currently untraced or were uninsured at the time of the accident, then you may be eligible to make a claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
If you have been injured while crossing the road, or in any other circumstances by a motorist, then you can make a personal injury claim with their motor insurer. Or, if they are untraced, or if it has transpired that they were uninsured, then you may be eligible to make a claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident as a motorcyclist, it is essential that you get specialist legal advice. Motorcyclists get a bad rep when it comes to claims, since insurers can automatically presume that they were speeding at the time of the accident. To avoid such claims, enlist the expertise of a specialist lawyer.
Cycling Accident Claims
It is estimated that every day, 10 cyclists are seriously injured on Britain’s roads. If you have been injured whilst cycling on a public road, then you will be able to make a claim with the other party’s motor insurer. However, you will need specialist legal representation to make a strong claim, since cyclists are often blamed for accidents.
Car Crash Claims on Private Land
If you have been injured in a car crash on private land, and not on a public road, then your claim will probably be with the land’s owner. However, making a claim for a car crash on private land can be tricky, since there may be no insurer to claim with. If this has happened to you, you should seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible, to establish whether you can make a claim, and who your claim will likely be with.
