Car Accident Compensation Claims
We specialise in helping victims of injury claim the car accident compensation they deserve
Car Accident Compensation Claims
Most of us travel in cars every day and think little of it; we certainly don’t expect to have a car crash or road accident while going about our regular business. But that’s exactly what happens to almost 60 people on British roads every day. Official government figures show that, in the last twelve months, 21,657 people were seriously injured, while more than 1,700 died directly from involvement in a car accident.
If you, or someone you love, has been wounded in a road accident that wasn’t your fault, The Compensation Experts can help you claim the car accident compensation you deserve. This payment lets you access medical treatment and rehabilitation care, to allow you to recover and move forward with your life.
What is a Car Accident Compensation Claim?
Every year, thousands of people suffer the emotional and physical trauma of being involved in a road accident that was not of their doing. Compensation claims for injuries sustained in car accidents can include:
- Fractures and dislocations
- Cuts and bruises
However, road traffic accident compensation is for more than physical damage. Additional costs associated with car accident claims include:
- Private medical treatment like physiotherapy, or at-home nursing care
- Hiring another vehicle if yours is unusable
- Lost income if you are unable to work while you recover
- Travel expenses going to and from the hospital, your GP, or another place of treatment
- If you have had to cancel an upcoming holiday due to the injuries you have sustained
Examples of car accident claims
A road traffic accident can happen for a variety of reasons. However, in our experience, the most common car accident claims are those outlined below:
- Hit and run that results in a road accident
- A driver failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
- Carelessness in a car park
- A driver operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- A driver failing to recognise a crossing pedestrian
Our car accident lawyers have helped win countless road traffic accident claims, including an instance where a woman was injured as the passenger in a car crash. The approaching vehicle was coming around a corner on the wrong side of the road. She suffered cuts, bruises, and short-term memory loss due to a head injury.
The car accident lawyers for the other driver’s insurance company initially denied responsibility for the accident. It took extensive negotiation from our car accident lawyers, but reasonable road traffic accident compensation was agreed without the case going to court.
Claiming Compensation for a Car Accident
Road traffic accident solicitors at The Compensation Experts can assist you with your request, even if the other driver involved was uninsured, or they did not stop at the scene, and it is not possible to locate them. The latter happens through the Untraced Drivers Agreement, managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau.
If you wish to make a road accident claim via the Untraced Drivers Agreement, you must report the accident to the police within 14 days, if you are making a personal injury compensation claim, or five days if you want payment for damage to your car or property. Your car accident lawyer will help you compile the evidence to show:
- The nature of your injury and the impact it has had on your life.
- That the other party was responsible.
They will request car accident compensation and negotiate on your behalf until a settlement is agreed.
