Road Traffic Accident
Road Traffic Accidents can be extremely distressing for victims and their families. It isn’t only drivers of cars on the road; motorbikes, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians can also be involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t their fault and may be entitled to personal injury compensation.
Driver / Passenger
If you are a driver and have been in a road traffic accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. If there is a dispute about who is at fault for the accident, you should contact a personal injury solicitor as you may still be eligible to claim for personal injury compensation.
Passengers injured in a road traffic accident may also be entitled to compensation and should speak to a personal injury solicitor.
If a road traffic accident is caused by cyclists or pedestrians you may still be able to claim for personal injury compensation even though is unlikely that they would have insurance so you should speak to a personal injury solicitor for more information.
Car insurance is a legal requirement however there are currently one million uninsured drivers on Britain's roads.
The Uninsured Drivers Scheme and the Untraced Drivers Scheme dictate that the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) must provide compensation to those who have suffered injuries or loss as a result of an accident caused by an uninsured driver or an untraceable driver. MIB settles about 25,000 claims a year.
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, with an uninsured driver or a hit and run, you may still be able to claim personal injury compensation.
