Car Accident

Involved in a Car Accident?

If you were involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible for personal injury compensation. In the instance that you were a passenger in a car, van, bus, coach etc. your claim would be against the insurance company of the driver who was responsible for the collision. If you were a pedestrian, driver, motor or pedal cyclist, you would claim against the person who you collided with. You may also be eligible if this happens abroad or on holiday.

Car Accident Claims

With all car accident claims you are required to prove that the other person is responsible for the accident and not you. To help you to do this, straight after an accident always make sure that you note down names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses and take a photograph. If the person responsible admits that they have no insurance, leaves the scene or confesses that the vehicle being stolen, make sure that you contact the police as soon as possible.
