Your Road Traffic Accident Compensation Questions Answered

Our knowledgeable solicitors have experience in dealing with road traffic accident claims. Get in touch today and we can help you gain the compensation that you deserve.

How do I make a road traffic accident compensation claim?

Whatever your involvement in the accident, if you have been injured – whether physically or psychologically – due to the negligence of another road user, it is highly likely that you will be able to claim compensation.

Claims are made against the insurer of the person or company responsible for the accident. The financial award is usually to pay for things like:

  • Damage to personal property or a vehicle
  • Hire car charges
  • Loss of earnings
  • Private medical and rehabilitation fees
  • Policy excess or the value of a vehicle
  • Care costs
Can I still make a road traffic accident claim if the driver was uninsured?

If you were involved in a “hit and run” incident and the individual responsible cannot be traced, was uninsured, or was driving a foreign vehicle, it is still possible to claim compensation through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). This was established to help people claim compensation from negligent, uninsured and untraced motorists, as well as helping to identify insurers for foreign vehicles.
