What Are Your Rights In A Car Accident?
18th October 2013
Clearwater Solicitors have dealt with countless road traffic accident claims in the past and have learned a lot through these experiences. Frequently, people who have been injured in car crashes accept the first offer made by their insurers, but our personal injury solicitors know that claimants are more likely to receive the highest possible car accident compensation payment if they speak to us before accepting any settlement.
With the ongoing support and guidance of Clearwater Solicitors, you will be able to gather relevant, compelling evidence to support your compensation claim, helping you discover exactly how the accident occurred and be compensated for your losses. We will look at police reports, photographs of the accident scene, medical records, vehicle repair statements and any relevant information to build your case, prove your losses and demonstrate the other party’s negligence.
We can still help you to claim compensation if you have been hit by an uninsured driver or if the person who was responsible for the motor vehicle accident has not been traced – these car accident compensation claims are paid for by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
If you want to claim compensation, you will have to tell your insurance company about the car accident and if you have been injured or if the other driver refused to swap insurance information with you, you may need to speak to the police as well. You will find it hard to claim personal injury compensation in your road traffic accident claim if you do not go to the hospital or doctor to have your injuries checked out, so you should do this as soon as possible. It is understandable if you have developed whiplash, for instance, but do not notice the condition until a few hours or days after the car accident, as whiplash injuries can take a few days to develop. Nonetheless, you should have your injuries diagnosed and examined as quickly as you can.
Why Should I Claim Road Traffic Accident Compensation After My Personal Injury?
Some of the benefits to claiming car accident compensation include:
– Recovering any medical or hospital expenses
– Recover the cost of rehabilitation, specialist medical equipment and other related losses
– Recover the loss of any wages or salary you would have otherwise received had the motor vehicle accident not occurred
– Recover any travel and vehicle repair or replacement costs you incurred
– Receive a lump sum for your pain, suffering and loss of amenity
– Recover any potential future losses you are likely to incur as a result of your injuries
– Receive the cost of funeral expenses or the loss of earnings of a family member, if applicable
