Car Accident Claims

Cars and road travel are generally much safer than in the past, but accidents still happen. If you've been injured in an accident caused by someone else, you should know your rights around making car accident claims.

We know that being involved in a car accident can be a shocking and upsetting experience. Car accidents often lead to injuries such as whiplash, cuts and broken bones.

This is why we work hard to get you the compensation you deserve, and make your car accident claim as hassle-free as possible so you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries. We've been working since 1993 to help motorists make successful road accidents claims, claiming compensation which can help pay medical bills or cover lost income after time taken off work after a road accident.

Who pays the compensation in car accident claims?

Working out who caused a car accident is an important part of determining who pays the compensation in car accident claims.

If you were injured in an accident with another motorist who was to blame for the incident and they have car insurance, the compensation is paid by the other motorist's insurance company. If the other motorist doesn't have any insurance or leaves the scene without providing any details, car accident claims can be made through the Motor Insurer's Bureau (MIB). If the other driver leaves the scene, it's essential that you report this to the police immediately.

For road accidents involving just one vehicle (such as those caused by large potholes in the road or a spill that hasn't been cleared up properly), car accident claims can be made against the Highways Agency.
