Thinking About Making Car Accident Claims?
The number of cars in the UK - 31 million - is growing all the time, and more than 70 per cent of the UK population has a driving licence.
So, as UK public transport continues to be far from perfect, our love affair with the automobile shows no signs of diminishing any time soon. Nor, sadly, does the number of car accidents. These accidents are responsible for more than 290,000 injuries each year in the UK, with human error causing 95% of them.
Small wonder then that the number of car accident claims people are making is also the rise. Unfortunately, if you drive, the chances are high that you could become involved in a car accident at some point during your motoring career, and, of course, they don't have to be serious to be unpleasant, expensive and stressful.
People who've been involved in a car accident through no fault of their own are entitled to make car accident claims to compensate for the injuries and financial losses suffered.
There are various circumstances in which you can make car accident claims. You may not be aware, for example that you can make car accident claims as a pedestrian, cyclist or as a passenger, as well as being a driver who wasn't as fault, and by the way, car accident claims can also be made by taxi passengers.
Did you know that you can make car accident claims in accidents involving uninsured drivers, or hit and run accidents?
You shouldn't even rule out the possibility of compensation if you are the driver in an accident where 50/50 liability is established. It may still be possible to claim on a 'no win, no fee' basis.
Quite aside from the stress of a car accident, there are many reasons why people make car accident claims. Car accident injuries can leave people with back, head or whiplash (soft tissue) injuries which need time off work or physiotherapy treatment to heal. People also make car accident claims because of damage to property - of course your car, if applicable, but clothes and other belongings can become damaged as well.
Car Accident Claims With The Accident Advice Bureau
At The Accident Advice Bureau, we know car accident claims inside out. We understand that they can be lengthy, time-consuming and stressful processes, even more when they go wrong, or things get a bit complicated. (As if being in a car accident in the first place wasn't stressful enough). But the good news is that, with our help, they don't have to be. At The Accident Advice Bureau, we're totally committed to the whole business of making car accident claims as hassle free as possible.
We'll be happy to discuss your car accident claims, whatever your reason for putting in a claim. You should even get in touch if you think you may be entitled to make a claim, but are not entirely sure. One thing we would encourage you to do, whatever happens, is to stand up for your rights. We understand that following a nasty traffic accident, you may wish to put the whole experience behind you. But why shouldn't you get the compensation to which you are entitled?
Of course, we don't have magic wands, and can't claim to be able to settle claims overnight. (And you should be very wary of any organisation which claims they can). That's because there are many people involved with car accident claims - GPs, the police and insurance companies among others.
Since the level of compensation you receive will depend on how badly you've been hurt, and how long the injuries take to heal, you may have to undergo a medical assessment. Your solicitor will arrange for this to take place near where you live and of course, these things take time.
What we can guarantee at The Accident Advice Bureau is that we treat all car accident claims sympathetically, and with sensitivity. In a competitive industry, we believe it is our strong focus on customer service, compared with our many years of experience in securing compensation for thousands of clients, which set us apart.
With us, no win no fee really does mean exactly that. So you can't lose. You get to keep every penny of any compensation awarded, and, whatever happens, we'll never ask you for any money. Expenses such as loss of earnings, damage to clothes and so on, which can run into thousands of pounds, are on top of any compensation money awarded.
So contact us by phone or via our web site today - there's lots more information about The Accident Advice Bureau and car accident claims online as well. We'll give you an honest, accurate assessment of your own situation, and, if you take your claim further through us, provide a reliable, friendly and professional service.
Remember - you have nothing to lose!
