Car Accident Injury Claim
Almost 300,000 injuries a year are caused as a result of road traffic accidents in the UK.
There are also around 1 million uninsured drivers on the roads, with one in ten road accidents involving an uninsured driver.
This makes it increasingly difficult to claim if you have been in a car accident that wasn't your fault, however there are some vital pieces of information, which can significantly assist you with the claiming process.
Making a Successful Car Accident Injury Claim
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, there is a lot of information your personal injury solicitor would find particularly useful when trying to win your case and obtain the compensation that you deserve.
You should always try to retrieve as many details as you can from the driver that has caused the accident. This information should include their name, address, telephone number, car registration number and providing they have car insurance, you should also try to obtain their insurance providers name and their policy number.
To further strengthen your case, you should also get contact details for any witnesses that were around when the accident took place.
Car Accidents Involving An Uninsured Driver
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident caused by an uninsured driver, don't panic, you are still able to claim for compensation.
The Motor Insurers Bureau deal with hundreds of cases a year with people that have similar circumstances to yourself. Commonly referred to as the M.I.B, the Motor Insurers Bureau pays out around 500 million pounds a year in compensation settlements for accidents that have involved either uninsured drivers or even untraced motorists.
If you have been in an accident with an untraced motorist, you will have been a victim of whats more often known as a 'hit and run'. This may well have been due to the driver being uninsured or possibly without a driving licence for example but either way, you should still be allegable to claim for compensation through the M.I.B.
