A successful road traffic accident claim should result in 100% compensation (except in cases involving untraced drivers). If you win your claim, your solicitor receives a fixed fee in settlement of legal costs from the other party's insurers. Under no win no fee, some lawyers may also charge a success fee. If they do charge a success fee, find out how much and how it is calculated. You are advised when contacting different solicitors to make sure you understand their terms of service along with all potential costs and liabilities. In addition, get the lawyers to confirm you will receive 100% compensation if they file a car injury claim on your behalf. You should compare not only the legal services of law firms but also their general customer service before appointing a firm to represent you.

Things to do before starting car injury claims
For a successful outcome, your solicitor will need to substantiate a car injury claim with evidence that proves the other party was at fault. You therefore need to provide as much evidence as possible including details of eye witnesses along with photographs of the accident scene. Car injury claims should not be delayed because there are strict time limits in place. Try therefore not to delay your own injury claim and call a solicitor today.

Claiming car accident compensation as a driver of a vehicle
If you suffered injury as the driver of a private or public vehicle and were not at fault, you are entitled to 100% compensation.

Making a car accident compensation claim as a passenger
If you suffered injury either in a private or public transport vehicle, you can claim 100% compensation against the driver(s) deemed at fault. This could be the person driving you and/or a third party driver (depending on whether one or both drivers are deemed equally at fault). Compensation is financed by the insurance company of the driver(s) at fault.

If you are a pedestrian and have suffered injury as a result of negligence on the part of a another driver or motorcyclist, you can claim compensation from their insurers.

Claiming as a cyclist
If you were not at fault and received injury in a road traffic accident as a result of a driver's negligence or because of inadequate road safety conditions, an injury lawyer can assist you with your claim.

Claiming accident compensation as a motorcyclist

Claiming car crash compensation where the other driver is uninsured
Amazingly, about 10% of 18-34 year old drivers are unaware that motor insurance is a legal requirement and nearly a million car drivers under the age of 30 are driving without insurance. If an uninsured driver cause an accident and as a result you are injured in a car crash, claim solicitors can still get you compensation through the Motor Insurers' Bureau. If you are a driver, you can get cheap online car insurance quotes from motor insurance companies offering policies that will protect you against uninsured drivers.

what about hit and run incidents?
If you suffered injury as a result of negligence by another driver who quickly leaves the scene without disclosing their details, a personal injury lawyer can still claim damages for you through the provisions of the Motor Insurers' Bureau.
