FAQs

  • Can passengers claim compensation?

    Yes, a passenger can also make a claim for compensation after an accident. If a passenger is involved in a collision on the road and they sustain injuries through no fault of their own, then they are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    All that’s needed for a claim is legal representation, sufficient proof of any injuries sustained and evidence that the accident was caused by someone else – be it the driver they were travelling with at the time or another motorist.

    Injuries such as whiplash can be quite common in road traffic accidents, and this can affect drivers as well as passengers travelling in either the front or back seats. When a road traffic accident occurs, passengers can feel as much impact as drivers or, if there is no passenger airbag in the vehicle, even more.

    If the accident was caused by the driver of the car the passenger was travelling in, then they can make a claim through the driver’s insurance. However, a claim can only be made within three years of the accident taking place. Our experts can assess the circumstances of your accident, and will advise if you have grounds to make a claim.

    If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident, but you’re unsure who was responsible and if you’re able to make a claim, then call one of our advisors or complete our online claim form.

  • I was hit by an uninsured driver. Can I claim?

    Yes, it is possible to make a claim if you were hit by an uninsured driver as, with the help of our panel of solicitors, you can claim through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB). Backed by the government, the MIB is a scheme where drivers who suffer injuries in accidents as a result of reckless and uninsured motorists can claim compensation.

    The MIB use their ‘Uninsured Drivers’ Agreement’ to help with identifying whether the driver responsible for your injuries was insured or not and our solicitors will be able to advise you about your case and how it relates to the agreement.

    You’ll need to give the MIB notice within a 14-day period after proceedings are issued by the court dealing with the claim, but our solicitors will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.

    Accidents and collisions can be stressful enough, whether you’ve been injured as a result of an uninsured driver or if you’ve sustained damage to property, and we don’t believe you should foot the bill for someone else’s mistakes.

    Our experts have dealt with numerous claims for people who have been hit by an uninsured driver, and have extensive experience in this area. They’ll ensure you understand what is happening throughout the process, including dealing with the MIB.

  • What should I do after a road traffic accident?

    A road traffic accident can be very stressful to deal with and it’s only natural that you’ll feel anxious and disoriented immediately after an accident or collision. First and foremost, it’s important to stay calm – there’s a certain amount of information you’ll need about the incident and the other driver, so keeping a clear head is useful.

    The first thing you’ll need to do is find out if the other driver has insurance. If the other driver refuses to give you their insurance information, then you can report them to the police. If this is the case, take note of their registration number. Registration numbers can provide your solicitor with a lot of information about the driver, so make a note of the registration plate.

    Secondly, try to collect as much information as you can about the accident as well as your losses and injuries as a result of the accident. It’s generally advisable to take photos of the vehicles following the accident. It’s also recommended to take photos of your injuries, while medical records can help too.

    If the police were involved and/or you reported the accident to them, retain the reference number to provide your solicitor with. Keep any details of your medical appointments regarding your injuries as a result of the accident. If you haven’t already seen a medical professional about your injuries, you should make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.

    While the events following a road traffic accident can be stressful, our experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have and can advise you about making a claim for compensation. Our advisors will assess the circumstances of your accident and discuss the details of the next steps you need to take.
