Being involved in a road accident can be a difficult and distressing time. Road users have a responsibility to exercise caution and care for other road users when driving. If you have been involved in an accident where the other driver was fully or partially responsible - you can make a compensation claim.
If the driver of the vehicle which caused your injury was not insured, then a road accident claim can be made to the Motor Insurer’s Bureau, which acts as an ‘insurer of last resort’ for the victims of uninsured drivers.
Claiming compensation following a road accident
If you have been injured following a road accident that was not your fault you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a road accident claim. You have the right to seek compensation.
Road accident compensation should help to ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life as much as possible. It will also cover your losses, for example if you are unable to work.
