If you’ve had a bump or crash or been injured in any way on the road due to the failings of another road user, then it’s likely that you’ll be able to claim financial compensation.
It doesn’t matter if you were driving or a passenger in a car, coach, van, bus, lorry or HGV; riding a motorcycle or on the back of one; a pedestrian or cyclist hit by a vehicle – our advice is to take legal advice.
Even if the driver of the vehicle which caused your injury wasn’t insured, it’s still worth contacting a solicitor through Lawmatch as they can advise you on making a claim through the Motor Insurer’s Bureau, which acts as an ‘insurer of last resort’ in cases like this.
You can claim compensation for damage to your vehicle; and also recover damages for injuries and expenses including:
- Loss of earning (past and future)
- Loss of pension entitlement
- Policy excess or the value of your vehicle
- Car hire cost
- Medical fees (past and future)
- Medication costs
- Property damage
- Care costs
- Aids and appliances
- Travel expenses
