Introduction to Car Accident Claims
If you are involved in a car accident which was not your fault and you suffer an injury you may be entitled to make a car accident claim for compensation. Regardless of whether you were a driver in the car accident, a passenger or a pedestrian, BBH Legal Services Ltd may be able to help you make a personal injury compensation claim.
Making a Personal Injury Claim
To make a successful personal injury compensation claim you would need to prove that another person was responsible for the accident, this could be the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in or a third party driver that has collided with you. A compensation claim for your injuries could then be made against this person’s insurance company. Compensation is awarded for pain,suffering and loss of amenity – this is your inability to do things that you could do before the accident.
Compensation may also be recovered for financial losses,such as loss of earnings and travel expenses; provided that it can be proven that these losses occurred as a direct result of the accident.
The aim of a loss and expenses claim is to put you back into the position you would have been in had the accident not occurred.
Receipts for any expenses incurred as a result of road traffic accident should be kept in a safe place.

Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) - All motor insurers contribute funds to a body called the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB), they compensate victims when the person at fault is uninsured or untraced.
The Motor Insurers Bureau will deal with claims registered within 9 months of the accident, and will also expect the accident to have been reported to the police. Claims to the Motor Insurers Bureau are subject to certain conditions and excesses and fault still has to be proven.
