Thousands upon thousands of people in the United Kingdom are involved in a road accident every year and many suffer serious personal injury. Our road network is one of the most congested in Europe and it is therefore no wonder that we are unfortunate to have some of the highest number of road traffic accidents here in the UK. Thankfully, motor insurance is compulsory which means that in most instances there is an insurance policy in place which will indemnify you and your passengers for their injuries and financial losses. Similarly, if you are a cyclist or a pedestrian, the vehicle concerned should by law be insured. If however you are one of the 20,000 annual victims of accidents caused by an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run, the Motor Insurers Bureau https://www.mib.org.uk stands in the shoes of the motor insurer, so all is not lost.
A minor collision resulting in the vehicle occupants suffering minor whiplash type injuries can be handled relatively easily by your own insurer and their RTA case handlers and you wouldn’t normally need to use a specialist like Alma Law. But sadly, it has become commonplace to receive unwanted cold calls and text messages from companies offering £thousands for your claim. Do not be taken in by those messages. Call your insurer and report the accident and then, if your injuries are more than minor, call Alma Law. We will work with you and your family, your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company to secure an early admission of liability, good medical treatment and the highest amount of compensation to help put you back on the road again.
Our expertise extends to every type of scenario such as:
