How to seek accident compensation in the UK
If you or any member of your family have been involved in an accident over the last three years, at no fault of your own, you are most likely eligible for compensation.
Victims of traffic-related accidents (involving pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, bikers, buses, taxis, someone else’s car, e.g. friend or relative) may be entitled to compensation.
To make sure you follow the correct procedure, and that you are fully compliant with the law, you should solicit the advice of professional services before seeking compensation for personal injury or loss. Identify what category of accident you were involved in and follow the guidelines outlined by an expert professional.
