MIB CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

Have you been involved in an accident? There are thousands of drivers on the road who do not have insurance cover. If you are unlucky enough to be involved in an accident with one, you need to be aware of the special rules that apply to these claims. Just because the driver is not insured does not mean you cannot claim. What is MIB? The Motor Insurers Bureau, known sometimes as the “MIB” manages a fund that pays compensation to the victims of uninsured and untraced drivers. There are some special rules to follow when you claim against an uninsured driver. Failure to follow the rules can be fatal to your claim. Our team of personal injury lawyers have won many claims for compensation from the Motor Insurers Bureau.

PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLIST CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

Pedestrians and cyclists are very vulnerable and often sustain very serious personal injuries if they are unfortunate enough to be in collision with a motor vehicle. Hundreds of pedestrians are injured by cyclists in the UK every year, many of them seriously, and occasionally fatally. While local government continues to encourage cycling as an environmentally friendly means of reducing congestion, the anger felt by many at the number of serious injuries sustained by pedestrians involved in collisions with bicycles was illustrated by a private members’ bill introduced in Parliament in 2011, which aimed to create a crime of causing death or serious injury through dangerous or reckless cycling. Those who would like to see legislation in this area highlight the perceived arrogance of many cyclists, and their general disregard of pedestrian safety. At Pennine Solicitors we can pursue the insurance company of the driver involved, to secure compensation for your injuries and any financial loss you may have sustained.

PASSENGER CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

It is not only drivers of motor vehicles who are entitled to make a claim in the event of an accident, passengers will also have a case for compensation as they are usually the innocent party when a car crash occurs; this includes not only car passengers but passengers traveling on public transport such as taxis and buses. Our lawyers have experience with a broad range of road traffic accident claims, including those where passengers are injured. The driver of any vehicle is responsible for the safety of their passengers. If reckless or negligent driving on the part of the driver of your vehicle caused your injuries, you can contact a lawyer to make a compensation claim against them. You can also claim compensation as a passenger if the driver of another vehicle was responsible. Accidents could be caused by a road user driving carelessly, recklessly, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a passenger in a road traffic accident, call us on 01706 671 434 or contact us online to arrange a free initial consultation about your case.

WHIPLASH INJURY CLAIMS

January 11, 2019

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries associated with road traffic collisions and is caused by the head being violently thrown forward and then back again in a whipping motion. It can sometimes take several days before the injury becomes evident and symptoms can include; neck and shoulder pain, nausea, headaches and in some cases can lead to depression. Compensation is there to get you back to the same position you were in before an accident so there is an amount of money awarded by the courts depending on how serious the whiplash injury was, and also to cover any out of pocket expenses. We can help you recover thousands of pounds of compensation that you are legally entitled to if you’ve suffered whiplash in an accident that wasn’t your fault. We have a specialist team of Solicitors dealing almost exclusively with whiplash compensation and similar injuries. In addition our LVI (low velocity impact) team handle claims where genuine injuries have been caused by low speed collisions where insurance usually fight claims against them as a matter of course often with unfounded allegations of fraud.
