Can I make a claim if I am at fault?

If you are 100% to blame for the accident, unfortunately, there is no legal basis to make a claim. However, there are times when you might be partially at fault and in this case you might have a chance to claim and split the compensation on a 50/50 basis.
Contact us and one of our qualified claim handlers will talk to you for advice on whether you have the potential for a successful claim.

Can I claim if I was not wearing a seatbelt?

Wearing a seatbelt is a recommendation for your own safety, however, sometimes people just forget to wear it. If this is the case, you can still make an accident claim, but the amount of compensation might be slightly lower than you would get if a seatbelt was worn.

Should I claim if a friend or relative was driving and caused the accident?

Road traffic accidents can cause physical injury, stress, and sometimes an absence of work resulting in loss of earnings. Furthermore, some people experience a fear of being in a vehicle due to psychological trauma. Therefore, we understand that you might not want to claim against your friend or relative.

However, there are a few things you should know which might change the situation.
Most passengers are afraid to claim because they think that driver needs to pay the compensation from their own pocket. However, it is the insurance company which pays the compensation, therefore you do not need to worry about your friend’s or relative’s finances. Insurance premium is another sensitive topic when speaking about compensation claims. It is very likely that the fault driver’s insurance will increase, but getting the support you need to recover from injuries following a car accident is paramount as they can have long lasting results to your lifestyle and affect those around you too.
