If you are injured in an accident while you are driving a mobility car, then whether or not your compensation claim is successful, as well as the amount you are entitled to, depends on whose fault the accident was.
It should not be assumed that the driver of a mobility car is automatically to blame for any Road Traffic Accident (RTA) they are involved in. However, motor insurance companies are reluctant to pay compensation and may attempt to argue that a driver of a mobility car is at fault to avoid paying compensation.
It is therefore especially important that you seek specialist legal advice, to put forward the best claim possible.
Our team of road accident claim lawyers are available throughout the week for a free phone consultation. Just fill out our website form and we will be in touch within 24 hours.
Let our team of experienced solicitors help you seek the compensation you deserve.
You should always contact a solicitor as soon as possible after an accident. The deadline for claiming is usually 3 years after the accident, but it is best to start the process early, while memories are fresh. Your solicitor will gather information on the accident and determine who was at fault. They will arrange a medical examination to determine the extent and impact of your injuries – you should also seek treatment from your doctor. They will seek an admission of fault by your opponent, to get early compensation to cover immediate costs incurred. They will negotiate a compensation amount if there is no admission of fault or take the case to court. The majority of cases are settled out of court, except when a settlement cannot be reached, or the value of the claim is disputed. They should support you throughout this process.
Our team of expert personal injury solicitors can help you start your claim today.
How long the claim takes depends on your injuries, the complexity of the case, and whether your opponent admits responsibility. It could take a few months (e.g. minor whiplash where the opponent admits responsibility), or longer (e.g. serious injuries, which have to stabilise to establish their full extent) An estimate of timescales can be made during an initial consultation.
If you caused the accident your claim is unlikely to succeed. If you were only partially responsible, it could be successful. If you were not responsible, your claim would hopefully succeed.
The amount you receive depends on nature and severity of injuries, as well as your costs and losses, including current or future earnings, medical expenses, care needs, home modifications or pain and suffering.
You may be entitled to reduced compensation if you were partly to blame for the accident.
Also, if you deal directly with your insurance company, you may receive less compensation. They may encourage you to use preferred solicitors, but you are also entitled to use a specialist personal injury firm to maximise your chances.
