Accidents happen to even the most responsible people, no one plans them. Unfortunately, personal injuries occur for which expenses result. This is where the myriad of regulations and agencies become a maze that confuses the best of us. According to a 2009 survey, there are over 1.5 uninsured drivers in the UK, and 20% were between the ages of 17 and 20. Also, the police have available ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), they are able to search and find if a vehicle is insured or not. It is illegal to drive an uninsured vehicle and over 180,000 vehicles were seized in 2009 with 194,000 convictions. There are severe penalties for operating without insurance but it still happens. You can be hit by an uninsured driver or suffer a “hit and run” (untraced) accident. Your legal remedies at this point become a bit more difficult and the legal issues as well.
Obviously the legal system is best navigated by experienced professionals. Maintaining an up to date knowledge of laws and regulations is more than a full time job and demands a dedicated approach. This is why it is the best choice to seek out professionals when dealing with the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident. There are various sources of recourse and relief which you can access via a competent claims management company.
When you need this type of assistance in processing road traffic accident claims, be sure to see if they offer a full data collection process. There are multiple details about the accident and your circumstances that will be instrumental in presenting your claim. The more astute companies use Google Maps to exactly pinpoint the accident location, this can be used to detail the particulars of the event and give serious documentation of angles, any signage, road conditions etc. that will affect the evidence of the claim or testimony. Expert companies will set up a claims process to deal with other parties, insurance, repair shops etc. They will also maintain contact with you with updates on claim progress, changes in any details of the situation. Several approaches can be used: a team of specialists or a single operative. Most will give you a choice of how to proceed. Since you want security for your information you can select the approach which best suits your own “comfort zone” of information sharing. The best companies preserve your security no matter what.
When you have had an auto accident, it is most likely the vehicle will be out of service for a while. Be sure you can have access to a rental. Also make sure you have compatibility with your current vehicle. If you have a family-size vehicle, you won't want to be stuck with a mini.
Be sure you deal with a company that has experience, skilled personnel and a genuine service attitude. Check references and testimonials and check them out legally for certifications and licenses as necessary before committing. The situation of having an accident is bad enough without having to deal with the consequences of a bad choice for claims assistance.
