In order to qualify for a compensation award from a third party you must be completely blameless for the incident occurring. If you contributed towards the accident taking place in any way a compensation award will not be made no matter what degree of injury you have sustained. There is a notable difference between a blameless victim and a responsible third party; the following examples with give you a clear idea between blameless and responsible:

If you are driving along a main road and a car is waiting at a give way sign to pull out then you have right of way on the road and you do not need to let them out. If that car pulls out at the give way sign and crashes into your car then they are automatically to blame for the incident. It is very difficult to avoid this kind of incident if you are the road user with right of way because you naturally expect the car without right of way to wait for you to pass.

If you swap roles and take the place of the driver waiting at the give way junction you would be in a different position entirely. If you pull out at the give way sign and collide with a vehicle using the main road you are automatically to blame for the incident occurring as you caused the accident.in this instance even if the other car on the main road drove in to the side of your car you would not be able to make a claim.

Following a car or motorbike accident you may experience additional losses on top of the suffering you have already had to endure because of your physical injury; Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make a claim for any additional losses you have incurred as a result of your accident.
