Customer Question

I was involved in car accident on uber yesterday. I was a rider and the driver has got hit by another car next to us which could not follow the movement of cyclist nearby. Because of the accident, I could not attend my class. After the accident, I went to see doctor because I had headache, neck pain, back pain and nausea. Do you think I can ask for money from the driver, because of my injury and absence in school?

Potentially you can make a claim, assuming the driver was negligent. How much you can claim depends on the injury and how long it lasts. Up to a week you are looking at around £500, up to a month £1,200 and 3 months £2,000Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

Should I claim to the drivers insurance company?
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
I still dont understand? You dont need a certification. If you go to a lawyer they can prepare a case for you. You will need to medically examined by an independent GP. That GP will give a prognosis for recovery and that is when you know how much you can claim.But its likely to be less than £10,000. Can I clarify anything for you?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okey, are they also cover my medical treatment fee which was about 150 pounds yesterday? It was expensive because I went to Japanese clinic
