    Young driver accidents

    Young driver accident claims

    Being involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault is stressful at the best of times, and sometimes even more so if you are a young driver. If you are involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, your solicitor can organise a replacement hire vehicle while your car is being fixed. However, if you are under the age of 25, it can be difficult to obtain a hire vehicle following an accident.

    Most high street rental companies require drivers to be a ‘minimum age’ before they can avail of their rental service. This can present an extra challenge for a young driver, who has already been put out as a result of a collision that wasn’t their fault.

    At Watermans, we are able to offer assistance to young drivers by finding a hire provider who will be able to supply them with a vehicle and get them back on the road.

    Watermans help by taking the hassle out of the legal process for you. We can take care of the repairs to your damaged vehicle, help you to make a claim for any injuries as well as recover back any out of pocket expenses you have suffered as a result of the accident.

    Making a claim

    How do I make a young driver accident claim?

    Following an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may think that the first thing you should do is make a car insurance claim.

    Although it is important to act quickly after an accident, as a young driver you may be better off contacting a solicitor to work your case. There is no guarantee that you will receive a replacement car when you use your insurance company, however by making a claim with Watermans, we are able to help young drivers to find a replacement hire car as soon as possible.
