Being insured against personal injury, whether associated with your car, work or something more general does not have to affect the ability to claim compensation with a company like Accident Advice Helpline.
Maybe your particular incident is not covered by your insurance policy or maybe the payout is not what you feel you are entitled to. If this is the case then call Accident Advice Helpline’s freephone number and discuss your claim with one of our friendly advisors.
If you have had a road traffic accident in the last three years which was not your fault then you can make a claim for compensation.
It is a legal necessity to have insurance and you must tell the insurance company about any accident on the road that you have, however, the claim for compensation does not have to go through your insurance company.
You have to co-operate with your insurer but you shouldn’t make any statements about liability for the accident and consulting Accident Advice Helpline is a good move at this stage. It is also wise not to communicate with the other driver’s insurance company; allow your lawyer to deal with this.
You may have a workplace insurance policy, either taken out by yourself or through your employer. In the event of any work accident, check this policy first but if there is any reluctance from your employer then you can go further with Accident Advice Helpline.
Injuries in a public place
Businesses should have public liability insurance in place to respond to any claims for compensation following accidents on their premises that are a result of their negligence. If you suffer a slip, trip, fall or other accident then call Accident Advice Helpline to see how best to deal with your case.
As a general rule, you shouldn’t discount claiming for compensation even if an insurer covers the accident that you have had, regardless of if it is work accident, car crash or something else. Accident Advice Helpline can help with instances where normal insurance will not suffice so it is worth talking to our experienced legal team to see where you stand.
If you are not satisfied with the results from your insurance company following your road traffic related injury then call our Freephone number, 0800 689 0500, for a consultation today.
