Someone injured on the road might be wondering, “Who do I claim against for a lorry road accident?” The company that owns the lorry will be responsible and any claim for personal injury compensation will be made against the company’s insurance. You may be the driver of the lorry and have been injured as the result of a poorly maintained vehicle, or you may have been in another vehicle or on foot when the lorry accident occurred. The vehicle owners have responsibility for ensuring the safety of both the driver and the public while the vehicle is on the road; if something has been overlooked that has in turn led to the accident, you may be able to make a claim.
Accidents do happen and here at Accident Advice Helpline we understand that injuries cannot always be avoided. Our law firm was established 13 years ago and is staffed by experienced legal professionals specialising in personal injury claims. Our system allows us to work on a no win, no fee basis; therefore, we can work on your behalf if you do not have the funds to begin legal action.
Making a claim might sound like a stressful process but it is important to do so if you can, as it can really help you out financially. Taking time off work to recover from injuries can cause financial problems, as there will still be bills to pay and it could be that your own circumstances are reduced if you are unable to work. This is something that will affect the whole family, so making a claim is important.
If you are concerned about who you claim against for a lorry road accident, you should not think that you are putting an individual out of pocket. Insurance is in place to cover accidents such as this, and the sooner you talk to the Accident Advice Helpline about getting the justice and compensation that you deserve the better. If you have any questions at all about the claims process then ask us – our experts are on hand to answer your questions. We will be able to find out who the claim should be made against and will then deal with it on your behalf. We will not ask you to intervene with the other party at any point during the process.
It is important to remember that making a personal injury claim can also lead to changes in the way that companies and individuals behave, which will reduce the possibility of an accident in the future. Do not ever think that it is not worth pursuing a claim. Even a minor injury can affect your ability to work and change the way you live your life; therefore, making a claim is advisable.
