If you are injured following a traffic accident, it can have all sorts of consequences on your life. Not only can a traffic injury be extremely painful but also it takes time to recover and you may have to take time off work, which could leave you out of pocket. Therefore, it is only fair that you make a claim for damages and compensation if the accident was somebody else’s fault. After all, why should you have to suffer the financial consequences of somebody else’s mistake?
Filing a claim for compensation is daunting for many people and one of the major issues people have is the cost of taking somebody to court. In addition, people are often confused as to who pays for a traffic injury. After all, there is little point in taking somebody to court for compensation if they have no money, or is there?

Traffic injury compensation
It doesn’t matter how much money the other driver has as their insurers pay for all traffic injury compensation. It is a legal requirement for all people that drive to have some form of motor insurance, so if you are injured following an accident that was somebody else’s fault, any compensation and damages is paid for by the insurance company representing the driver whose fault it was. The amount of compensation does vary, depending on the severity of the injuries you have received and the impact they have had on your life.
