Who settles accident claims in Lancaster?
This depends on what type of accident you were injured in, but it is usually a large organisation of sorts. Many of the claims are settled by insurance companies as most situations are insured in some way, but there are times when accidents happen and no insurance is involved.
The police and emergency services for instance, as government departments are exempt from the law that says they must be insured, and in these type of situations, they have to be dealt with directly, and they settle the claims themselves.
