Does product liability insurance cover injuries?
Generally, most companies which produce goods do have product liability insurance. This insurance means that if anyone is hurt by their products and claims compensation, their insurer will cover the cost of the claim.
If, for example, you purchase something and a design fault means that it’s dangerous and you suffer an injury, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim with a personal injury solicitor in Ludgershall. If your claim with an accident solicitor in Ludgershall is successful, you will receive compensation but it may be the insurer that pays the compensation, rather than the company.
Although the type of insurance a company has may affect where the compensation actually comes from, it shouldn’t affect the amount that you receive in any way. Normally, the amount of compensation you receive when you make a claim with an accident solicitor in Ludgershall will be influenced by your injuries and the impact they’ve had on your life so this assessment process won’t change if the company is insured or not.
When should I make a claim with an accident solicitor in Ludgershall?
If you’ve been hurt and the injury wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to make a claim with an injury solicitor in Ludgershall. Although many injuries are caused by other people, in some instances people are actually hurt by inanimate objects, such as a faulty or defective product.
If this was the cause of your injury, the company which produced the item could be held liable so you could still make a claim with an injury solicitor in Ludgershall and you could still receive a sizeable amount of compensation.
