If you’ve had an accident and you were injured as a result, you might have been advised by people to make a claim. This is all very well, but you might have no idea how to go about it.
Thoughts you might have after your accident
Who are you claiming against? Will you even be eligible to claim? Is there any point?
These are all questions that people ask themselves after an accident and it can often put people off making a claim through an accident solicitor in Milford Haven. Some people feel that it’s wrong to claim against their employer, or that claiming against someone who rammed into their car might cause that other driver (even though it was their fault) serious financial problems.
They may also wonder whether they’re even eligible to claim – is a whiplash injury even serious enough to warrant claiming? What about a broken wrist?
Who you are claiming against
You don’t need to worry about causing any distress to the party at fault if you decide to claim, because a payout, if made, will come from that person or company’s insurer. If it’s your employer, they will have an employer’s liability insurance policy for the very purpose of paying out compensation for any claims made against them.
If it’s the other driver – the one who caused the accident you were in – your compensation will be paid by that driver’s insurer. If they weren’t insured, it will be paid by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
An accident solicitor in Milford Haven will deal with insurers on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry about having to enter into any dealings with them yourself. It’s also unlikely that you will need to go to court, too – insurers usually prefer to settle out of court!
