If you have been injured in an accident that you did not cause then you may well already be aware that the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a claim for compensation. This is fair enough, and you may be tempted to pursue this option, but you might be concerned about claiming for accident expenses in Oxfordshire.
Again, this is a fair enough thing to wonder about, after all you may well be of the belief that it was just an accident and the person responsible did not mean to cause you injury. However, while you may not want them to suffer financially there is also an argument that says you should not have to pick up the financial burden either.
Claiming for accident expenses in Oxfordshire is a difficult process
The simple truth is that the person, or organisations who pick up the bill when it comes to covering the cost of your compensation will vary depending on the precise details of your accident. If you have been involved in an accident on the roads, perhaps you have been hit by another road user, then it is logical to assume that their insurance provider is going to end up covering the cost of your compensation claim. This is, after all, one of the things that car insurance is used for, and why it is a legal requirement to have it.
If however your accident occurs in your place of work then there is every chance that your employer will have to foot the bill via their employer’s liability insurance. Again this is a legal requirement and it is there to protect workers who may be injured, and employers who would not necessarily be able to afford the compensation claim on their own.
The good thing about having such insurance is that you as an employee do not need to worry about causing financial difficulties for your employer, and potentially putting the business or jobs at risk. This is something that you just do not have to worry about – so making a claim for compensation is always a good idea.
