When you work, as we do, in every area of the country you find that different areas tend to have their different quirks in terms of the types of claims people make. For those claiming compensation in Fenland, it often tends to be road traffic accidents caused by narrow roads.
Driving in Fenland
Driving around this area can be tricky. They are small roads, and although there are passing places, it’s all too easy for people to make a misjudgement. Most of the time this results in a simple shunt which means your insurance companies will have to battle it out over who picks up the tab, but when there is an injury involved, that’s when things get complicated.
If you’ve been involved in a traffic accident, there are certain rules surrounding who picks up the bill. We are all required by law to carry third party car insurance which covers us for any accident that we cause. In the case of a personal injury claim, the money will be paid by the insurance company of the party judged to have been responsible for the crash.

If you have any supporting evidence, now is the time to tell us about it. For example, if you have the names and contact numbers of witnesses at the scene it is a good idea to hand them over to us. You do not need to contact them – we’ll do that ourselves. Remember – as long as you’re confident that you are in the right, it is in your interests to have as much information in front of the court as possible.
The next thing we need to do is assess the level of compensation you deserve. We do this by looking at the actual injury itself and assessing any costs which may have arisen from it. This enables us to come up with a rough estimate of your compensation which you can use to set expectations as you go forward.
