Who pays Exeter compensation?
That depends on the type of accident and who was responsible:
- For a road traffic accident the first port of call would be the insurance company but if the other person is not insured or untraceable, the case would be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) who are meant to ensure victims of uninsured or untraceable drivers do not lose out because if the lack of insurance.
- For a slip, trip or fall in a pubic place it is more than likely the local authority who responsibility it is to maintain the pavements and highways. They will have public liability insurance to cover such incidents.
- For an accident at work it would be the insurance company that provides your employers with employers liability insurance. There are a few exceptions, such as government bodies, health trusts, etc. but generally it is the insurance companies that pay out on these claims.
- Criminal injuries are dealt with by the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, a government funded scheme to compensate blameless victims of violent crime.
- Medical negligence depends on whether the claim is against a GP or a hospital but it would either be the insurance company that provides public liability insurance or the health trust.
