Frequently Asked Questions to an experienced accident solicitor in Wolverhampton
I was hit by a driver who was not insured, can I still make a claim?
Many people think that if they have been hit by an uninsured driver then they won’t be able to make a compensation claim. Fortunately, this is not the case as there is an organisation called the Motor Insurer’s’ Bureau (MIB) via which we can probably still make a claim for you even if the driver was uninsured or untraceable. Get in touch today if you need to speak to an experienced accident solicitor in Wolverhampton.
I fell on a wet floor, is it my fault?
Many people worry that if their injuries were caused as a result of slipping on wet floor then they are somehow to blame because perhaps they were not paying enough attention. However, in terms of who is ultimately responsible, it does depend on the specific circumstances.
For example, if you are in a public place, perhaps a supermarket, and the floor has been cleaned by a member of stuff, which has resulted in the floor being wet and slippery, and it has not been marked as such in an appropriate manner, then it would not be your fault if you fell and injured yourself. The accident would have been caused by someone else’s negligence and failure to take the proper steps and precautions necessary to keep you, and other members of the public safe.
Equally, it can even be possible to make a compensation claim in Wolverhampton if you have slipped in the bath whilst in a hotel. While it may seem illogical, baths are naturally slippy areas, but if the hotel did not provide a slip-free mat, thereby leaving you no option of ensuring your safety, it could be that they would be liable for any injury you sustained.
Surely if it was an “accident” I can’t make a claim!
We fully understand that accidents do happen. People do not mean for them to happen; however, that does not detract from the fact that you have been involved in an accident and have therefore been injured as a result. You might even have been seriously injured, and this could have a negative impact on your day to day life and result in loss of earnings or other out of pocket expenses. Just because it was an accident does not mean you have not suffered. You are therefore perfectly entitled to make a compensation claim in Wolverhampton, the law even says so.
