    Injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon


    What insurance do I claim against for an Injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon?

    Stoke Sub Hamdon is a big village in South Somerset.  The population there is 2,234. The parish is located near the River Parrett, and includes the village of East Stoke.

    If you want to make an injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon, nearly all cases will involve an insurance company, as most situations, people, or organisations have insurance cover of some sort.  The main ones are:

    • Employers liability insurance
    • Product liability insurance
    • Motor insurance
    • Public liability insurance

    If you have had a traffic accident and the other party was uninsured, your injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon would be with the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB), which is there to make sure a non fault victim of an accident does not lose out because of the lack of insurance.

    If you need to claim against your Employers liability insurance

    Employers have a legal responsibility to protect their employees.  Most do, but if they do not and you have an accident you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon.  Employers have a legal duty to have employers’ liability insurance, with a minimum cover of £5,000,000 although most insurance companies have an entry level of £10,000,000.

    If the claim relates to Product liability insurance

    Retailers and wholesalers are only usually held accountable if they knowingly sell a faulty product.  The liability in most cases lies with the manufacturers, producers and importers to ensure that the products are safe and that consumers are aware of any risks there may be.  If you are harmed because of a defective product you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Stoke Sub Hamdon.
