Third party insurance cover
Many of the accident claims injury lawyers in Powfoot deal with have an insurance company involved somewhere. The majority of policies include what is called third party cover. This is the portion of the premium that pays for the eventuality of someone making a personal injury claim against you, if you have caused an accident in which they were injured.
Often, victims put off making a claim because of the financial effect on the guilty party. They don’t want to sue their boss for damages because they think it might cause the business to cease trading, or they wont sue their doctor because of the amount they think he will have to find. It is very rare that there is no insurance to cover the compensation and any related costs. Some of the policies are a legal requirement, and others by choice of the insured.
The two main insurances that are a legal requirement are employers liability and motor insurance.
- Motor insurance – It is illegal to ride or drive any sort of motorised vehicle on roads in the UK without at least having third party insurance.
- Employer’s liability insurance – Most employers are legally required to have this insurance. Employers will all be covered by a policy if an employee is injured in an accident at work.
