Who you need to deal with
When you are making a personal injury claim, the majority of cases will involve an insurance company of some sort. If you are prepared to pay the premiums, anything can be insured these days and most situations, people or organisations have insurance cover. Generally it is the insurance company that settles the claim and the main ones that would be involved in personal injury are:
- Motor insurance
- Public liability insurance
- Employer’s liability insurance
- Product liability insurance
- Professional indemnity insurance
There are some organisations that are exempt from having insurances, such as government departments. The police for instance, do not have motor insurance and the government as an employer does not have employer’s liability insurance. It does not mean they do not settle the personal injuries claims, they just settle them themselves.
Dealing with insurance companies or any other large organisation can be very difficult. They usually have complicated forms with awkward questions. Not a problem for the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline. They have dealt with many thousands of claims and dealing with the forms, the questions and the organisations is a daily occurrence for them. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience that is invaluable when making a personal injury compensation claim.
The other organisations
Sometimes after a road traffic accident you discover the other driver was not insured. In this case the claim would be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau who pay the claims of victims in this instance. All motor insurance companies pay a levy to them every year, and it is this that is used to pay any claims they have to settle.
If your injuries were because of a crime of violence you would claim your compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, which is funded by the government.
