    Injury Solicitors in Darley Abbey

    Darley Abbey is a village on the outskirts of Derby. Between 1250 and 1252 Ralph, son of Ralph de Wistanton, made numerous donations to the abbey. This was unusual for a man who is described as “of quite limited resources”. The reason for his donations was that he had fallen foul of Jewish money-lenders. By donating his possessions to the abbey, Ralph could deprive the money-lenders of what he owed them, as Jews could not seize church property.

    Injury solicitors in Darley Abbey are concerned about the number of road traffic accidents

    Road traffic accidents are a major cause of deaths in the UK, 1680 people dying on our road in the year ended March 2013 with another 23,660 sustaining serious injuries, and these figures are slightly less than for 2012.  Overall in that period there were 188,890 reported accidents that resulted in an injury of some sort.

    Many of those accidents will not have been the fault of the injured parties making an awful lot of victims who could make a personal injury compensation claim.  They could even use the services of injury solicitors in Darley Abbey if they wanted to.

    The criteria you need to fit to make a personal injury claim

    The criteria is not complicated but you must fit it to be able to make a claim:

    • The accident should have happened within the last three years
    • It should not have been your fault
    • You should have been injured in the accident
    • You should have sought medical attention for your injuries

    The various parts of your claim

    Your injury claim would be made up of several things and may include:

    • Anxiety and stress
    • Loss of earnings, past and future
    • Replacement of equipment and accessories
    • Medical costs
    • Care costs
    • Home adaption or home moving costs
    • Possible effects on your future life
    • Any or costs, or losses, that occur as a direct result of the accident

    Who pays the claim?

    In the case of a road traffic accident, this would generally be one of two organisations.  The first port of call would be the other drivers insurance company but if they turn out to be uninsured for some reason, the claim would be made with the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB)

    Anyone who offers motor insurance has to be a member of the MIB.  They exist to ensure that non-fault victims of road traffic accidents do not lose out because of a lack of insurance.  The motor insurance companies have to pay the MIB a levy each year to fund these compensation payments.
