    Injury solicitors in Hope Valley


    Injury Solicitors in Hope Valley

    When a person makes an injury claim there is quite often an insurance company involved. The main insurances that could be involved when using an injury solicitor in Hope Valley are:

    Motor insurance

    All road users in the UK must have valid and current motor insurance. As long as the person who causes the accident is abiding by the laws of the road their insurance company will pay the damages, and in the majority of cases also cover any legal expenses you have incurred with injury solicitors in Hope Valley. If someone who is uninsured causes an accident, then the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) will handle the claim. The MIB is a special body set up for people who are the victim of uninsured loss, and all insurers in the UK have to pay into it every year. The size of the payment is dependent on the turnover of the business.

    Public liability Insurance

    Public liability insurance covers businesses against accidents that hurt members of the general public, whilst the business is undertaking its duties. If someone were to hurt him or herself in a shop, theme park, or office, it would be the public liability insurance that would deal with the claim. As with motoring and car insurance, any business that the public has access to has to have public liability insurance. Your injury solicitors in Hope Valley would then deal with the insurance company on your behalf.

    Product Liability insurance

    This is for manufacturers, importers, producers and anyone else that supplies products to consumers. It covers any claims made due to a product being faulty.

    Professional Indemnity insurance

    This insurance is used when a business makes a mistake when they are carrying out their normal duties for their customers.

    Employers Liability insurance
