    Making sense of the compensation system

    The compensation insurance claim UK system is a transparent and fair system of awarding compensation to a person who has been injured as a result of an accident that was not their own fault. The person who was at fault for the accident is the person who pays the compensation, so the claim is made against them. However, in practice most people have an insurance policy that will pay the compensation if a claim is made against them. This ensures that they do not lose a huge amount of money and that the injured person will get the money that they deserve. This is why it is called the compensation insurance claim UK system.

    Motor insurance policies

    There are many types of insurance policies which cover this sort of issue. Motor insurance policies would cover road traffic accidents; workplace accident compensation is often paid out of an employer’s liability insurance policy; if you have a slip, trip or fall in a public space or building, then it is likely that a public liability insurance will pay out your compensation; and if you are injured when you are receiving medical treatment because you were given the wrong treatment, then the professional liability insurance policy of the medical professional involved may make the payout.

    The highly skilled personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline will help you to make your claim from the appropriate organisation.
