An injury lawyer in Thursford may be called on to deal with many types of accident claims, including claims for accidents such as:
- Car crashes
- Motorbike accidents
- Bicycling accidents
- Accidents with buses or coaches
- Heavy good vehicle accidents
- Accidents in the workplace
- Slip, trip and fall accidents
- Accidents on holiday
- Attacks by animals
- Defective products that cause harm
These are by no means the only accidents that occur, but as long as the one you were in fits the criteria, you will be able to claim compensation.
The criteria an injury lawyer in Thursford will need you to fit
Before anyone can make a claim our injury lawyer in Thursford has to make sure they fit the legal criteria, which is:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have been injured in the accident
- Your injuries must have warranted medical attention
- The accident must have happened with the last three years
As long as these rules apply to you, there are no accidents outside the scope of personal injury compensation claims.
Settlement of your claim
Many victims are put off making a claim because they think it is a lot of hassle, and then if the person is not well off enough to pay the compensation, it is all a waste of time. This is not usually the case.
Most personal injury claims are settled by either an insurance company or a government department or agency of some sort. These days all insurance premiums include third party cover, which is the part of the policy that pays any compensations claims made against the policyholder.
Government departments, government agencies and anything that is financed by public funds, is exempt from the need from insurance. These will pay any compensation claims out of their own funds, and have to be dealt with directly.
