Every victim reacts differently to being injured in an accident that was not their fault. No two accidents, injuries or victims are the same, and this means that every personal injury compensation claim is unique.
Common accidents include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Holiday accidents
- Accidents in schools
- Animal attacks
- Work related accidents
- Industrial illnesses and conditions
- Food poisoning
- Slips, trips and falls
With over 3 million accidents happening every year in Britain, there will be lots of innocent victims, injured in accidents that were no fault of their own.
Finding who is responsible for motorbike accidents in South Derbyshire
Every accident is the fault of someone, even if it is the injured party themselves.
Most motorbike accidents in South Derbyshire are covered by insurance, and it is the insurance companies that settle the claims.
But if your accident happens to be with a police vehicle, or any other emergency vehicle, they are exempt from motor insurance, as are all government departments, and anything funded by public money. The cost of insuring the police force would be astronomical, so any claims against them are settled from government funds
Then there are the situations where the other driver was not insured. The claims are then referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). The MIB exists to make sure faultless victims do not lose out on their compensation because of a lack of insurance. The insurance companies who pay a levy to it each year fund it. The amount they pay is based on the amount of motor insurance they handle.
