Who pays for compensation in Caldicot? The answer is that whoever was responsible for the accident or incident has to pay if a claim for compensation is lodged and proven. There is however one proviso and that is that the person who is accountable cannot be the same person that has been injured. If it is, the claimant would end-up paying him/herself which is clearly nonsensical.
The person to blame is who pays for compensation in Caldicot
But to say it is the person held to blame for the accident/incident is something of an over simplification. In the majority of claims it is an insurance company that end up actually shelling out the money. That insurance company is the one retained by the person being sued for damages. That person could be the driver of a vehicle, a house-holder, or a body such as a company or a local authority.
Any businesses or organisation that welcomes members of the public into their domain must take out public liability insurance and it’s this insurance that actually pays out any personal injury compensation that gets awarded.
With a driver it’s his or her vehicle insurer that pays, and with a house-holder it’s his or her house-hold insurance company.
Any insurance holder will probably have to pay increased insurance premiums next time they renew their insurance if they have made a claim, but that as they say, is life.
Not who pays but how much they pay
That may answer the question of who pays for compensation in Caldicot, but what about how much compensation might be awarded to claimants in Caldicot? The answer to this one is slightly more straight-forward.
Whatever the nature of the injury that potential claimants may have suffered, the answer to how much compensation might be awarded can be found here on the Accident Advice Helpline. All anyone has to do is to take our 30-second test. Just locate our HOW MUCH compensation calculator and follow the instructions it gives.
The 30-second test has to validate any claim in theory before it values how much that claim could be worth. But if you have any problems getting an estimate, it may be that you’ve given an answer to one of the questions that suggests your claim may not be accepted.
If you can’t see what the problem is, you can have a chat with our customer support team and they will help.
