    Who pays for compensation in Newcastle-under-Lyme?


    We are one of the UK’s leading injury law firms, and one of the services that we provide is a helpline where accident victims can get legal advice about making a personal injury claim. One of the questions that our advisors are often asked is who pays their compensation, so just who pays for compensation in Newcastle-under-Lyme?

    Who pays for compensation in Newcastle-under-Lyme?

    Personal injury claims are paid by insurance companies. So if you are injured in a car accident, for example, the motor insurer of whoever was responsible for your accident would settle your claim. If you are injured in an accident in a shop or public place, your claim would be settled by the public liability insurer of whoever was responsible for keeping that space safe for public use.

    Are you owed compensation?

    You can claim personal injury compensation for any injury providing that the accident that you were involved in was someone else’s fault, and that accident took place within the past three years. If you would like us to confirm that you meet the criteria for claiming please give our helpline a call, one of our advisors will be happy to help you.

    How much compensation are you owed?

    Various factors are taken into account when deciding how much compensation money an accident victim should be given for their injury:

    • How serious the claimant’s injury was
    • How much the claimant’s injury affected their life and mental wellbeing, and
    • How much the claimant is owed for lost earnings and accident-related expenses

    You can get an idea of how much your compensation claim could be worth by using the simple compensation calculator tool on our website.
