Personal injury lawyer in Kinloch Rannoch
If you are a driver, you will probably be generally safe on the road, but sometimes accidents can happen. If you have been injured in a car crash of which you are a blameless victim, then you may want to use a personal injury lawyer in Kinloch Rannoch in order to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Each collision is unique and there can be many causes for them, although the most common is driver error, often through lack of concentration.
The criteria for making a claim
The criteria for making a claim are that:
- You should have needed medical attention for your injuries;
- The accident should have happened within the last three years; and
- The accident should not have been your fault.
What a personal injury lawyer in Kinloch Rannoch would make a claim for
This depends on the severity of your injuries, how long it will take to recover and many other factors, but can include:
- Loss of earnings;
- Travel expenses;
- Medical expenses;
- Care costs;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Anxiety and stress.
Who settles the claim?
Normally this would be the insurance company of the guilty driver, but sometimes that is not possible. If the driver is uninsured, or in the case of an untraceable driver, the case goes to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) to process your compensation claim.
Any insurance company that offers motor insurance has to be a member of the MIB. The insurance companies have to pay the MIB a yearly levy, which is then used to compensate injured parties making their claim to them.
If the accident was caused by a pothole or bad road surface, then the compensation claim would be made against the local authority responsible for maintaining the road.
