Can you make a compensation claim against a sole trader with injury solicitors in Wareham?
When a person suffers an injury because of a large or well-known company, they often have no qualms about making a compensation claim against them. As most people presume that larger companies have the finances to sustain such a claim, they normally aren’t reluctant to contact injury solicitors in Wareham or personal injury lawyers in order to obtain compensation for their injuries.
However, if a sole trader or a smaller business is responsible for your injuries, you may feel somewhat reluctant to contact injury solicitors in Wareham and to proceed with your claim. As many people presume that a sole trader will be paying the compensation to them directly, they may worry that their claim will put the company out of business or that they simply won’t be able to pay the compensation award anyway.
In actual fact, this isn’t always the case. In many instances, smaller businesses and larger firms will have exactly the same type of insurance in place so it may not make any difference whether the company is a sole trader or an international firm.
As many companies are required to have public liability insurance, if you make a claim against them with help from injury solicitors in Wareham, it’s likely that you’ll receive money from their insurers if your claim is successful, rather than the firm directly.
Whilst their premiums may increase as a result, they won’t be required to pay your compensation directly so even a sole trader or a smaller firm is unlikely to be negatively affected by your claim.
If you’ve been hurt because of a sole trader or a small business, why not contact injury solicitors in Wareham to find out more about making a compensation claim against them? Although you’ll need to show that they were responsible for your injuries in order to be eligible to obtain compensation, there’s no need for you to show that they intended to cause you harm in any way.
Although you should have plenty of time to contact injury solicitors in Wareham and make your claim following an incident, you should be aware that time limits can sometimes be imposed. In order to make sure that you don’t miss out on your chance to make a claim for compensation, you may want to contact injury solicitors in Wareham or a personal injury law firm within three years of your injuries occurring.
