    Road accident in Bedfordshire


    The law in the UK says that if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are entitled to compensation. If the incident happens to be a road accident in Bedfordshire, you would possibly be looking for compensation from the other driver, but possibly not.

    Claiming for a road accident in Bedfordshire

    Generally, a compensation claim for a road accident in Bedfordshire would be settled by one of four bodies:

    • A motor insurance company, if another driver was at fault for the accident in which you were injured;
    • A local authority, if a pothole which should have been repaired caused your accident;
    • The Motor Insurers’ Bureau, if the other driver was uninsured or untraceable; or
    • The government department or agency responsible for the other vehicle involved in the accident, for example the police if the accident involved a police car.

    No matter which of these it is that settles your claim, they will be looking for evidence that you were not at fault, and of the severity of your injuries.

    Claiming for an accident at work

    What if the incident which caused your injuries was an accident at work? All employers have a duty to keep their employees safe while they are at work. If they fail in this duty and you are injured because of their negligence, you can claim compensation.

    If you work for a private employer, employers’ liability insurance will settle your claim; if you work for the government in any way, they are exempt from insurance and will have to pay your compensation out of their own funds.

    Claiming for an accident in a public place

    Anywhere the public venture has to have public liability insurance. Shops, cafes, bars, cinemas, theme parks, offices, and factories all have limitless cover in case a member of the public is injured on their premises. This is a legal requirement.
