Serious injury Lawyers in Relubbus and the insurance companies
If you have been unlucky enough to be injured in an accident that was not your fault, and those injuries were severe enough to need medical attention, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. When the serious injury lawyers in Relubbus make a claim, often at the other end there is an insurance company to settle the amount. As far as personal injury claims are concerned, there are five main types of insurance and here the serious injury lawyers in Relubbus are going to explain them.
Motor insurance is probably the best known. It covers motorists of any sort while on the road. It is illegal to be on UK roads without it and as well as covering the loss or damage to your vehicle, also covers personal injury claims from a third party.
Professional Indemnity Insurance
This is for professional persons , to be used in the case that they have an injury claim filed against them in the course of their profession. This would include, doctors, dentists and opticians as well as any staff that work for them.
Public Liability Insurance
Public liability is an insurance to cover the public no matter where they may be. Businesses and local authorities as well as health trusts and the like have this sort of cover. There is no limit on the cover this type of insurance gives.
Product Liability Insurance
Manufacturers, producers and importers have a legal duty to ensure that the products they sell to consumers are safe or at the very least, they need to warn consumers of the potential risks. If they fail in this duty and a faulty product injures you, your injury claim would be settled by their insurance company.
Employer’s Liability Insurance
Every employer in the UK has a legal duty to protect the welfare, health and safety of their employees while in the workplace. They need to put measures in place to make sure they comply with all the rules and regulation applying to their trade and if the fail to comply, they could face a personal injury compensation claim. Legally they have to have a minimum cover of £5,000,000.
