Who settles a Wealden, no win no fee* accident claim?
This depends on what type of accident you were injured in, a few examples are:
- A road traffic accident would normally be settled by an insurance company. If there is no insurance for some reason, such as a stolen car causing the accident, the Motor Insurers Bureau steps in. They are there to settle compensation claims where there is a lack of insurance. The other possibility of no insurance is if the accident was caused by someone like the police, who are government funded. They are exempt from the need for insurance of any sort and settle claims from their own funds.
- An accident at work would normally be settled by your employers liability insurance.
- Medical negligence could be settled by an NHS trust or professional indemnity insurance.
- Slips, trips, and falls are usually settled by public liability insurance, as most of them happen in public places.
- Claims for injuries sustained in violent crimes would be settled by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
- Product liability insurance would settle claims against makers and importers if a product they supply to consumers is unsafe and causes harm.
There are other organisations that would settle a no win no fee* accident claim, but it would be very rare for the compensation to come out of the pockets of the person that actually caused the accident.
