    Who pays for compensation in Herefordshire?


    If you’ve been involved in a car accident, a work-related injury or another type of local incident which wasn’t your fault, you’re most probably wondering who it is who pays for compensation in Herefordshire.

    Who pays for compensation in Herefordshire?

    When it comes to all aspects of personal injury claims, we are the experts who can help you find the answers to your queries.

    You’re always welcome to call our 24/7 Freephone hotline and speak to one of our friendly advisors. But just in case you like reading up on the facts first, here’s a few common questions regarding who pays for compensation in Herefordshire.

    • If I get injured at work, will my boss have to cut into their profits to pay me?
      No, they won’t. This is due to a type of insurance known as employer’s liability insurance. Employers are required by law to purchase this in order to cover costs for illnesses and injuries sustained by their employees. An exception is sometimes motor accident injuries, as they can be covered alternatively by third party motorist insurance.
    • If I sue my local council for injuries I sustained from a cracked pavement, do my taxes pay towards my compensation?
      This is a debatable one. Directly, the answer is most likely no – councils can take out public liability insurance to cover such incidents. This insurance covers claims made by the general public or businesses, and encompasses most public places.Technically, you could say that your taxes pay towards the council’s insurance payments which in turn enable the company to pay you. But in terms of the full amount your compensation will cost, that’s coming directly from the company itself, not the council.
