Accident Claims Explained

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 3, 2009) - Thousands of people each year are involved in accidents which are not their fault. The injuries sustained are often traumatic and in many cases they are severe enough to prevent them from carrying out their usual employment and therefore prevent them from receiving their usual income.

In many cases the person who has been injured may be able to make a claim for loss of earnings and for the pain and suffering they have endured. These claims are known as personal injury claims or sometimes called accident claims. The term refers to a claim associated with an accident in which a third party is responsible for injuries or damage sustained. Their responsibility may be due to negligence or failure to take reasonable care.

Michael Jefferies from the accident claims solicitors, First Personal Injury, explained that the number of non fault accident claims is rising significantly annually but that people could be better informed about the options which are available to them when the find themselves in this situation. He believes that most claimants opt to make their claim through their insurance company and in doing so affect their no claims bonus and cost of their annual renewal premium. Most people are not aware that they can make a claim by using an accident claims solicitor and in doing so avoid involving their insurance company altogether.

Unfortunately, accidents can happen to anyone at anytime with sometimes horrific consequences. If the accident was not your fault it is your legal and civil right to make an accident claim to compensate you for your loss or injuries. Many personal injury solicitors, like First Personal Injury work on a no win, no fee basis which means that the claimant receives 100% of the compensation and does not incur any costs. Making your claim in this way rather than through you insurance company also avoids and detrimental affect to your no claims bonus or annual insurance renewal premium.

First Personal Injury has been acting on behalf of non fault accident claimants for over 15 years. Their objective is to assist the claimant to receive the compensation that they are entitled to whether it is for injury, damage to property or in the case of car accidents, expenses like replacement hire cars.
