Accidents can be extremely disruptive to your life and cause considerable financial loss. Accident damage can occur to both your property and your person. If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Negligent or drunk drivers are a common cause of an accident. Damage to your vehicle as a result of a road-traffic accident will be covered by insurance companies. If the driver at fault does not have insurance, compensation may be claimed from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. The more serious consequence of physical injury as a result from a road-traffic accident may require more consideration. The long-term results of a physical injury can include loss of future earnings and significant pay outs for health care. If your injury prevents you from working again and you need to employ full-time healthcare (this can include a close family member who has given up their job to care for you), you may be entitled to receive compensation.
An accident damage claim can be made to the courts in order to claim damages covering both accumulated and future costs. These claims are brought in tort. A tort is a civil wrong and tort law allows individuals to claim compensation from those who violate their private rights. The amount of compensation will vary from case to case and be based on individual circumstances.
