Fundamental Dishonesty in Personal Injury Claims

When you have an accident and suffer loss, the law says that you should be put in the same position as if the accident never happened. So, say you lost income you will be compensated for the precise amount of the loss. Injuries are given a financial value and once more you receive money for the injuries suffered in the accident. But, what if you try to profit or gain from an accident. Can you do this? Well, unfortunately not. Moreover, the implications of putting forward a claim that is not honest and genuine are very serious indeed.

Accidents with Uninsured and Untraced Drivers

Many of you will have seen the advertisement on television from a certain insurance company saying that if you have an accident with an uninsured motorist they won’t penalise you like their competitors. There are at any one time in the UK many hundreds of thousands of dishonest motorists who deliberately do not insure their cars. So what happens if you have the misfortune to have an accident caused by either an uninsured or untraced motorist?

Accidents Involving Children

Accidents happen and if accidents happen then sometimes children will be involved. A person is classified as a child in the UK if they are below the age of 18. Once they attain that milestone then they are assumed to have full legal capacity. Before the age of 18 a child has no legal capacity. In terms of accident claims this means that the child (or minor as they are sometimes called) cannot themselves progress or defend a claim. So if the child cannot deal with the case, who does?

Motorcycle accidents

Like all other road users, motorcycle riders owe the same duty of care as other users of the highway. However, save from cyclists, motorcyclists are unique in not being cocooned within a vehicle and are therefore uniquely vulnerable on the open road. Motorcyclists tend to be very cautious drivers. Pity about those around them. There are however some unique types of accidents that can afflict even the most careful and experienced of motorcycle riders.
