Accident Protector helps make sure you and your family are ready

If an accident sends you to the emergency room, lands you in the hospital or requires a recovery period after hospital confinement, Accident Protector pays cash directly to you. So instead of worrying about how you’re going to pay your bills, you can focus on getting better.

Help with a wide range of costs associated with injuries from an accident

Four out of 10 people are treated in emergency rooms every year. 1 The typical length of a hospital stay is five days and costs over $10,000. 2 That s more than two month s income for the average American family! 3

If you or a family member is hospitalized, do you have an emergency cash fund to help pay for non-medical expenses? Because even though you re injured you still need to pay insurance deductibles and copayments as well as monthly household bills like rent or mortgage, car payments, groceries and utilities. You might even need to pay someone to help around the house while you re recovering.

The Accident Protector policy is available for individuals or families.

This is an accident only policy and does not provide benefits for loss due to sickness.

SDS Solicitors > Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle Accident Claims

If you are a motorcyclist and have been injured following an accident with another motorist, Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can help you.

Some of the most serious road accidents in the UK involve motorcycles, and frequently result in life-threatening or even fatal injuries. The government says that motorcyclists are 38 times more likely to be killed in a road accident than car drivers or passengers.

Swift Medical Treatment and Financial Compensation

As with all road accident cases, our first priority is ensuring that you quickly receive high-quality medical treatment, and then thorough ongoing care.

The recovery process for motorcyclists can often be longer than that of car drivers, given the lack of protection a motorcyclist has in the event of a crash or a collision with another vehicle. Serious injuries cause not only extreme physical damage and suffering, but can also prevent victims from getting back to work.

Loss of earnings is another of the major considerations in road accident cases. If you have been unable to earn your living as a result of the incident, we ensure that your claim makes this very clear.

Our motorcycle accident solicitors liaise with medical experts while working on your claim, in order to make sure that the extent of your injuries is explicitly stated.

Vehicle Repair and Replacement

As motorbikes are much smaller than cars, vans and lorries, it is not uncommon for them to be badly damaged in a collision. Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can arrange for your repairs and can provide you with a like-for-like replacement in the meantime, which should enable you to carry on as normal.

Consult the Personal Injury Specialists

To make claim for your motorbike accident, call Sheldon Davidson Solicitors today on 0333 999 8800. We help the victims of road accidents obtain the compensation they deserve, and we are ready to help you.

PPI firm shut down over mis-selling – Press releases #claims #online


redress claims

PPI firm shut down over mis-selling

The winding up follows an investigation by the Insolvency Service.

The company, trading under the name “Redress Claims”, charged customers an up-front fee of between £95 and £395 plus a percentage of the fee recovered, for PPI services, mis-sold credit card claims, mis-sold mortgage claims and Unenforceable Credit Agreements (UCA).

The Insolvency Service investigated the company, following information from the Ministry of Justice and found many examples of misconduct by the company including misusing client funds, taking unauthorised payments from clients, failing to operate a proper complaints procedure to the detriment of its customers and failing to file statutory accounts and returns.

Commenting on the case, Alex Deane, an Investigation Supervisor with the Insolvency Service, said,

This company operated with flagrant disregard for the rules governing claims management services and proper financial controls. The investigation and subsequent legal action taken by the Service were long and complex and I would like to thank officials from the Ministry of Justice for their assistance in bringing the company’s activities to an end.

Those responsible for such companies should be aware that the Insolvency Service can and will take firm action against companies which operate in this manner.

Notes to Editors

Redress Financial Management Limited (“Redress”) was incorporated on 8 May 2007. The registered office is Unit 3, the Courtyard, Mid Point, Thornbury, Bradford, West Yorks, BD3 7AY. The sole director of Redress is Naman Ahmed Hussein

The petition to wind-up Redress Financial Management Limited was presented under s124A of the Insolvency Act 1986 on 7 October 2013. The company was wound-up on 19 November 2014.

Company Investigations, part of the Insolvency Service, uses powers under the Companies Act 1985 to conduct confidential fact-finding investigations into the activities of live limited companies in the UK on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation Skills (BIS). Further information about live company investigations is available .

The Insolvency Service also administers the insolvency regime, investigating all compulsory liquidations and individual insolvencies (bankruptcies) through the Official Receiver to establish why they became insolvent. In addition, the agency authorises and regulates the insolvency profession, deals with disqualification of directors in corporate failures, assesses and pays statutory entitlement to redundancy payments when an employer cannot or will not pay employees, provides banking and investment services for bankruptcy and liquidation estate funds and advises ministers and other government departments on insolvency law and practice. Further information about the work of the Insolvency Service, and how to complain about financial misconduct, is available .

How Much is My Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim Worth? #combined #life #insurance #claim #forms


motorcycle accident claims

How Much is My Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim Worth?

If you got into a motorcycle accident as a rider or a passenger, you’re probably wondering how much your potential claim might be worth. In this article, we’ll look at common factors that will affect the value of any claim you decide to make.

Taking Liability and Damages Into Account

To value a motorcycle accident case, you have to consider two things: liability and damages. Liability means who was at fault for the accident. If there is no liability, either because the person who hit you was not negligent, or because you simply can’t prove that the other driver was negligent, your case will not be worth very much. This is because it is always the plaintiff’s burden of proving that the defendant was negligent. So, if the other driver was not negligent, he or she doesn’t owe you anything. (Learn more about Proving Fault for a Vehicle Accident .)

Damages has to do with the injuries and other losses that you suffered in connection with the accident. The more significant the injury, the higher the amount of compensable injury damages.

Let’s look at a couple of examples to see how, in general, liability and damages work together to affect the value of a motorcycle accident case.

Let’s say that you were rear-ended while you are standing still at a red light waiting for the light to change, but that you didn’t get hurt, and your motorcycle didn’t incur any damage. The person who hit you was clearly negligent — rear-ending someone is a pretty clear cut case. But if you didn’t get hurt and you didn’t suffer any property damage, you did not suffer any compensable damages, and so you would have no case. You might be able to settle for a very small amount, simply for your trouble, but nothing more than a nominal sum.

Let’s now take the opposite example. Let’s say that you were involved in a motorcycle accident in which you suffered very serious damages, but that the driver of the other car involved was almost definitely not negligent. In fact, the accident may well have been your fault. In this example, any settlement might also be rather small. If the defendant wasn’t negligent, his/her insurance company is not obligated to pay you anything. Once again, you might be able to settle for a small amount, but, if you truly can’t prove that the other driver was negligent, the insurer is going to be very unlikely to settle the case for anything substantial.

Settlement Value vs. Trial Value

When you’re trying to value a motorcycle injury claim, remember that there are really two types of valuations: settlement value and trial value. A case’s settlement value is what you reasonably hope to settle the case for. The settlement value will be much lower than the trial value because you settle a case in order to avoid the risk of losing at trial. In litigation, a bird in the hand is definitely worth two in the bush.

On the other hand, the trial value is what you reasonably expect to win at trial. Let’s look at an example to see how settlement value and trial value relate.

Let’s say that, based on the liability and the damages, you believe that, if you went to trial and won, the jury would award you $200,000, but that you think that you only have a 20% chance of winning. In that situation, you might want to settle your case for slightly less than $40,000 (i.e. 20% of the expected trial value). So, in general, a case’s settlement value is a little less than the trial value multiplied by the estimated chances of winning the trial. It is a little less because you settle the case in order to avoid the risk of losing at trial.

How are Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Case Calculated?

  • damages capable of exact calculation (generally called special damages), and
  • damages not capable of exact calculation, i.e. pain and suffering

Special damages are the plaintiff’s past, present, and future lost earnings and lost earning capacity, including employment benefits, medical bills, and other financial losses. Special damages are capable of exact calculation because they are calculated to the dollar.

Pain and suffering is not capable of exact calculation. There are no guidelines for determining the value of pain and suffering. A jury cannot look at a chart to figure out how much to award. Because of this, judges generally instruct juries to use their good sense, background, and experience in determining pain and suffering.

How to Calculate Lost Earnings

Calculating past lost earnings is easy. You simply add up the earnings and employment benefits that you lost from being out of work.

Calculating Future Lost Earning Capacity

Unfortunately, calculating future lost earning capacity is much harder, and generally requires your lawyer to hire an economic expert to properly present lost future earning capacity to the jury because it involves the concept of present value.

Let’s say that, before the motorcycle accident, you earned $40,000 per year, but that, after the accident, you could only return to a part time job earning $20,000 per year. In this case, your lost earning capacity is $20,000 per year for the remainder of your work life expectancy. Work life expectancy is a statistical measure based on federal government statistics of how many more years a person is reasonably expected to work, based on that person’s age, sex, and race. That is easy to figure out, but it is much harder to calculate what $20,000 per year projected into the future is worth in the present. That is why personal injury lawyers generally hire an economist to present this information to the jury at trial.
