We are pleased to announce that we are going to be seeking coverage for our 2018 event in The Wall Street Journal. As one of the largest news publications in the world, and in particular North America, we are hoping that this will give us an unprecedented level of coverage for any forth-coming event.
We are currently looking to engage in advertising and sponsorship opportunities in the daily and weekend editions, which we hope will give us an even further reach into the accident claims injury – as well as letting us increase exposure of our own members who are looking to gain new clients across the United States.
The advertising options we are looking at won’t be live until early 2018 so we would encourage any of our members who don’t currently subscribe to The Wall Street Journal to do so very soon (we are sure that most of you do already though!). We’ve found a Facebook page that offers Wall Street Journal Subscriptions Discounts and specials where if required you can get a discount code or subscription deal.
Please keep your eyes on the website for upcoming information on our 2018 event and what you can expect to receive should you wish to attend. As before with our 2016 event, we hope to have a fully-packed 2 day agenda, including lunch and amazing speakers from all corners and regions in the United States.
Meanwhile, if you need a blast from the past, most of you should be old enough to remember this old Wall Street Journal ad that ran on national TV. Watch is below, amazing how the world has changed around us so quickly.
We are currently planning for our 2018 get-together. Unfortunately we were unable to secure enough interest in a July 2017 event but plan to come back bigger and better next year. If you are interested or wish to attend then please express your interest as soon as you can via our contact pages.
As previously mentioned on the blog we are open to allowing sponsorship opportunities for the Busan HL4 website. You can read more about that here should you run an accident claims company, or work as a personal injury lawyer or solicitor anywhere globally. We welcome all applications.
Our first website sponsor for 2016 is a UK-based accident claims website called The Accident Claims Web run and managed by a gentleman called Hugh Rollinson.
As part of the sponsorship agreement we permit any business, individual, charity, or company to have a dedicated space on our blog and website which details an overview of them including an introduction to the services that they offer.
What follows is third party content supplied by Hugh regarding The Accident Claims Web. If you would also like an opportunity like this then please contact us.
Introduction to the Company
We are a website that was established in 2015 as part of the Accident Claimline, a fully regulated and reputable accident claims management company based in the UK.
We specialise in helping people who live and work all around the UK, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland in making personal injury claims for compensation.
How the Accident Advice Helpline Works
Our premise is very simple. If you believe that you have been hurt due to an accident that was not your fault, and believe you could be due compensation, then you call our helpline and one of our advisors will take you through a quick question and answer session over the telephone to validate your claim. If we believe you are eligible to make an accident claim, then we will appoint you with a personal injury solicitor as local to you as we possibly can.
Your personal injury solicitor will then represent you to the best of their ability from start to finish, and in most cases you won’t even need to attend court. Most claims are settled outside of court within a few months.
Your solicitor will tell you each and every step of the way exactly what is happening and how your accident claim compensation case is progressing. You can read more about the claim types we deal with below.
Accidents at Work
Work accident claims are amongst the most common types that we deal with. Other than the home, your workplace is the place that you spend the most time, and so it stands to reason that accidents can happen on premises or whilst working.
What we find with work accident claims is that many people and employees can be quite reticent about claiming for compensation or bringing legal action against their employer or boss. This is completely understandable as most people want to protect their job, livelihood, and income.
However, you need to be aware that the UK legislation and law is there to protect you against accidents at work. Anyone who decides to make an accident claim case against their employer isn’t actually going to be seeking compensation from the company.
How it works is that all businesses and companies in the UK will be protected by insurance policies which mean that any compensation will be paid for by an insurance company. In fact, it’s far more common than you would think and we handle hundreds of cases of this type each year.
We always tell any callers that they should not have to worry about bringing a claim because they won’t be taking money from the pocket of their boss. So if you have been hurt or injured at work and would like to explore your options about making a personal injury claim then please call us today.
Not only that though. Many employees might be concerned that their employer could discriminate against them if they have decided to pursue legal action over accident claims. There is additional UK law and legislation that also protects against workplace discrimination by employers against employees in cases such as this so that’s another aspect that should put your mind at rest should you be at all concerned in using our professional and expert services.
Car Accident Claims and Crashes
Unfortunately another common type of enquiry that our specialist team deal with concern car crashes and collusions. In many cases you will swap insurance details and let your insurance company deal with any fall-out after an accident – visit our website for information on car crash claims.
Be Wary of Insurance Company Payouts
But you might not realise that the insurance companies are experts at paying out the least possible when it comes to compensation. With our help we can fight for your rights to get as much personal injury compensation as possible after a car accident – even if you believe it might have been your fault.
Our personal injury solicitors will seek the following types of damages:
Compensation for pain and suffering
Compensation for loss of wages and time off work
Compensation for any psychological damages
Repairs or replacement vehicles costs
Any other associated costs
Legal costs and reimbursements
Private medical care and treatment where needed
Brain Injuries and Serious Head Injuries
We are also specialists in very serious injuries, such as brain injury claims, and other serious types such as back, head, and spinal cases. When it comes to accident and injury claims such as these it’s imperative that you seek the advice of a firm of solicitors who specialise in cases such as this.
For example, if you had hurt your knee and needed an operation, you would not call a chiropodist. Instead you want the services of a specially trained knee surgeon. Making decisions when it comes to legal representation should really be no different, and we have a large roster or specialist brain injury lawyers and head injury specialist solicitors who are ready and waiting to represent you and your family.
We know how stressful and worrying it can be for the families of head injuries, in particular those affected with brain injuries, and have a sympathetic and understanding approach to cases such as these where our team are specially trained to ask the right questions and get the right personal injury solicitors firm to work on your case.
Help Also for Pedestrian and Cyclists
It’s not just drivers that we can offer legal support too though. We are also massive advocates of making sure that pedestrians and cyclists also get the help that they need and deserve after an injury.
We have sections on our website dedicated to cycling accident claims and those involving road traffic accidents involving pedestrians. That could include a slip, trip, or fall, or even being knocked over by a car. Whatever your circumstances make sure you call us to discuss your own individual case so we can properly advise you.
We are so happy to be involved with this sponsorship opportunity and one of our representatives might end up meeting some of you at the 2016 forum and conference. If you would like to write to or call us then our contact information is below – and as said we are available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year – even on public holidays such as Christmas time.

One of the main topics of conversation at the 2016 forum will be how accident claims are handled by insurance companies. An insurance company will typically require information regarding the accident claim in order to assess and pay for the claim.
In most cases, accident claims information is delivered by the reporting plaintiff or the policyholder. Such information is helpful for investigation and evaluation of a loss – but in some cases this information can be fraudulent hence why we believe it should be discussed at the next forum in order to protect our own industry.
The two primary types of accident claim, property damage and personal injury, require an adjustment insurer to probe into the loss of detail and develop a resolution. But in some cases this won’t be done thoroughly – we see this a lot with car accident compensation when an auto accident policyholder can file a collision claim sometimes without enough mitigating information or evidence.
Recent Accident Claims News
There has been a lot of recent news about this which you can view below:
What we believe is that where the policyholder describes how the injury occurred and who was involved, the insurance company needs to gather a lot more information such as the year, make, and model of the vehicle along with the vehicle identification number.
The insurance company will also ask if the police were called to the scene, a police report was taken, and whether any witnesses were present. If the vehicle can be driven, the insurance company can provide business area repair take the vehicle for a quote. If the vehicle is towed insurance company will send an adjustment to the workshop to determine if the vehicle can be repaired.
After completing the assessment, the insurance company pays the insured for the amount of the damages is subject to a deductible.
As the law currently stands there are many cases where this information isn’t properly investigated, and there have been a lot of fraudulent accident claims made in 2015 and that’s set to rise in the 2016 calendar year we believe.
An applicant may submit an application for injury, also called a claim for pain and suffering, with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In addition to many of the details asked during a collision claims the insurance company will also ask for some accident claim information in relation to how the injury occurred, and details of the damage.
Other requests for accident claim information is the applicant’s age, which the applicant is medically treated, and whether the plaintiff’s injury occurred in the past. An adjustment has been assigned to handle the investigation and assessment of the claim for pain and suffering.
Information on Fire Based Accident Claims
When a fire breaks out, files policyholder claims for damage to homes or commercial buildings and personal content. The insurance company will ask the insured for accident claim information in relation to how the fire started, if possible, and which parts of the structure and contents were damaged. If greater damage occurs to a personal residence, the insurance company will work with the policyholder to find alternative accommodation in the interim.
As for a commercial loss, the business area will assist the insurance company to prepare a complaint under business interruption coverage. Once the initial information is reported, an adjustment is sent to the loss was to prepare a calculation of damages for the structure and content.
Other accident claim information requested from the policyholder includes finding a contractor to repair the structure and establish a timetable for repairs. When the calculations are complete, the insurance company to pay the debts per the purchased insurance, by either replacement cost or actual cash value, subject to a deductible.
What About Water Damage?
When water damage occurs, the policyholder files claim for damages to the home and for damages to personal content. The insurance company will ask the insured for accident claim information associated with the water damage occurred. If, for example, performs a plumber repairing some pipes burst causing a flood insurance company will request information in relation to the plumber background and the type of work performed.
Additionally, an adjustment will be sent to inspect the damage and the draft estimates of repairs. The insurance company will pay debt per the purchased insurance, by either replacement cost or actual cash value, subject to a deductible.
Slips, Trips and Falls Personal Injury Cases
When someone slips and falls on the premises of a policyholder’s property causes injury, the plaintiff files a claim with the policyholder’s insurance company for a claim for pain and suffering. The insurance company will interview applicants to find out the details accident claim even where the incident occurred, how the accident occurred, and if there were any conditions released to the public on notice of the condition that caused the accident.
If an incident report was made, the report provides important accident claim. The insurance company may retain an investigator to inspect the premises of any dangerous conditions and make recommendations for risk management purposes.

Despite statutory operating safeguards work accidents happen again and again. Then it’s good to know what obligations have employers and employees. You can also read more here about what accident claims law involves.
When it comes to an accident at work or work accident claimd, the provisions of the Social Code (SGB) Laying seventh part fixed.

Work Accident Claims Will Be Insured
An accident is an insured accident, which occurred on a direct path to the workplace or on direct route from the workplace home.
Not to be confused with an accident at work is the occupational disease in § 9 SGB VII. This arises from the nature of the accident at work, which the law defines as “time-limited externally acting on the body events”.
Accidents at work must not be self-inflicted by the employee, the SGB is purely from the activity performed, by which the individual damage.
When there is an accident at work?
Uses of workers despite the mandatory safety training by the employer in accordance with § 15 Labour Protection Act (ArbSchG) no protective clothing and thereby incurs a loss in the above-mentioned type, it is not by an accident at work. The same applies to private activities during the actual working time.
Example: When it is not by an accident at work
During the lunch break a person goes once around the office building and is injured by a falling tree branch.
A person is drinking alcohol during their working hours and injured.
If an accident at work in front clearly, so are the legal requirements are met, the insurance carrier (accident insurance) must grant the employee he is entitled to benefits. These may be costs for treatment or rehabilitation or pension payments.
What workers need to do in a work accident?
Shortly after the work accident occurred, workers should be examined and treated by a passage physician. As a rule, these are trauma or orthopedic surgeons. As a rule, companies keep a list with corresponding through physicians.
Experts of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) advise every little or seemingly insignificant accident at work, for example, to report the famous cut finger, the employer. Background: caused by the initial injury a worse secondary damage and the employee can no longer characterized work properly or even made void under certain circumstances the insurance coverage.
What employers need to do in a work accident?
If there is an accident at work, the employer must in accordance with § 193 SGB VII show the accident insurance carrier this incident immediately. This applies when the insured employee is so injured that he is unable to work more than three days. For the message of the employer three days. In serious cases, ie when serious injury or even death, should be reported immediately.
The experts of the DGUV advised to enter every little accident in the accident book. In association book is noted that when a worker health damage occurred (detection function for the insurer). The following information should be provided:
Personal injury and accident claims law refers to the legal structure that will handle cases in which a person physically or psychologically injured by the actions or negligence of another person or system has been. These cases should normally be under civil, rather than criminal jurisdiction. Personal injury law legislation can be very complete but may differ regionally.
Mostly handled personal injury law violations that have been brought about by negligence, either by an individual or an organization. These cases tend to explain that the injury would not have occurred if the person responsible had been duly carefully. The exception to this type of process is defamation, which is often treated as a personal injury legal matter, although many defamatory statements are intentionally released.
Car Accident Claims
Automobile Injury accidents are usually treated by personal injury law. In some regions, accidents are considered non-fault. Situations and require every person involved to pay his or her own medical fees. In the western regions, however if a person can not be found responsible for causing an accident, he or she may be responsible for the medical fees and even the psychological treatment of all victims involved.
Self-injury accident claims can include car collisions collisions with other vehicles such as bicycles or motorcycles and accidents that involve pedestrians and support. In personal injury law normally only the medical and psychological costs are at stake; Damage other support is treated on property law.
Medical malpractice is a major area of personal injury law. Patients who believe they were misdiagnosed, mistreated or injured as a result of poor technique or negligence can sue doctors for malpractice under personal injury law legislation sometimes.
Work Accident Claims
To check misconduct, the prosecutor must show that the doctor acted inappropriately, that the patient would not have been infringed without the wrong activities of a doctor and that there is damage free as reconstructive surgery or additional treatment that can be awarded.
Slip and fall accidents may fall under the jurisdiction of the personal injury law. These occur when a person initiates or sustains an injury to property of another person. To check fault, the prosecution must in this case show that the accident by the negligence of the owner was prompted to provide safe lighting to provide accurate stairwells or other security measures available which would have prevented the accident from occurring.
Defamation is the destruction or the loss of reputation, which is caused by the issuance of false statements. This is a tricky area of the law, since it may be difficult to prove that damage has been done by sensible defamation. Legislation on these cases vary widely in different regions and can be quite difficult to successfully check.
