London, UK (PRWEB) March 24, 2010
The Injury Lawyers (http://www.theinjurylawyers.co.uk/ ), the UK's leading car accident claim and whiplash claims lawyers, is warning motorists to take care to ensure they are properly covered for any injuries sustained through driving.
The company also reaffirms the need for motorists to ensure they have full and proper cover when choosing a car insurance policy.
According to Mike Gibson, spokesman for The Injury Lawyers, "In the current economic climate, many people will look to try and save pennies where they can. While it remains quite reasonable to shop around for insurance cover to get a good discount deal, motorists should be very careful to ensure they avoid cutting out injury cover in order to cut costs.
"Car accident cover remains a very important part of an insurance policy, and can cost only a few pounds extra. The danger is when people try and save those few pounds, but then find themselves losing out to thousands in the event of an accident where they do not have adequate accident cover. When it comes to an accident compensation claim and car accident claims, having the right amount of insurance cover is essential."
Mike Gibson affirms that this is especially true in cases where injuries may appear initially minor, such as whiplash incidents. "Whiplash is among the most common injuries that a motorist can suffer, and also potentially the most debilitating. It is important for motorists to ensure their policy protects them in the event of having to make a whiplash injury claim and file for whiplash injury claims compensation."
The warning comes as the Association of British Insurers reports both a surge in insurance fraud, as well as a drop in motoring premiums.
Mike Gibson adds, "Ensuring proper legal and medical protection on an insurance policy can only cost a few pounds, but if any motorist suffers an accident that results in whiplash or similar, then injury claims for a whiplash compensation settlement could be potentially worth thousands of pounds."
