Once your case has been decided and you are awarded compensation for your injuries, the actual damages must be paid to you. However, depending on a number of different factors, the party who actual pays the damages can vary. In circumstances where the claim is one that can be backed with insurance, such as a car accident or premises liability, the insurance company will usually make the payments. On the other hand, if the claim is one which insurance normally does not cover, the person who caused your injury will likely be the one paying your damages.
