Accident Advice Helpline’s claim form is designed to be as easy as possible for you to fill in following an accident. We know, however, that going through a traumatic experience can leave you feeling shaken to the point where even the simplest things are difficult to do, so we’ve designed this page to help you fill it in.

Were you injured in the last three years?

The reason we ask this question is that most accident compensation claims have to be made within three years. If you were a child when your accident happened, you can claim at any time before your 21st birthday. Sometimes courts give special permission for claims to be made later due to unusual circumstances, such as the diagnosis of a slow-developing disease that can be traced to a specific cause.

Was the accident your fault?

This is usually quite straightforward. If, however, you think that you might be partly to blame for the accident, you can call our helpline for advice. It may still be possible to claim in this situation, but you should never say anything to anybody else about being to blame unless a solicitor advises you to do so.

Did you receive medical attention?

In order for you to be able to make a claim, a doctor or other qualified medical professional will need to be able to confirm your injuries. This doesn’t mean you need to decide that you’re going to claim before being treated. If you were treated by a hospital doctor or a paramedic and you don’t know how to trace them now, a solicitor should be able to track down the records of your treatment for you.

Where was your injury?

The amount of compensation you’re likely to be entitled to will depend on where you were injured. In most cases, it’s based on how severely your injury is likely to affect your life. A broken leg, for instance, will usually cause you more serious problems than a broken wrist. Other factors will also be taken into account, so if for instance you make your living as a typist, you would be likely to receive a higher than average amount of compensation for a broken wrist. Our telephone advisors will be happy to discuss these possibilities with you.
