In terms of personal injury claims, a claim form is an official, written document used to formally request financial compensation for injuries sustained in accidents, that someone else was responsible for.
It is submitted to the public authority, organisation, insurance company or individual you believe is liable to pay you this compensation.
Claim forms in practice
If, for example, you were to make a claim for slip injury compensation after being injured by slipping due to wet flooring in your local corner-shop, you would send the claim form either to the owner of the store or directly to the insurance company providing their public liability insurance policy.
In a similar fashion, if you sustain an injury by falling down stairs at a council-owned library, for instance, your claim form or request for compensation would have to be submitted to the responsible council.
Or, the claim form requesting compensation for a trip injury at your place of work would have to be submitted to your employer or your company’s work injury compensation manager.
Claim forms are not only used in claims for compensation following injuries by slips, trip and falls, but also for those sustained in road traffic accidents, work injuries and occupational illnesses, and holiday and travel accidents, for example.
In other words, whenever a claim for injury compensation arises, a claim form has to be submitted to the responsible party, who expected to pay the compensation.
