Accident Advice Helpline aims to make the claims process as transparent and as efficient as possible. Here are some of the major steps involved when making a claim for accidents at work, road traffic collisions and accidents while abroad.
Write everything down regarding claims
The first step in the claim making process is to note as many details of the accident as possible. Write down the names and addresses of any people involved in the accident, as well as any independent witnesses. Keep a record of all medical appointments, medications prescribed, as well as any symptoms you might be suffering from
Take photographs where possible for claims
The age of the smartphone is a wonder. Most people now carry around a decent quality camera in their pocket. A photograph can be an excellent source of evidence when making a claim for compensation particularly in the instances of a road traffic collision.

Settle early where possible
When a defendant has admitted liability and given an indication of how much they believe the claim to be worth, they will usually ask the claimant what level of compensation they would be prepared to accept. The majority of cases will be settled out of court for this amount. This results in the majority of claimants being able to have their claim processed by telephone, without ever having to make an appearance in court. This also means that any potential claimant will receive payment quickly and as a result the entire process will become less stressful.
For claimants who have suffered injuries through accidents that were not their fault, making personal injury claims with the right company should be a fairly straightforward process. By following the advice offered here by Accident Advice Helpline, their experts say claims will be processed faster and compensation amounts will generally be higher.
If you’ve suffered an accident within the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
