If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else, you may be considering your options when it comes to making a claim for personal injury compensation. One of the first things you should do once you are on the road to recovery after your accident is to get in touch with a personal injury solicitor, as you will need their services and expertise to pursue a claim for compensation. Personal injury specialists can help with all aspects of making a claim for compensation, from sending an injury claim demand letter to gathering evidence in support of your claim.
Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience helping members of the public to claim compensation, so you know you can trust us – we have even been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.
How to send an injury claim demand letter
The injury claim demand letter is the letter sent to the other party responsible for your accident. So if a dangerous driver has left you suffering from whiplash or a head injury, this letter will be sent to them (and their solicitor) detailing your injuries and the fact that you are seeking to claim compensation. There’s no need to lose sleep over writing a letter yourself though, as this is where your personal injury lawyer will be supporting you.
Accident Advice Helpline can process the majority of claims over the phone, so it is unlikely you will need to go to court. We will handle all paperwork and evidence relating to your claim, which includes liaising with medical professionals for reports relating to your treatment. We’ll be able to tell you if you have a viable claim or not when you call us for advice after your accident, and there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so it’s best to contact us as soon as possible.
