If your claim is a valid one, you can start making the claim over the phone. You may not have to visit a lawyer’s office, although you may be asked to have another medical examination.
What documents do I need to file my claim?
You will certainly need your medical records if you pursue a personal injury compensation claim. These will serve to prove that you had medical treatment after your accident. If you didn’t receive medical attention, this could damage your claim.
Your medical records are also needed in order to work out how much compensation you might be awarded for your injuries if your claim is successful. These describe your injuries in detail.
This part of the compensation comes in to the category of general damages. These are awarded for the pain, distress and suffering you endured because of your injuries. General damages can also be awarded for loss of amenity. This means that if you can’t do anything now, that you enjoyed doing before your accident, such as a sport or hobby, you can be compensated for this loss of enjoyment.
If the police were present at the accident scene, you will also need a copy of their accident report.
