All you have to do is give us the details of your accident and your solicitor will start legal proceedings on your behalf.
Your solicitor will do everything that they can to get you your money as quickly as possible, and with the minimum amount of input from you – we know that you just want to concentrate on getting better. But there are several things that you can do before you call to help make sure that your claim gets off to a good start.
- You should write down all of the details of your accident, so that you can be confident that we have all of the information that we need. We will need to know about your accident, your injury and how your injury affected your life.
- Your solicitor will also make sure that you are reimbursed for any accident-related costs, such as money spent on travel, medical treatment or vehicle repairs. Please make a note of your expenses and retain the receipts and bank statements that prove them.
- You should also take a photo of your injury, and if possible a picture of where your accident happened.
- Finally, make sure that you are fully recovered from your injury before you claim, visit your doctor for a check-up if you need to. You can only claim compensation for your injury once, if you claim too soon you may not get all of the compensation that you would have been entitled to.
