Accidental injury claim


Accidental injury claim guide

Here is a quick guide from Accident Advice Helpline taking you through the 3 easy steps to making a successful accidental injury claim.

Step 1 – Keep track of the facts

When you make an accidental injury claim, you enter into a legal process. While this sounds scary, it really doesn’t have to be. When you are in the right, you know. So if you know that you have been injured and someone else is to blame, you know that you are right to make a claim.
Your accidental injury claim process will go faster and more smoothly if you are able to help by presenting all of the facts about your accident in a clear and reliable way. Write down everything you can about your accident. Some of the things you should include are:
  • the date, time and place of your accident.
  • the people directly involved and the people who witnessed your accident. If possible, include their contact details or anything you can remember about them. This might be a description of what they look like, where they work or what they were doing at the time of your accident.
  • a description of exactly how your accident happened. For example, if it was a road accident, what vehicles and pedestrians were where, what were the weather conditions? Was visibility good? Include anything you can remember about who said what, who did what and if any police or medical services attended the scene. If the police did attend, did they give you a case reference number?  If so, write it down.
  • What happened after the accident? Did you realise you were injured straight away? What medical treatment did you seek and when? Write down any advice you were given.
  • What impact has your injury had on your life? Has it cost you money for lost wages, childcare or travel expenses?  Have you been unable to continue your life as usual?  Write everything down – you may think you will remember everything, but it will help you recover from your accident if you can keep your thoughts calm and ordered.
