    A very popular way to find a personal injury solicitor in Broxted is call the excellent law firm Accident Advice Helpline. They will be happy to provide a comprehensive and seamless legal service to people who have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault.

    Here are some examples of the type of information that you will be providing to your solicitor and how they will interpret it as part of your claim.

    Best solicitor in Broxted and information about the accident

    Your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will need clear and accurate information about the accident in which you were hurt. For most people this takes the form of:

    • A detailed description of what happened during the accident from your point of view. This must be truthful and accurate and is called your statement.
    • An account of what happened from other people who saw the accident – these are called witness statements. Make sure that you are able to supply witness statements by collecting names and contact details at the scene of the accident.
    • Photographs and/or sketches of the accident scene – these can be very useful as it helps the solicitor to visualise the accident scene.

    You cannot claim for an injury if your solicitor does not have any details about it! There should be some medical notes relating to your injury – these will have been made when you were treated in a hospital or ay your family doctors.

    Make sure that you make a note of when and where you were treated so that your medical notes can be traced. Most people making a personal injury claim also have to attend one appointment with a medical expert so that a medical assessment report can be prepared about their injuries. This is usually arranged with a local doctor.

    The final compensation amount will be calculated from two sources of financial information.

    1. Part 1 is the money that you are paid for the injury itself. In general terms the more serious injuries tend to get the higher levels of compensation – and this is only fair. More serious injuries cause greater pain and suffering and so the injured person deserves more money.
    2. Part 2 is for the ‘out of pocket’ expenses that you have incurred as a direct result of the injury. Out of pocket expenses are usually made up of lost wages, extra childcare bills, personal care hills or bills for help around the house. You will have to do more than just report these – you will have to provide evidence to back it up.
