Stage two of a bodily injury claim – proving fault
This is the stage where Accident Advice Helpline will allocate you a personal injury lawyer who is an expert in your type of claim. We will set about proving who was at fault for your accident. Sometimes this is very straightforward and this stage can be completed quickly. For other cases it is more complicated and can take some time. You can help things along at this stage by providing all the information that your personal injury lawyer requests straight away. It is very important to be both truthful and accurate about what happened in your accident. Your lawyer will tell you once liability has been admitted.
Stage three of a bodily injury compensation claim – negotiating compensation
Once the person that you will be claiming compensation from has admitted that they are to blame then the process of negotiating how much money you will get can begin. The amount will be determined by a number of factors. One of these is the location and severity of your injury. You will be asked to attend one meeting with a medical practitioner who will prepare a medical assessment report about your injuries. Your medical records from the time of the accident will also be considered.
As soon as your claim is settled you will receive prompt payment of your compensation.
