When can you file a bodily injury claim?
You can file an injury claim any time in the three years following your accident. However, in our experience people don’t tend to wait that long, and attend to the matter as soon as possible.
You can claim for most non-fault accidents you could think of: home or work incidents, road accidents, slips, trips and falls, medical negligence, and many more. As long as you did not provoke the accident and injury yourself, you are eligible to receive compensation.
It is impossible to tell what the exact amount of compensation will be paid but you can get an estimate by using our 30-second test you can find on our website. If you’d like more information, Accident Advice Helpline’s advisors are available to clear your doubts. Call 0800 689 0500 and find out everything you want to know about how to file a bodily injury claim. Our advisors are happy to help, and you will not be obliged to proceed with a claim.
How long will it take for a claim to be processed?
The estimated time depends on the details of each case. However, if you talk to one of our helpline advisors they could give you an estimate according to your specific situation.
What kind of expenses are covered?
The money you receive as compensation will help to cover costs like transportation and medical bills, but also to help with your recovery, replace lost wages and soften any long-term impact that your injury might have on your life.
Let’s take medical expenses as an example. The compensation covers medical bills you’ve already paid, but also future expenses for treatment the victim might need to undergo. The future expenses are an estimation of the medical needs during the estimated time to heal, or for the life expectancy of the victim in case of permanent damage.
It’s best to save all the information connected to the accident if you can. It helps to put everything together in a file: all receipts, bills, diagnostics, contacts for witnesses, etc.
