How do I make a claim for medical expenses?


If you’ve been injured in an accident at work, a slip, trip or fall, or a road traffic accident, this often means that you’ll be building up medical expenses. Coupled with the fact that you may be unable to work, costs can spiral.

Fortunately you will be able to claim these costs back as part of a personal injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you through the process and get the compensation you deserve.

In this article we’ll cover some examples of personal injury medical expenses, answer the question ‘how do I make a claim for personal injury medical expenses?’ and tell you how you can seek help.

What medical expenses can I expect in a personal injury claim?

Medical expenses often form the bulk of compensation in personal injury claims. Expenses in a personal injury claim normally include all necessary and reasonable medical expenses that you’ve built up during your time injured. They typically include all injury expenses that you’ve incurred since the accident, and all expenses that you’re likely to have in the future.

Medical expenses are usually listed as ‘compensation’ in order to compensate you for your losses.

Examples of medical expenses in personal injury claims

Thankfully we have the NHS in the UK. However, there still may be outstanding costs that you are expected to cover. These include:

▪    Specialist bills (e.g. osteopathy)

▪    Costs of prescription medicines

▪    Insurance-related costs (in some cases)

▪    Pain and suffering management

As you can see, the costs can be very wide-ranging and varied, especially if you have to have continuous medical care. You must therefore be very thorough when documenting your injuries.

How can I prove my medical expenses?

Keep all your medical receipts. Thorough documentation is needed to work out your total costs of medical treatment. Receipts can include:

▪    Medical treatment receipts

▪    Pharmaceutical bills

▪    Any other documents showing the costs of the medical expenses
