Advice about making an injury claim
If you have been in an accident, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation for your injuries.
For many people, the idea of making a claim can be confusing, but there are a number of things to keep in mind that can help make the process easier. Regardless of whether you have been hurt in an accident at work, in a public place or on the roads, if your accident occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, they should be held responsible for paying, not you.
As one of the UK’s leading personal injury law firms, Accident Advice Helpline is committed to helping those that have been injured make the most of their claim to receive the highest amount possible. With this in mind, we have compiled some tips to help you get your claim on track after having been in an accident:
Report your accident
You should always report your accident to the relevant authorities as soon as it happens, whether that’s to your employer or to the police. Accident reports are filled out, and these contain important information about what caused the accident, and who was at fault.
Keep copies of all documents
Retain copies of the accident report, along with findings from your GP, witness details, pictures of the accident scene – in short, anything that could later be used as evidence to support that you were not at fault. This documentation should be provided to your solicitor when you initiate your claim, and will help them build a strong case on your behalf.
