No-one wants to have an accident, but unfortunately it is something that occurs to all of us at some point unless we are extremely lucky. When we do, we may feel the need to pursue an injury claim in Keresley, if we live in the Coventry area of the West Midlands of course.
Starting a claim can be quite a task, as one of the first things you have to do is decide who to place your claim with. Before you begin with your claim, you should gather all the relevant information that you need including dates, details, and names and contact numbers of any witnesses. It also pays to learn a bit about the process before you begin.

Facts and guarantees
There is no such thing as a guaranteed payout in personal injury claims. Any figure you may be quoted can only ever be an estimate. Just because your neighbour received a four-figure sum for a particular injury, that does not necessarily mean that you will get the same. Many solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis. Make sure that you discuss this with your accident injury claim in Keresley solicitor in advance. Many claims can be completed via the telephone and some may need further medical appointments to complete the case. These will all be chargeable to someone eventually.
Your part of the agreement
What you need to do is show that the accident happened within three years of the date of claim, that it was someone else’s fault and that you needed medical attention as a result. You do not have to provide witnesses, but it will not be much of a case without one.
Accident report books are very useful if the accident occurred at work, as this is classed as evidence. If you have any photographs of your injury, these will also be useful to your accident injury claim in Keresley specialist in processing your claim.
If you require any further information about personal injury claims, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500. We have been offering support for over 15 years, so will be able to assist you every step of the way.
