But what does the claims process entail? Here are a few of the steps you will need to take to make a claim.

    Gather your Evidence

    The first thing to do is to gather any evidence you have about your claim. This includes full details of the accident, including the date, place and time it occurred, and what happened. As many details as you can provide will be helpful for your injury lawyer in Houghton Le Spring. You should also provide photographs of your injury or the scene to help your claim along, and any witness statements you may have to. If the police have been involved then this can help, otherwise asking people who saw the accident to act as witnesses will be useful.

    Get a medical assessment

    Even if you have already visited a doctor, go back to your GP and ask them to write out a medical assessment of your injury, including what exactly you have suffered with and how bad it was when you first visited them. You will need to provide this information to prove that you have legitimately suffered an injury from your accident. Accident Advice Helpline may ask you to go to another medical assessment, and if so then you should go along.

    Speak to your injury claim lawyer in Houghton Le Spring

    Your personal injury lawyer is the person who is going to fight your case for you so make sure that you are available to talk to them and ask any questions they may have. As the process goes on you may be asked to clarify certain things or provide more proof of your accident and you should be willing to do this.

    Speak to the other party

    You should inform the other party in your accident that you are making an injury claim and make an official complaint if this is possible. This will help to back up your claim as well as let the other party know that action is being taken against them. Some companies may not want to go down the legal avenue to process your claim and may offer you compensation up front.
