Providing an injury claims personal service – our five top tips
When people need to make injury claims personal advice is essential. At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that each case is unique and we provide you with a tailored, hassle-free service.
Here are our five top tips for a successful injury claim.
1. Read more information on this website about injury claims
Accident Advice Helpline helps with a vast range of injury claims. Our website contains lots of information on various types of accidents at work including repetitive strain injuries and construction injuries.
We also specialise in claiming compensation if you’ve suffered a slip, trip or fall. If this happened in a public place, it’s likely that you can claim through public liability insurance.
If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident and it wasn’t your fault, we can also help you claim compensation.
2. Make sure you collect all the necessary information
No matter what the injury claims personal information is essential. It’s important that you collect as much as possible:
- We’ll need to know exactly what happened. Write it all down. This will have to include the time and date of the incident as it has to have happened in the last three years.
- Did anyone see the accident? Were there any witnesses? Ask them if they’d be willing to say what happened to show that it wasn’t your fault. Most injury claims don’t require a personal court appearance, so they won’t need to stand up in court. A written statement will be fine.
- very serious at the time. A doctor’s report helps to provide a strong case.
- Perhaps you’ve had to visit an osteopath or buy medicine as a result of your injury. Keep hold of any receipts as we’ll be able to add these to your claim.
3. Don’t suffer in silence
You may feel bad or awkward about claiming for compensation. Perhaps the accident happened at work and you’re wary about damaging working relationships. Don’t worry, most companies and organisations have insurance to cover them against such scenarios. It won’t be that you’re taking money directly off your boss or friend. If you’ve been injured and you’re not to blame, you’re fully entitled to compensation.
4. Use Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test
