How to make a claim after a Kingston upon Hull car accident
Your first step towards making a claim after a Kingston upon Hull car accident should be to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You will be able to find out if you have a valid claim, by talking with one of our legal advisers. You can describe your accident and injuries and then the adviser will tell you if you have a valid claim to file. If you do have one, the claims’ process can begin. We can usually deal with clients’ claims over the phone, although you may be asked to have a further medical examination.
While you are on the phone, find out how long you have to file your specific claim. Unless you can prove that there had been exceptional circumstances which had prevented you from filing it within the limitation period you would forfeit the right to make that claim if the deadline has passed. Normally, for accidents that occur within the UK, you have three years from their date to make a claim for injuries. However there are some accidents and their injuries which must be claimed for within much less time.
Documents needed to make a claim
You will, most certainly, need your medical records if you pursue a claim for personal injury compensation. These are used for two purposes. Firstly they prove when you had medical treatment. If you didn’t have it very shortly after your accident, this might negatively affect your claim. Secondly these records are used to calculate how much compensation you should receive for your injuries.
If the police were present at the accident scene, you will also need a copy of their accident report.
Your payslips are also necessary if you claim for lost earnings.
