    What do I need to hand to start my injuries compensation claim?

    You’ll need your initial medical report, following the accident, and any other paperwork for follow up treatment, or additional medical reports.

    You should collect together all the receipts, bills and papers for expenses you consider you have run up as a direct result of your injuries.

    In some cases, you can apply for loss of income.

    If it was a car accident, you may need the police report, and if it happened at work, you should have a copy of the accident book report.

    If your claim needs specialist attention, we can arrange for a solicitor to discuss it with you. Most claimants don’t have to go to court, but if the defendant disputes your claim, or you feel the offer is too low, then you might wish to take the advice of a solicitor.
