Personal accident claim lawyer


If you are thinking of consulting a personal accident claim lawyer because you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then it would be helpful if you were aware of how the process works. Here are five useful tips on consulting a personal accident claim lawyer and on compensation claims in general.

Top 5 tips on consulting a personal accident claim lawyer

  • Personal injury claims are not just made after accidents. You can claim for an injury, disease or illness which is either physical or psychological. Personal injury claims could cover a worker who becomes ill with lung cancer after working with asbestos, through to a worker suffering from a psychological illness because they have suffered harassment at work. Car accidents, slips, trips and falls and injuries from faulty goods and services are also covered.
  • You can make a claim for compensation from the person or company who was at fault. Part of the claims process is to demonstrate that they were at fault, and you will have to provide information about the accident in order to do that. This can be done by way of descriptions, records, photographs and sketches.
  • You will also have to provide details about your injury. These should include information on all of the parts of your body that were injured and any psychological symptoms that you are suffering. The length of time that it took you to get better is also relevant. Keep a diary of your progress. It is highly unlikely that your case will appear in court but it may do so. You have to be completely honest and truthful in all of the information that you provide to your personal accident claim lawyer, so that they can negotiate a fair level of compensation on your behalf.
  • It is useful if you can supply financial records to support your claim. So for example, if you have lost wages because of your injury, you could provide copies of your wage slips before and after the injury. Remember, you can only claim for expenses and losses that were actually caused by your injury.
  • There are time limits relating to consulting a personal accident claim lawyer. Usually, this is three years, although it may be longer for some industrial diseases that take a long time to develop. It is always best to start the claims process as soon as possible after the accident or incident.
