    Making a personal claim

    Making a personal claim for injury compensation is important, because getting what you deserve and need to recover from an accident that was not your fault is essential. So have you been injured in an accident that was not your fault? Many people are every year, and some are not aware of their right to claim compensation through a personal claim. Put simply, if your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence you have a legal right to make a claim for compensation. Many people have been awarded worthwhile compensation for such injuries. Take our 30 second test to see if you can make a personal claim.

    Proving negligence for a personal claim

    The basic premise of making a personal claim claiming for injury compensation is that you need to prove negligence on the part of another. Negligence is, quite simply, a lack of due care and attention, which the law states we all have to observe in both professional and personal situations. To be sure of proof it pays to have a solicitor on hand to handle your claim.

    Common accident claims

    The most commonly seen personal claim is for whiplash, a common injury in road accidents. This comes about when the spine is forced out of shape in an instant, causing damage to the soft tissue that lines the vertebrae. Whiplash can result in loss of movement and extreme pain, and often loss of work and earnings. Broken bones and muscle damage are also caused by accidents, and many injuries are endured in the home.

    How to make accident claims

    If you believe that you have a valid personal claim for compensation to make you should seek professional help. This makes things a lot easier and less stressful. You can find many solicitors who operate in the compensation claims field, and they may offer you a no win, no fee deal in which you do not pay in the unlikely event you are unsuccessful. It is essential that you have the best help possible in order to give you the best chance of success. Accident Advice Helpline can help you start the process of making a personal claim in order that you can get the compensation that you need and deserve in order to start rebuilding your life to the one you enjoyed prior to the accident.

    How long does the personal claim process take?

    We handle personal injury claims quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, it is not possible to say exactly how long a claim will take. This depends on the scale of injury sustained, the willingness of the other party to admit liability for the accident, and other factors that are specific to each case.
