The Devil is in the Detail When Making a Compensation Claim

For more than a decade Accident Advice Helpline has provided people with professional, expert legal advice on how to make a claim after having suffered a personal injury. Every month the legal advisors on the Chorley personal injury claims team help to filter their share of around 25,000 enquiries from people hoping to receive compensation. There are more than 200 legal experts working for the UK’s largest network of personal injury solicitors.

What records should you keep to help your claim?

Meticulous record keeping can make or break a claim. From the outset you should make a note of the names and addresses of all the people who were involved in your accident or witnessed how you sustained your personal injury. Some accidents can be so serious that the claimant is not able to do this in person, but somebody else should collect this data on their behalf.

Records of all doctor’s appointments and possible hospital visits should also be kept, alongside any data on diagnosis, details of all symptoms and medication or treatments prescribed. Such details can be presented in diary form or in a journal or scrapbook. All important events, new symptoms and anything else pertaining to the personal injury should be recorded here.

Such detailed information will make it far easier for the Chorley personal injury claims team of legal experts to determine who is best suited to deal as a personal advisor to the claimant.

If it is possible to take photographic evidence – with a mobile phone for example – at the time of the accident, then this will help enormously when the case comes to court or when an early settlement can be reached out of court.

Receipts and invoices relating to doctor’s appointments, trips to the hospital or to specialist treatment centres, bank statements, receipts for food and/or drinks bought while undergoing medical treatment at hospital all need to be kept in a safe place such as a folder or file, as detailed records will help Accident Advice Helpline’s advisors to determine how great the total costs are in a claimant’s case.
