Many people who have been involved in an accident that was not their fault are told that they should make a claim for personal injury. The problem is that most of us don’t know what this is or how to go about it. Some people are worried that they will have to complete long and complicated personal injury claim paperwork, spend a lot of money on legal fees and end up with countless court appearances.
5 important facts about filling in personal injury claim paperwork or making a claim
Fact 1: The best way to start is by contacting a claims management company like Accident Advice Helpline. They will not immediately ask you to fill out personal injury claim paperwork. Instead, a friendly professional advisor will guide you through a unique 30 second test to work out whether your personal injury accident claim is likely to be successful. You can call Accident Advice Helpline any time of the day or night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The advice is honest and without obligation.
Fact 2: The advisers will put you in touch with one of the national network of legal partners who will guide you through the process of making your personal injury accident claim. They will need some information on how the accident happened and the types of injuries that you have. Injuries can be personal and psychological and you will have the chance to report all of them on the personal injury claim paperwork. You will also be able to give details about money that you have lost because you have not been able to work and expenses that you have had to pay because of the injury e.g. travel to medical appointments and childcare.
Fact 3: You will not be faced with huge legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful, because Accident Advice Helpline legal partners work on a no win no fee basis.
Fact 4: Most claims can be handled over the telephone and very few cases actually get to court. You may need to attend one appointment locally with a doctor for a medical assessment. You may find it useful to have a record of any treatment and hospital visits that you have made so that you can tell the doctor during the assessment.
Fact 5: Accident Advice Helpline cannot guarantee the exact amount of compensation that you will get for your injury claim. It will be based on the information that you provide on your personal injury claim form and so every case is unique. However, you can be confident that with over 15 years’ experience and with the backing of consumer champion Esther Rantzen, your best interests will be served.
