    Personal Injury Claim Statement


    Personal Injury Claim Statement

    When making a claim for compensation a personal injury claim statement can make all the difference. A good or bad personal injury claim statement may mean the difference between winning the case and being awarded compensation and losing the case.

    If you are making a claim for compensation or deciding whether or not to make a claim you should find out what you will need to do for the personal injury claim statement.

    3. Allow Accident Advice Helpline to search for a suitably qualified, legal professional who specialises in the type of claim you wish to make.

    4. Provide the legal professional with all of the information they need in order to give them the best chance of winning the case and being awarded compensation on your behalf.

    What type of information will you have to provide?

    A personal injury claim statement will have to be provided which will explain the events which led to your injuries. This will set out exactly what happened during the accident and should allow the courts to determine who was at fault for your injuries.

    If there were any witnesses to the accident then a personal injury claim statement will need to obtained from each one of them. The witness statements will be used to make sure what you have said in your statement is completely accurate.

    Why is a personal injury claim statement so important?

    Your personal injury claim statement is important because you are the person who knows best what happened. It is also your claim and so the courts will need to know, in your opinion, what happened when deciding whether you should receive compensation or not.

    The personal injury statement of any witnesses will be extremely important if the person/company/organisation that was at fault for your accident does not accept that they were responsible. If they decide to argue then the issue will become a question of who the court believes. This is difficult to determine if it is a case of your word against theirs.  So, if you have witnesses who saw what happened, their personal injury statement could mean that the courts will be more likely to accept that the other party was responsible. This means you are more likely to be awarded the necessary compensation.
