Personal injury claims book


When you are making a claim for compensation, it is vital that you keep as many records as you possibly can. You have up to three years to make your claim following your accident, but just how good is your detailed memory of what happened last month, let alone a couple of years ago? That’s why it’s a great idea to keep all the information in a personal injury claims book.

Personal injury claims book

By keeping records or a diary following your accident in a personal injury claims book, you can be confident you that won’t forget details that may prove to be vital in your case.

Unless you are a trained personal accident compensation lawyer, you are unlikely to know just what information may prove decisive in your case and how certain details may be important in deciding just how much compensation you are eventually awarded.

What sort of information should you keep in your personal injury claims book?

Personal injury claims are designed to provide compensation to pay for equipment or services you now need because of the injury you suffered as a result of an accident that was not your fault. Therefore, you should ensure that you keep:

  • A record of the details of the accident – where, when and what happened;
  • Contact details of any witnesses to the accident;
  • Any bills you incurred as a result such as taxi receipts for hospital appointments;
  • Calculations of any loss of earnings because of the accident; and
  • Details of any difficulties you now have in your daily life because of the injury.

Information like this kept in one place will make the task of putting your claim together much easier. Our team at Accident Advice Helpline are made up of specialists with expertise in the various types of personal injuries for which people claim, from trips and slips to car accidents and industrial diseases.
