    Personal injury information


    If you’re looking to claim for a personal injury information is key to your chances of success. But what should you go looking for and how can it affect the final outcome of your case?

    What personal injury information to look for

    When you contact Accident Advice Helpline, one of our advisors will spend time talking to you about your particular case. As a part of that we can give you pointers about what your chances of winning might be and also how much compensation you might expect to receive if you are successful in your claim.

    Now, neither piece of advice is entirely guaranteed and we will not always be able to be certain about the outcome. That will depend on the attitude that the court takes when they come to hear the case as well as the level of information we receive. Here are some of the things we could do with hearing about.

    1. Evidence

    This is perhaps the most important piece of information at all. Although some claims are relatively straightforward, many others are keenly contested by both sides and it is not always possible to be certain about what the outcome will eventually be.

    In those situations, the court will be more inclined to believe the person who has the most evidence on their side. Things such as witness statements, photographs or videos or expert testimony can all tip the balance in your direction.

    If you’re confident about your case you will want to back up your claim with as much personal injury information as possible. Gather the contact details of any witnesses at the scene and pass them onto us. There is no need to contact them directly – we’ll do that for you.

    2. Information about the injury

    Part of your claim will revolve around how badly you have been injured. If, for example, you weren’t hurt badly enough to require medical assistance then it is unlikely that we will be able to help.

    Therefore it is important to make a note of any attention you have received and any that you plan to have in the future. You should gather this all up and tell us. This will form a crucial part of your claim.

    For example, if you can get medical attention in the future which will help you back onto your feet but will cost, get at least two quotes. The money you will spend in this will form a part of your fee.

    Whenever there is doubt about a personal injury information will be a crucial turning point in the entire issue. As such, if the facts are on your side then you will want to bring them to the fore.
