People who have suffered a personal injury in an incident that was not their fault are left trying to deal with several things at the same time, including making a personal injury insurance request. They can include:
- Pain of the injury
- Inconvenience of the injury
- Hospital/doctor visits
- Loss of earnings
- Paying for extra childcare
- Paying for help with household tasks
- Paying for personal care
This is why the majority of people have no choice but to try and make a claim for compensation. Most claims for compensation are paid out of the insurance held by the person or organisation that you are claiming from. It is called a personal injury insurance request. Before you start this process it is sensible to find out as much as you can about it. The following information will be useful for you.
Information on making a personal injury insurance request
Luckily, there are experts in this process. Law firms like Accident Advice Helpline can help you. The friendly, professional advisors have a unique 30 second test to assess if you have grounds to make a claim. All you have to do is provide some simple information about the accident and your injuries. Even if the test shows that you could claim, there is no obligation for you to go ahead if you don’t want to. Accident Advice Helpline is a very established Law Firm and is endorsed by the trusted TV consumer champion Dame Esther Rantzen. To make things more convenient for you, you can call them anytime of the day or night; 7 days a week.
Something else to bear in mind about making a personal injury insurance request is that road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls can be claimed for up to three years after they happened. Claims for industrial diseases can be made even later.
At the start of your personal injury insurance request it is not possible to guarantee the exact amount of compensation that you will receive. This is because each personal injury claim is unique. The time taken for each claim to be resolved varies because every case is so different.
