If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident which occurred in the West Ham area, then your first priority will be receiving medical attention, that is if you have been injured. Once you have been reviewed by your doctor or another medical professional, you may wish to consider making a claim for compensation, by contacting an injury lawyer specialist.
You can claim for personal injury compensation, if you are eligible, within three years of the accident. Personal injury claims can be made if you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, it happened within the past three years and resulted in injuries requiring medical attention (however minor you consider the injury to be).
To confirm your eligibility, you can use an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. This will also provide you with an approximate compensation amount, which may be hundreds or even thousands of pounds.

Satrting a claim
Claims cases vary greatly and your injury lawyer specialist may require different things depending on the kind of case and there is no universal set of guidelines to help you make your claim. Instead, you will be advised by Accident Advice Helpline dependent on your personal circumstance. As an example, the following information would be useful following a road traffic accident:
- Details of the other driver including vehicle registration, name, contact information and insurance details
- Contact information of any witnesses to your accident – perhaps a nearby pedestrian or another driver
- Photographs of your car following the accident, and any other conditions of relevance
In some cases, you may be too badly injured to gather this information. If possible, you should see if a trusted person can collate these details on your behalf, but don’t worry if this is not possible – Accident Advice Helpline will still be able to help.
