    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors for successful injury claims

    Being the victim of an accident can be a traumatic or frustrating experience, and seeking solicitors for successful injury claims for the compensation you are entitled to is the best course of action. The process can be intimidating, though, and some people want to get some preliminary injury advice before they speak to a solicitor. That’s why we’ve collected together some important tips for people who have had an accident that wasn’t their fault and are thinking about claiming compensation for their injuries.

    Write things down on paper

    This is useful advice that applies to every facet of your claim: your version of events during the accident itself, what injuries you have suffered, how your injuries have affected your day to day life, or anything else relevant to the accident or to your injuries.

    One of the first steps when talking to solicitors for successful injury claims is to go through how the accident happened and what injuries it led to. This whole process will be faster and more convenient to you if you have a clear idea of what happened beforehand. Some particular details might be very important, such as what lane you were driving in if your accident involved a car collision, or which colleagues were present at the accident if it occurred at work.

    Get a medical opinion on your injuries

    When determining how much compensation you are entitled to, the type and extent of your injuries will be one of the most important things taken into consideration by your solicitors for successful injury claims, in most cases. For that reason, it’s important to get an accurate note of this as early as possible.

    A short visit to your GP or local doctor will allow your solicitors to give you a much more accurate initial idea of how much compensation you can expect to recover if your claim is successful. Taking the initiative yourself will reduce delays later in the case, and will allow your lawyers to identify any specific issues very early on.

    Tell your employer about your accident

    This goes without saying if your accident actually happened at work, but there are good reasons to do this even if that wasn’t the case. If your ability to do your job is reduced by your injuries, this will be taken into account in deciding how much compensation you will recover.

    Getting the opinion of your employer might, then, be important at a later stage, so it’s a good idea to speak to them as soon as possible about whether you will need to take leave or have your work duties adjusted.

    Getting professional guidance from our solicitors for successful injury claims

    All of the above steps will be helpful to you right from the start, but eventually you will need to contact an injury advice solicitor get their opinion on your case.
