What is your injury? Perhaps you have more than one. Whatever the case, if you’ve been injured in an accident, and it was someone else’s fault, then you can claim compensation.

How you can help: gathering evidence
One vital part of any compensation case is evidence, and it is very helpful to your claim if you can gather as much of it as possible. Why not start a file and put these items into it?
- Records of medical treatment
- Receipts for expenses
- Contact details for parties involved
- Contact details for witnesses to the accident
The type and amount of material will vary according to the type of accident you have. If in doubt, include it – solicitors in Lydney can sort out what is relevant and what isn’t!
What you will be paid
You will receive a payout that consists of money for the injury and distress and a payment for the expenses that you have incurred.
The time it takes to secure your payment is extremely difficult to determine. Every case is different, so the time taken varies from claim to claim. This may be frustrating, but allow yourself to relax as much as possible and let your lawyer take the strain. Concentrate on recovering from your injuries and rebuilding your life after your accident.
Other things to be aware of
You will be pleased to know that your claim will most probably be settled by phone, which means you will not need to go to court. Most claims are dealt with in this way.
It is likely, however, that you will need to attend one additional medical assessment. This is vital to ensure your claim proceeds properly.
Finally, make sure you call us as soon as possible. You must put in a claim within three years of your accident, unless it is an industrial disease or you were a minor when the accident happened.
