If blame for the accident cannot be established then a personal injury claim cannot go ahead. The problem here is that blame can be a matter of opinion and so the injured person will have to provide evidence that the accident was not their own fault. They will then have to show that it was someone else’s fault. This is achieved by presenting evidence and this could be:
- A witness statement from the injured person
- Witness statements from others who saw the accident
- CCTV footage

There cannot be a personal injury claim if there is no injury. Generally, the injury should have been serious enough for the person to have sought medical attention – either with their own doctor or at a hospital Accident and Emergency Department. There will be medical records and possible results such as x-rays to confirm how serious the injury is. The person making the claim will also be required to attend one medical assessment appointment with a medical expert so that a medical report can be prepared on their injuries. This is a formal document and will be presented in court if needed. However, very few cases get this far – most are settled out of court.

Not all compensation pay outs are the same! It is often the skill of the personal injury lawyer that influences how big the final settlement is and the lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline are expert negotiators. Above all, the final compensation amount should be fair. In general, the more serious injuries will be paid the highest levels of compensation because they cause the greatest pain and discomfort and require the most invasive treatments. However, compensation is also paid for the money that the injured person has lost because they cannot work. People earning a higher salary would have lost more money. It is also possible to claim for out of pocket expenses like parking and travel to hospital appointments.
