GeneralTop Tips for Making a Personal Injury Claim

Whether you’ve suffered an unfortunate injury due to an accident at work, sustained injuries in a road traffic accident or been involved in a public or medical incident that’s caused you harm, you could be entitled to a compensation payout. However, making a personal injury claim can be nerve-wracking and stressful, especially if you’re still suffering the effects of a serious injury – what can you do to make the process easier and increase your chances of success?

Why do you need to make sure you’re armed with all of the facts beforehand?

In order to make a successful personal injury claim, it’s essential that you gather as much evidence as you can that’s related to the incident. Ensure that you retain any paperwork given to you by the hospital, police or emergency services and double-check that your GP and medical records have been updated. Thoroughly record all of the details and circumstances surrounding your injury, including the date and time that it occurred and the names and contact details of any witnesses. Being thoroughly prepared with substantial evidence will significantly increase your chances of taking a win. You will need to hire a specialist lawyer or solicitor to deal with the case, but won’t usually have to pay unless your claim is accepted – this means that you could make a ‘no win no fee’ claim to gain compensation.

What are the different types of injury lawyers?

Depending on the nature of your case and the severity of any injuries sustained, you will be required to hire a specialist injury lawyer for the best chance of success. The most common types of injury lawyers in the UK include road accident lawyers, accident at work lawyers, occupational disease lawyers and clinical negligence lawyers. If you’ve suffered a personal injury, you could be liable for a compensation payout while your hospital or local NHS trust could also recover the costs of any treatment.

How do you know if you’re able to make a claim?

If you’ve collected sufficient evidence of the circumstances and factors surrounding your injury (and evidence of the injury itself as verified by a medical professional), you should be more than eligible to make a claim. However, it’s worth noting that the accident or injury must usually have occurred within three years for your claim to be accepted; if you have strong evidence of an accident, incident or episode of clinical negligence that happened less than three years before making a claim, you could have a fair chance of success.
