Personal injury claims are best described as part of the legal process available to apply for compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault.
Claims of this type are made by people who have suffered an illness, injury or accident and the blame was due to someone else’s negligence.
This could be a work related accident, claim for clinical or medical negligence, a road traffic or car accident claim, a slip, trip or fall, or even another type of accident or injury.

What to consider before making a personal injury claim

What Is The Process For A Personal Injury Claim?
- The initial stage of an injury or accident claim is identifying that you would like to begin the legal process. If you are uncertain, you can speak in more detail to an injury compensation lawyer who can offer his/her advice
- Once there is demonstrable evidence to prove third party negligence then your solicitor can handle your case
- There will be information required from you and the more you can give the better. Sometimes it is not feasible to gain all specifics due to the nature of your accident or injury. However, where and when your accident took place; details of witnesses (if appropriate); details of medical records are important and/or useful details for solicitors when discussing your accident or injury compensation case
- Sometimes you will be required to have a medical assessment organised by your lawyer to further clarify your injuries
- Other details which can support your claim are receipts for medical assistance you have paid for; records of travel expenses and /or proof of loss of income
- Complexities can arise in some personal injury claims depending on the type of case. For example, it can be challenging to prove negligence in some industrial illnesses cases because the injury was acquired decades ago. Having an experienced lawyer who keeps you informed throughout the process will help ease any worries
