No two accidents or damages are identical, so it's natural to be unsure about starting a claim.
Simply, it’s likely you can claim if:
• The accident has happened in the last 3 years
• You got injured by that accident only
• Someone else can be blamed for your accident
The best and fastest way to find out about making a claim is to talk to a legal expert on . To make it easy for you, we’ve enlisted some instances below of the types of accidents injury lowers have supported people within the past.
• Road accidents – including uninsured drivers
• Medical negligence – like misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, dental negligence, or incorrect treatment
• Accidents during work in factories, offices, or on construction sites
• Slips and falls or gets injured in public places such as shops, and supermarkets

certain cases can be extremely difficult for us to be able to tell you straight away the amount of compensation one can receive. One can also claim for ‘special’ damages to cover other financial losses such as loss of earnings, the expenses of ongoing rehabilitation and medical care, prescription costs, and so on. You need to keep all necessary evidence like expense slips and your salary statements for loss of income. Almost all cases have a No Win No fee clause, which means you will need to pay your lawyer as a percentage of the money you get that doesn't exceed 25% of your compensation.
To simplify, we have defined the claim process in 3 simple steps below. During your claim, your lawyer handles all paperwork and take all your headache away. The claim process is governed by the rules of the personal damage Pre-Action Protocol.
Your lawyer will send a Letter of Claim to the opposite party mentioning details and circumstances of the accident, the damages as well as the effect on your life, finances, and your family. The opposite party has to answer in 21 days while either admitting or denying answerability for your injuries. They can even claim partial responsibility for your injuries.
In some cases, the opposite party will take the blame for your accident and hence you can begin with the process of negotiating. Still, it’s very common for the opposite party to deny liability straightaway. In this case, your personal injury lawyer will collect evidence to prove the fault of the opposite party.
If the opposite party denies the blame fully or partially, your case might need to go to court. Your lawyer will then pass all the details and evidence to the court. The court will inform the opposite side about your intention to start formal proceedings. Usually out of court settlements are made in most cases. Else, the court will judge the other party's blame and decide your amount of compensation.
You can also file a claim on behalf of your loved ones or someone else. Some injured might be under the age of 18, or because of the injuries, they are physically unable to claim.
A legal expert can advise you through the process of claiming on somebody’s behalf. But for this, they would be needing consent from the concerned person.
You can start a claim within three years of your accident. Still, there are exceptions to this three-year ‘limitation period’.If you’re making a claim on behalf of a child, then the three years begin when the child reaches the age of 18 years. Also, if the injured person is mentally not sound, then the three years begin when he regains his/her mental capacity.
You must take care of collecting all possible evidence like
• Any photos or CCTV footage of the accident and your injuries
• A police incident report
• Entry in an accident logbook
• Details of witnesses
Your lawyer should have your doctor's contact details and access to all relevant medical records. Your lawyer will then use all details to assess the right compensation amount.
