How to start a claim for a personal injury

The exact process depends on the type of personal injury claim you’re making, but all claims typically include the following steps:

Decide on the claim you want to make

The first step is to decide on the type of personal injury claim you want to make. It’s best to discuss all the details of the accident with a solicitor or specialist claims company.

Provide medical evidence

Next, compile any medical evidence that relates to your injury, including the results of any medical assessments or tests. You should also ask your doctor to write a report of the medical care you received and the impact the injury has had on your health.

Gather all supporting documents

Once you have established your claim, you will need to gather all the necessary documents. This may include any photo or video evidence such as CCTV, witness statements, letters or messages between the parties involved, and any medical evidence. Basically, you want to include anything that provides proof of your personal injury.

Submit your claim

The next step is to submit your claim. Your solicitor or claims company will usually do this on your behalf.

Wait for a response

Once the claim has been submitted, the next step is to wait for a response. This can take some time, but if your claim is successful, you will usually receive an offer for compensation.
