Making a claim can be a really simple task if you know the claims process. If you, or someone you know, has been injured through fault of their own, they are entitled to make a claim. Here at National Accident Helpline, we have made it easy for you to take the next step and go through with making a personal injury claim, by creating this handy checklist
You may be asked, further into the claiming process, for specific dates and periods of time when key events related to your injury occurred. To make things easier and smoother for both you and your injury lawyer, log them in a diary. Equally, letters and documents you receive from your GP and lawyer, should be kept all in one place. Organisation is the key to a quick and hassle free claims process.
National Accident Helpline will cover the cost of your travel expenditures, or for any medication you have had to pay for, so it will also be beneficial for you to keep details of these, such as receipts or prescriptions.
Document your injuries
We all recover from injuries in different ways and at different speeds. Taking photos and recording your symptoms as you recover will help identify the seriousness and impracticality of your injuries. It’s also helpful to get statements from witnesses or friends and family after the accident, especially regarding the help and assistance you have received from them. This information will all be used in favour of your claim, and will aid you in receiving maximum compensation.
Ensure that you have a solid interpretation of how the accident occurred and who was involved. The main areas of detail include names and contact details of all involved parties, as well as registration number/s of associated vehicles, if it was a road traffic accident. We can still proceed without all of this information; we will always try and process your claim based on the information that you have managed to collect, but every little helps.

The final phase is to contact a trusted professional, who will assist you with your claim on a no win no fee basis.
