The Process of Claiming for Accident Compensation in the UK

If you’re in the unfortunate situation of having had an injury that wasn’t your fault and it’s left you in pain, there is a solution to your problem. There are claim companies in the UK, much like in the USA, that specifically deal with accident claims and their main job is to bring compensation for injuries sustained. This article will run through the process of how you make a claim if you’re in the UK and what to expect when you call up these companies. We spoke with one of those companies called Claim Today who deal with accident claims in Leeds, London or Manchester, and they gave us a short run through of the process behind a UK claim.

Firstly, what constitutes as an accident and what types of accidents can you claim for. Well it differs from company to company but the main sorts of accidents are, road traffic accidents (either passenger, pedestrian or driver), public transport accidents (public bus, trains or tram), accidents sustained at work (faulty equipment, bad training), slips and trips (on public pavements, roads), dog bites and clinical negligence (sub standard care, delayed medical diagnosis). If any of these unfortunate injuries have happened to you, chances are you have a legitimate claim and you could be due some financial help for your injuries

Secondly, no matter what injury you have sustained, make sure you gather all the details about the accident as much as possible. If you’re injured very badly and are unable to do this, make sure you get your friends or family to help you. Dates, times, witnesses, location and names of the people in involved are vital so make sure this information is collected first. Pictures are also very helpful where possible.

After you’ve gathered as much information as possible, it’s time to call the expert solicitors to assist you in your claim. They’ll visit you when it’s a convenient time and once they’ve discussed with you the details of the claim with you, they’ll handle the rest. Of course they will keep you updated every step of the way whilst they are investigating and following up your accident so you won’t need to call them for information.

After all the tricky paperwork has been handled by the specialist solicitors, if the claim is successful, you’ll get to keep 100% of the compensation awarded. Avoid the claims companies that take a cut of your compensation, stick with companies like Claim Today who give you all the money won in the claim because at the end of the day, its your money! You deserve all of it.
