If you have been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you have the legal right to pursue financial compensation. This applies to all kinds of accident, from slips, trips and falls to road traffic accidents. A claims attorney will be able to help you ascertain your eligibility for compensation, and provide you with invaluable legal advice.

If you want to find out more about how the claims process works, or even get an estimated pay-out, then you should contact a claims attorney.

Do I need to have a reason for making a claim?

No. Most people only contact a claims attorney once their injuries start to have an adverse effect on their lives. For example, if somebody has had to have a few months off work without full pay because of their accident, and they have lost out financially as a result, then they may choose to look into the claims process and how it works.

Or in another example, somebody may love horse riding but their injuries may have stopped them from undertaking their hobby and as a result, they make wish to make a claim.

An initial consultation with an attorney is usually free with no obligation, so the claimant has nothing to lose under the circumstances. Legal advice can be sought if:

  • You are unsure about whether or not you have a claim;
  • Your accident or injuries have affected you financially;
  • Your accident or injuries have stopped you from living your life.

However, it is important to remember that you need not have a specific reason for wishing to make a claim or for seeking legal advice. If you were injured as a result of somebody else’s actions, it is your legal right to compensation. Exercising your legal right with a claims attorney requires no reasoning whatsoever.

What information should I provide to my claims attorney?

In order to provide you with sound legal advice, you should provide your attorney with the date your accident happened and a write-up of how your accident happened. Based on this information, your attorney will be able to ascertain your eligibility for making a claim.

If you do choose to make a claim, then you will need to provide a detailed statement. You will also need to attend a medical examination set up by your attorney, to ascertain the extent of your injuries, a recovery period and a prognosis for the future.
