Settling Personal Injury Claims
When it comes to settling personal injury claims there are a number of steps and procedures that you, as the injured party, need to go through to ensure you receive the maximum amount of personal injury compensation.
These sorts of claims can be pursued if, for example, you have been injured in a car accident, tripped over a hazard at work or even bitten by a dog.
The bottom line here is that if you have suffered physical injury because of somebody’s or an organisations negligence, than you are entitled to claim personal injury compensation.
In this article we will look at the steps you need to take in settling personal injury claims.
Seek Medical Attention
Before anything else you need to take care of yourself and get medical attention for your injury. Even if you think your injuries are very slight you should see your doctor as you will need to produce a medical report at some point in your claim.
Make a Written Record
Unfortunately the legal process revolves around paperwork and settling personal injury claims is no different. Commit as much as you can to paper.
Write down as much as you can remember about the circumstances leading up your injury and the events before, during and after the incident.
Make sure your written record includes the names and addresses of witnesses who are willing to go make a statement about what they saw.
You should also keep a record of any expenses incurred (for example, travelling to hospital, loss of earnings, damaged possessions etc) as this should be included in your compensation claim.
If at all possible take digital photos of the incident scene and of your injuries. Visual evidence can be very important further down the line when the claim comes to be settled or blame apportioned.
