Simplified Guide to Personal Injury Claims: Your Comprehensive Handbook

Never made a personal injury claim before? At Stonehewer Moss we understand that the legal landscape can be intimidating, especially for those unfamiliar with the process. Accidents are unexpected and often life-altering events that can leave a person uncertain of what or who to turn to.

This comprehensive guide aims to demystify the personal injury claims process in the UK, providing you with a step-by-step roadmap to navigate the complexities and ease any concerns you may have.

Understanding Personal Injury Claims

A personal injury claim is a legal process through which an individual seeks compensation for injuries sustained as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful actions. Whether the injury is caused by a road traffic accident, an accident at work or in public, the key to a successful claim is understanding and implementing these fundamental steps.

1. Seek Immediate Medical Attention

Your health is of utmost importance. Following an accident, you should seek prompt medical attention. Not only is this crucial for your well-being, but it also establishes a clear record of your injuries, which is essential for your claim.

2. Document the Incident

Collating evidence in support of your claim is key to building a strong case and more often than not will determine the outcome. Take photographs of the accident scene and your injuries, obtain contact information from any witnesses and collect relevant documents such as medical records, police reports, and any other pertinent information that may support your claim.

3. Report the Incident

Depending on the nature of the accident, it may be necessary to report it. This step is compulsory for those who have suffered an accident at work, as it is a legal requirement for employers to complete incident reports for any injuries sustained onsite. The detail in these reports can then be used in evidence.


Addressing Common Concerns

It is only natural for anyone to have concerns when thinking about pursuing a personal injury claim, especially if you are worried about your future employment or placing financial strain on others. Let’s address some of these common worries.

Fear of Losing Your Job

In the UK, there are employment laws in place to protect individuals from unfair dismissal due to pursuing a personal injury claim. Employers are legally required to have employers liability insurance to cover such situations, which means your claim should not impact your job security. If you face discrimination at work due to filing a claim, remember that it is against the law and you have grounds to address such issues.

Financial Strain on Others

Personal injury claims are typically covered by insurance, either from your own of the defendants. This ensures that compensation is obtained from insurance policies instead of an individual’s finances. You must remember that seeking injury compensation is not about causing financial distress for someone, it is to cover the losses you have incurred as a result of injury caused by someone else’s negligence.

Lengthy Legal Battles

While some cases may take time to resolve, the majority of personal injury claims are settled out of court.

We strive for efficient and fair resolutions, ensuring your case is handled with the utmost care.
