Making a Personal Injury Claim

It’s a dangerous world out there. Even if you dot all of your i’s and cross all of your t’s, unforeseen events and occurrences can and do happen daily. That’s why there are so many different types of insurance policies available and so many solicitors offering their wares.

Should you or someone in your circle be injured in an accident or experience any kind of personal injury while at work or play, don’t hesitate to assert your legal right to compensation.

Assess if you might have some type of motor or home insurance coverage that will apply towards financing your personal injury claim. If you happen to possess such insurance, the payment required for the services of your solicitor may be easier to manage than you might think.

If you determine that you do have a policy that will cover the expenses of the solicitor as they litigate your personal injury claim, consult with them as soon as practicable after your injury.

Many solicitors will work under what is called a “no win, no fee” arrangement. Should you use that method, be prepared for a substantial “success fee” to be extracted to cover the expenses incurred by your solicitor and his or her associates.

But consider that par for the course because without your solicitor you would never have won your case. Most solicitors will be fair and your remaining settlement ought to do much to ease your financial and emotional distress.

Until you have secured the services of a solicitor for your personal injury claim there is still much that you can do to further your cause in the meanwhile. First of all, relax. Don’t allow yourself to stress out. Take a deep breath and take inventory of the health of yourself and family.

Make a list of the salient facts about your accident or injury. Leave no stone unturned to catalog the losses from your personal injury. The more facts and figures that you can record about; the circumstances leading up to it, what occurred while it was taking place and the affects of its aftermath, the better prepared that you will be to bring the person or persons responsible to account, and to get back to living your life as you prefer.

Such a detailed record of your personal injury will go a long way towards getting off on the right foot with your solicitor. That will provide him or her with potent ammunition to assist you in the successful outcome of your case.
