Personal Injury Claim Guide

1

Talk to us at Pryers

We will want to know the circumstances of your accident, who or what caused it, details of injuries you’ve suffered and any financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. Pryers will then write to the person responsible and their insurers to notify them of your case. We must establish at this stage that the other party was at fault.

Medical examination

We’ll arrange with you a medical examination at a time and place to suit you. This medical report will help us be able to advise you on the likely value of your compensation if your claim is successful.

3

Total all losses

We’ll also need to document all your losses so keep your receipts and invoices relating to the injury, as well as noting if you have been off work and have lost income – we will ask your employer for confirmation of your loss.

4

Negotiate a settlement

When we have all the information gathered together we will submit this to the other party’s insurer and ask them to put forward an offer to settle the claim. We will negotiate a settlement proposal on your behalf, subject to your agreement.

5

Do I have to go to court?

If we cannot reach agreement with the insurers, we may issue court proceedings on your behalf so that a judge can decide the correct award. This does not mean you will need to attend court as most cases are settled out of court, but it is a possibility.
