					                Looking for an Accident Claim Company
It’s hard to be in an accident especially if you’re seriously injured. You’ll feel distraught
and unfocused because all you’ll think about is how are you going to recover. But with
the help of an accident claim company you’ll find the answers you’re seeking out. They
will provide you, if you let them, the best possible compensation for your injuries and
additional damages.

But before looking for an accident claim company that will assist you with your accident
claim you need to do the following things right after the accident happened:

   1. If you or anyone else is seriously injured, you need to call for medical assistance
      immediately. You need to tell them the nature of your injuries. Tell them even if
      it’s not life threatening. Make sure that they have written all the injuries you have
      in their report. You will need this medical report when you are preparing in filing
      a claim.

   2. Some accidents happen on the road and police assistance is needed. So call them
      as soon as possible. Tell them your own version of the accident. Their report is
      also valuable when it comes to knowing the liable individual that caused the
      incident. The accident claim company you will hire will pass the evidence to their
      personal injury solicitor they will assign to you.

   3. For work related accidents, you need to tell your employer about it straight away.
      Make certain that authorised personnel will list the details of your accident and
      injuries in the company’s accident book. This is also good proof for the claimant
      against the defendant when the claim is filed.

   4. Always remember that you can only file a claim within 3 years after the accident
      took place. In the UK, this statute of limitation only involves adult who have no
      special reason why they can’t make a claim within 3 years. Minors have 3 years
      after their 18th birthday to make a claim for their injuries after an accident.

   5. Collect evidences at the scene of the accident. In road traffic accidents, it is
      important that you gather as much information about the other party. This should
      include their name, address, contact number, vehicle’s make, model and plate
      number and also his/her insurance details. You are also required by law to pass
      your own info to them as well. If you have a camera or a camera phone take
      pictures of the accident scene. This is also vital evidence.

   6. Talk to individuals who have witnessed the incident. This is especially needed in
      all kinds of accidents – may it be road traffic accidents, work related accidents,
      medical negligence, criminal related accidents or any other. The account of
      witnesses is valued at the court and it’s so much valuable especially in
      establishing blame.
After you’ve done the things listed above, you can now call on the accident claim
company you prefer and pass the information you’ve collected. They will then assign you
an accident claim solicitor who specialises in your case. It is also important to note that
there are accident claim companies in the UK that provide a no win no fee service. Under
this rule, your accident claim company will give you a solicitor to handle your case but
you don’t have to pay for them even if you win the case. They will shoulder all the costs
incurred during the claim process. If you lose, you have also no obligation to pay
anything. Just make sure that you read the contract they will provide you before signing
it.
