The preliminary steps of Personal Injury compensation claims

It’s very important to seek legal advice if you have suffered a personal injury. Throughout your claim, you will be required to provide information and evidence relating to your injuries or illness to maximise your entitlements. Such evidence includes:

+ Medical / Sickness certificates demonstrating a reduced work capacity;
+ Pay slips and tax returns in support of claims for loss of earnings;
+ Photographs depicting your injuries;
+ Medical / radiological reports;
+ Receipts and invoices relating to medical expenses.

It is important to note that strict time limits apply to all Personal Injury claims. Most Personal Injury Claims require a claim to be formally filed in court within three years of the injury or the illness being diagnosed.

Failure to make a claim within the applicable time limit can put your claim at risk of being statute barred. It is essential that you seek legal advice from an experienced Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible after you have suffered an injury or been diagnosed with an illness to ensure you are aware of what time limits may apply to your claim.

At C+F Lawyers, our Personal Injury Lawyers have a combined 65+ years of experience in dealing with a broad range of Personal Injury claims. We can guide you through the claims process and ensure you better understand the time limits that may apply to you.

Frequently asked questions

What does no win, no fee mean?

A no-win, no-fee arrangement guarantees that in the unlikely event your claim isn’t successful, you will have no charge for legal services! However, this doesn’t apply to the payment of third-party disbursements, including medical report fees, court filing fees, etc.

Should I get a Motor Accident Lawyer after my accident?

There are many things to think about after an accident, and an expert on your side will make the process easier. A Personal Injury lawyer will help with everything from getting your claim accepted, getting medical treatment approved, and gaining access to fair and reasonable compensation at the earliest opportunity!

At C+F Lawyers, you don’t pay any fees upfront. We don’t charge until the successful conclusion of your claim.

How long can the claims process take?
