Accidents happen. Unfortunately it will be the alibi of the person reckless enough to cause such injuries to happen to you. How can you use the law if you think you deserve to be compensated for your loss?

The steps

There are steps that you need to take in order to ensure claims will be earned. You need help from a claims lawyer to get sound advice regarding what to claim, how to claim and the rest of the technicalities required in filing for a claim. The steps are enumerated below:

- Speak to a lawyer experienced enough to apply the law on your situation
Everyone knows their civil rights. Not everyone knows how these civil rights can be applied if you think yours are violated. With the help of a lawyer, you get quotes straight from the law itself that are applicable to the claim you intend to file. They can also provide information about similar situations where the same law applied that got them qualified for a claim.

- Put everything in writing
The lawyer you may be talking to at the moment may have given you a form to fill up related to the claim. It is not enough that you remember everything because you were behind the wheel. Put them in writing because what you remember in the middle of the accident will not remain after a few hours. Not everyone is gifted with memory sharp enough until the settlement proceedings. If you haven’t met the lawyer yet but you are already talking on the phone, jot down notes that will serve as your outline later on for the brief enquiry form that you will fill up later and for the affidavit to be attached as well. Keep it consistent with the police report too if ever there is any. The DUI charge might work to your favor too.

- Mention some previous medical history if applicable
Tell the lawyer first and immediately. The person whom you’re filing a claim against might end up using this against you if overlooked. Some accidents happen because of a heart attack in the middle of the road. Some medical conditions produce similar results. But if you can prove that despite aforementioned medical condition, you still made a diligent effort to be safe, then the lawyer will provide remedies for you. At least he or she learned of it first before the defendant did.

- Provide the medical report
Since claims are monetary, you need to clarify which among the medical expenses apply to your claim instead of outright including everything including psychological trauma and sleepless nights there. While it is understandable how stressful it can get, if you are going to claim as much as you think the whole ordeal is worth, you need to quote the law in doing so. What you know is still different from that the law says. And most of the time, it is the professional Glasgow-bases claims lawyer that will guide you to the appropriate provision.

The severity of the injuries would factor in the claims too. How many days you think will miss due to the time needed to be confined? A medical certificate verified and signed by your doctor would be helpful too. Claims can possibly include compensation for the number of days that you failed to show up for work because you got injured. Nobody wanted to skip work due somebody else’s fault. So get this mentioned to your lawyer too.

Remember that claims are largely based on the pain and suffering that you went through this ordeal. Loss of earnings or income factor in this endeavor too. And you cannot come up with an estimated amount until you get in touch with a claims lawyer the soonest time possible.
