Best Personal Injury Lawyers Legal Advice UK

After sustaining a personal injury, yes, obtaining free initial advice from one of the many thousands of injury lawyers / solicitors (the terms are generally interchangeable) is a good first course of action. But there may be other practical steps you should take:-

  1. Considering notifying the police – particularly if the injury resulted from a serious road accident
  2. For road traffic accidents, report it to your insurance company. Your insurance policy may not be valid otherwise. Note that some insurance companies will recommend their own preferred personal injury solicitors but these may not pursue your case as voraciously as other independent ones. So consider going straight to a great injury lawyer before contacting your insurance company. Note that if a motoring offence is involved you or the other party may need a top road traffic defence lawyer to help, as opposed to a PI lawyer – the two are completely different.
  3. Report the injury to your doctor – even if the injury appears to be relatively minor, it could become more serious. And if your case ends up going to court (around 95% of all accident claims in the UK will settle before going to court), you will need medical evidence.
  4. Gather evidence regarding the accident and your injuries eg take photos, write up a detailed account of what happened and try to acquire a names and addresses of witnesses who saw the incident. All of this could be invaluable when it comes to making your claim.
