“As the winter months and cold weather conditions are soon to be with us, the risk of personal injury claims can increase and Quinn Legal are here to help and support you through the process of pursuing your claim for compensation as a result”
The cold weather we experience in the winter months can lead to a significant rise in personal injury claims, especially in road traffic accidents and slip/trip claims.
The process of making a personal injury claim
Our highly experienced team of personal injury Advocates will obtain as much information as possible with regards to the accident circumstances and the injuries sustained and discuss with you how your claim can be funded. We then submit the claim to the Defendant where we will await their liability decision. If liability is admitted, we then push on to obtain your medical records and arrange a medical appointment with a suitable medico-legal expert. We will then gather information with regard to any expenses you may have incurred as a result of the accident, such as loss of earnings, travel expenses and medical expenses. Once all appropriate evidence is obtained, we will submit this to the Defendant and negotiate settlement on your behalf. If liability is denied, we then go through the process of trying to prove the claim by way of evidence of the Defendants breach of duty. If we are unable to negotiate settlement, we may need to issue court proceedings in the High Court of the Isle of Man.
What information do you need to provide to your Advocate when making a personal injury claim?
We ask that you try and provide as much information as possible when making a personal injury claim and we will ask you to complete our personal injury questionnaire. This would include details of the accident itself, injuries sustained, any details you have for the third party and any witnesses to the accident. Any photographs taken of your injuries and the accident location itself are helpful in assisting our Advocates.
We do however have to consider each case on an individual basis and as such we would ask you to contact Quinn Legal to discuss the circumstances of your claim and how best our specialist team of personal injury Advocates can help you.
