When you instruct a personal injury lawyer from Donoghue Solicitors we take care of everything, including care and assistance claims.

This is because our solicitors are skilled at identifying claims and helping accident victims with them. (Read our things to claim section to find out more.) Often these include things that claimants are unaware of, such as care claims.

What are care claims, and how do they fit in my accident injury claim?

Care claims, also known as ‘care and assistance’ claims, are part of a claimant’s accident compensation claim. They arise where a claimant has needed help from someone after an accident which was not their fault. Usually that help is provided by close friends or family, but in many cases it can be provided by others, such as contracted nurses or aides.

How will my personal injury lawyer help me with my assistance claim?

If you have received help as described, you can include an amount of the costs for their help within your accident injury claim.

Donoghue Solicitors personal injury lawyers will investigate and quantify your claim, taking full details, receipts and any necessary statements to assist you in proving it.

How can I help my personal injury lawyer to prove my care and assistance claim?

The more information you provide to your accident claims solicitor, the easier it will be for you to prove your claim. This is especially true in the area of care claims. Keep any receipts; write down all the help you receive, when and from which people. It may help to keep a diary of events after the accident. This should include details of care, expenses and details of how your injury has affected you, as that will assist the medical expert who provides a report on your claim. The medical expert is often asked to give an opinion about whether the care provided was reasonable, so the more information you can provide the better.
