The General Process of a Personal Injury Case

Step 1
Reporting the accident

It is of vital importance to report your accident to the relevant insurance company as soon as possible to ensure that the right to compensation does not expire. We at Fortis will report the accident on your behalf or assist you with filling out the correct form.

Step 2
Data collection

The necessary data varies across case types, but for personal injury cases the main case data is data that proves and documents the accident and the injury; such as police reports, doctor’s reports and medical records, records from physical therapists, psychologists, dentists and other parties that assist the injured person in recovery. We at Fortis will take care of the data collection on your behalf.

Step 3
Assessment of injuries

When all the necessary data has been collected it is time to commission an impartial third-party assessor to assess the extent and the severity of the injuries suffered in the accident. As a general rule the assessment is not conducted until at least one year has elapsed from the accident’s occurrence. We at Fortis will guide you every step of the way during the assessment period of the case.

Step 4

We use our decades of experience to make a claim for monetary compensation based on the result of the assessment. In the vast majority of cases the insurance company agrees to settle the case based on the assessment. Should the claim for compensation be disputed or the settlement unsatisfactory we can take the insurance company and other liable parties to court at your discretion.
