Make a personal injury or damage claim

You can use this online form to make a personal injury or damage claim.

Before you start

To support your claim, you'll need to provide:

  • contact information
  • up to 5, wide angled, colour photos that show:
    • the damage
    • the cause of the incident
    • the location of the incident with some background for context. For example, a house, landmark or street light. If there's a street light nearby, you should make a note of the number on the column.

Photographs should be marked to show the:

  • exact point where the incident happened
  • direction that you were travelling

Personal injury claims

You can make a personal injury claim for yourself or on behalf of someone else if they lack legal capacity. This means, if they:

  • are under the age of 18
    or
  • have a mental impairment that affects their ability to make legal decisions

To make a personal injury claim on behalf of someone who lacks legal capacity, you must meet the requirements to be a litigation friend.

If you're making a claim for yourself, you must provide:

  • your employment details, if you were employed at the time of the incident
  • your National Insurance number
  • your date of birth

If you're making a claim for someone who lacks legal capacity, you must provide:

  • their employment details, if they were employed at the time of the incident
  • their National Insurance number, if they're over 18
  • their date of birth
  • details about your relationship to the injured person

Personal possession or property damage claims

You must provide:

  • a V5 document to show proof of vehicle ownership
