Whether your accident happened whilst driving, being conveyed as a passenger or walking, VZLR will work hard to ensure that you claim compensation for the injuries sustained and help claim your medical expenses back.

The basic things that you will need in order to institute a claim include:

  • Photographs of the accident
  • Photographs of your injury
  • Written reports from the accident (eg. Police report if they attended)
  • Written reports from medical professionals
  • Names, contact details, and any documentation from witnesses


Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the amount that you are planning on claiming back you may also need:

  • Proof of loss of earnings due to the accident
  • Proof of out-of-pocket expenses such as prescriptions and receipts for treatments.


If liability for your accident is disputed then you may need to provide further documentation or evidence to complete your claim for compensation, this could include:

  • In respect of a road traffic accident - A sketched plan of the position of vehicles and photographs of road markings, accident report, eye witness accounts
  • For accidents at work - The specifications of any damaged machinery that may have caused injury
  • Slips or trips - Photographs of the hazard that caused your accident together with photographs of any disclaimer notices in an around the scene
