Anyway, before thinking about filling up the claim, you have to be able to prove that the injuries were caused by another person's negligence. It is the job of your injury attorney to prove it and to evaluate the legality of your claim.
You can make the claim all by yourself but is better if you have the help of a professional injury lawyer. He will protect your interest and he will do whatever it takes to maximize the amount of money you receive in compensation so all your expenses are covered.
