Personal injury compensation guides include information such as basic concepts of filing a claim, understanding who's liable, steps to take after an accident, how to obtain compensation and tips on hiring a lawyer, according to the Injury Claim Coach.

Although information in specific guides may vary by supplier, the Complete Guide to Personal Injury and Accident Settlements published by Injury Claim Coach has two main parts: a claim guide and case types.

This guide includes this information in video and text format, and answers questions such as whether an attorney should be involved and the difference between filing a claim and filing a lawsuit.
