Making a plaque unveiling ceremony accident claim can help you if you have been injured during such an occasion. There are often financial consequences arising from an accident, which can considerably add to your stress as you recover. Claiming compensation for an accident that was not your fault can give you some control back over the situation. At Accident Advice Helpline we are proud of our track record in helping many thousands of accident victims claim the compensation they deserve.
When to make a claim
You can start a plaque unveiling ceremony accident claim at any time in the three years following your accident, but usually the sooner you start the better. Costs will probably have started to mount up from the day of your injury – the sooner you start the sooner you may be able to get your compensation.
To be eligible to claim, the accident must have left you with injuries severe enough to need medical attention and have been caused by the negligence of a third party. At a plaque unveiling ceremony this is likely to mean a trip over a hazard at the venue or a fall, for example from some poorly constructed staging.
Making a successful plaque unveiling ceremony accident claim
By engaging the services of the experts at Accident Advice Helpline you increase your chances of gaining the maximum compensation. There are also a number of other things you can do that will further back your claim.
Consult a doctor about your injuries as soon as possible after the accident so that the injuries and consequent treatment can be documented. Make sure the incident was logged in the venue’s accident book and take photographs of your injury if possible.
Make your own record of the details of the accident whilst they are fresh in your mind and try to get the names and contact details of witnesses. If possible, take photographs of the accident scene and any hazards that contributed to it.
Keep receipts of all the costs caused by your accident including the cost of therapies, prescription charges and transport to appointments. Also record any income lost when you have been unable to work.
