What to do
If you suffer a recreational injury that was not your fault, there are a number of steps you can take to increase your chance of a successful personal injury claim. Firstly and most importantly, seek medical assistance. The sooner you seek treatment the sooner you will recover from your recreational injury. In addition, medical records of your injury will be important evidence when making your claim. Keep receipts for any expenses you may incur – these may include transport to hospital appointments, medicines and time when you are unable to work. Your solicitor should be able to claim these back as part of your compensation package.
As soon as you are able record all the details you remember about the accident and get the contact details of any witnesses. If you are someone else are able to take photographs of the accident scene then this can also be used as evidence. It is worth doing this even if you’re not sure about making a personal injury claim. Claims can be made up to three years after you sustained your recreational injury so recording the details while they’re still fresh in your mind will increase your chances of a successful claim in the future.
