    What to do if you have an accident out and about

    No matter where you go accidents can happen. Therefore, it is always important to know what to do if you are injured while out-and-about as you may be entitled to compensation.

    In order to make a claim there are a number of things that you need have in evidence to prove that someone else was at fault.

    Here is a short guide to help you know what information you need to collect if you or a companion has an accident.

    Take pictures

    If you are to make a compensation claim you will need to have evidence that the area where you had your accident was unsafe.

    In order to do this you should take pictures of the scene, particularly the area where the accident occurred, plus any safety equipment which is out of place.

    Taking pictures using your mobile phone should supply enough evidence to support your claim, so don’t worry about carrying a camera around with you at all times.

    If you have an accident on premises report it

    If you have any kind of accident, such as a slip, trip or fall, on business premises, make sure that you have the incident recorded in the company’s accident book.

    This way there is a record of the incident that you can use in court if you decide to claim compensation for your accident.

    If you don’t have the accident recorded it will be very difficult for you to prove it in your compensation claim.

    Take contact details of witnesses

    If you are planning on claiming compensation for your accident then you should get the names and contact details of as many people as possible that were present when the accident occurred.

    If you need to take your claim to court you will be able to call upon these people to help support your compensation claim.
