What you should do to make an accident and injury claim in Plymouth
Although we will do everything we can to help, there is nothing we can do if you don’t meet the criteria for claiming. This is why there are certain things that you ought to do to make sure that you are not hampering your chances of making a successful claim.
The first thing is make sure that you seek medical attention as soon as possible after your accident. This is not only common sense as far as your own health is concerned – after all, if you are injured surely you would want to take the time to make sure that you are OK? It also makes sense from the point of view of your claim.
Wounds heal, and by the time you get round to making your claim there is a distinct possibility that you won’t have any physical evidence of your injuries anymore. This means that the only proof of what happened to you in terms of your health is going to be found in your medical records. This will show how you were injured immediately after the accident, and what additional symptoms you have presented with over time.
If you do not go to see a doctor, or other medical professional then this proof is not going to be available. The person you are making a claim against will therefore not have any proof that you were injured, and a claim is not going to be able to proceed.
You also need to make sure that you do not leave it too long to start your claim. You have three years, in the majority of cases, to get your claim started. However, if you leave it till after this then there is every chance that your claim will be rejected.
