Accident claim in Hanley and the questions you may be asked
Some of the questions you are asked when trying to file a claim form may seem strange, but it is certainly in your best interests to answer them as honestly as you possibly can.
- You may be asked whether you were injured in the last three years. This helps to establish whether your claim is current. It helps if you can remember the exact date and time of the incident, so that you can put it on the record for your accident claim in Hanley.
- It is important to be honest too about whose fault the accident was. If it was your fault, you may not be able to lay a claim.
- If you received medical attention, don’t forget to mention this, and to add the details and forms of any medical scans or tests you had. This helps to establish the extent of your injuries and how large any compensation should be. Don’t forget to be specific about every injury and if you have photos, attach those too.
- You may need to attach a description of the incidents leading up to the accident and what actually happened. Write down all the details of the event and as many names, times and other smaller details you can remember, in order to ensure the accident claim in Hanley is as accurate as possible.
