    Accident Claim in Copeland


    Top tips for anyone making an accident claim in Copeland

    1. Make your claim as soon as possible!

    There is no time to waste when it comes to making an accident claim in Copeland. Did you know there is actually a three year time limit on all personal injury claims? Not only this, but it will be easier to make a case the sooner you do so. The details will be fresh in your mind and it will be easier to gather evidence, such as witness statements.

    1. Keep proof of expenses

    Have you had to pay for someone to look after your children whilst you recover? Have you suffered a loss of income due to your inability to work? Have you had to pay for prescriptions and treatment? It is vital to keep proof of such expenses, such as receipts, as you will be able to claim for them as special damages.

    1. Use a no win no fee* solicitor

    There are lots of benefits to be gained by using a no win no fee* solicitor. You will not need any money to begin making your accident claim in Copeland. Moreover, financial risk will be minimised and you can be sure the solicitor will only take on your case if they believe you have a strong chance of winning. Because of this, all of our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    1. Report your incident to the relevant people

    In some instances you will need to report the accident. Workplace incidents are the most obvious examples of this. You need to report the incident to your employer or your safety representative, as they will need to record it in the accident book, which all employers are required to have by law. In some instances, such as criminal injuries and road traffic accidents, the incident will need to be reported to the police.

    1. Take photographs

    This is only applicable to some incidents, with road traffic accidents being the prime example. If there has been damage to your car or indeed the road, take some photos, as they will serve as proof.
