What documents do I need to make an accident compensation claim in Knowsley?
The most important documents to be in your possession are your medical records, if you are to make an accident compensation claim in Knowsley. These will be required if your claim is successful. They describe your injuries in detail and will be used to work out how much compensation you might get in general damages. These are paid in compensation for your pain, distress and suffering and any loss of amenity you have suffered.
Your medical records will also prove that you had treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after your accident. It is important to be able to prove that you did.
If you were in an accident and the police attended the scene (perhaps you were injured in a road traffic accident for example), you will also need a copy of their accident report. The police have to investigate the causes of some accidents and the report will say how and why the accident happened. If you were not to blame for the accident, this will be shown in the report.
Special damages can be awarded to cover any expenses you have incurred because of your injury. These can be past and future expenses. Should you wish to claim for loss of earnings, you will need your pay slips.
If you have suffered life-changing injuries then special damages will cover the costs of having your home adapted to suit your new needs.
They can also be awarded if you continue to need medical care and treatment. Special damages are given so that you are not out of pocket solely because of your accident and injuries.
