The time after a serious accident can be an upsetting and stressful one, and the last thing that you want to do is to focus on making an accident injury claim in Thurrock when you have other things to do. However, if you have had an accident which is the fault of someone else, it does make sense to claim compensation, as the money from a compensation claim can come in so useful later on down the line.
Here are some of the types of evidence which will be most useful when making a successful claim, so that you can leave your claim up to your injury lawyer and focus on your recovery.
A medical report
Your doctor should look you over as soon as possible after your accident so that they can make an accurate medical report which lists the injuries that you have suffered, how bad they were and what is likely to have caused them. All of this information works as evidence to prove that you did sustain the injuries that you are claiming for and that you are entitled to compensation.
A police report
These are more likely at the scene of road accidents, but any accident that the police have been called to will usually have a police report written about it somewhere. A police report is simply the most comprehensive record of the accident and what happened during it, as well as photographs, witness statements and contact details for everyone involved.
Photographs are evidence which provides visual proof of what you are claiming, so can be useful in almost any claim. You can take photographs of the scene itself or the damage to your car or personal property. You can also take photographs of your injuries and how they progress.
