You should be able to make accident and injury claims in Derbyshire Dales against your employer if you have been involved in an accident which was not your fault. However, if you want your claim to be successful, you will need to find a great injury lawyer who can make your claim on your behalf as well as take the right steps following your accident so that it is more likely that a claim will be taken seriously.
Here are some of the steps to take after your accident, so that you can make a claim when you want to.
Seek medical attention
If you want to make a claim at any point, you will need to prove that a doctor has seen you as soon as the accident occurred. A doctor will be able to look at your injuries and work out how serious they are and what is most likely to have caused them, and this will be a vital piece of evidence in your claim. Not only this, but it is important for your health that you are looked over, in case your injuries are even more serious than you think they are.
Talk to witnesses
At the scene of your accident, look around to work out who was there and witnessed what happened. You don’t need to talk to them right away, as your health is more important, but you should later find out if they are willing to speak for you in a compensation claim.
Report the accident
Report the accident as soon as you can, whilst the memory is still fresh. This will enable you to fill out a concise accident report which proves what happened and also lets your employer know what they are dealing with. Your employer may even offer you compensation there and then.
