    An accident lawyer in Gloucester can help you win the compensation you deserve if you have been left injured through a non-fault accident. Accident Advice Helpline helps victims of negligence and carelessness win the compensation they deserve. When thinking of claiming compensation you may be at a loss as what to do and the best way to go about making accident compensation claim. The top tips below by an accident lawyer in Gloucester will help you with your decision on making a claim and what to do to help your case.

    Make sure you qualify

    There are certain criteria you need to fulfill in order to make a valid compensation claim. Generally you have 3 years from the date of the accident (or the date you were aware you were injured) in order to make a claim. There are certain exceptions, such as industrial illness and if you were a child at the time of the accident. If you have any doubt whether you claim qualifies for compensation, an accident lawyer in Gloucester will be able to discuss your individual case with you and advise you on whether you have a valid claim.

    Keep records

    It will be very useful for your accident lawyer in Gloucester if you have a record of your accident and resulting injuries. Keep a note of all the details relating to the accident such as time, date, location and names of people involved. Also whilst the incident is fresh in your memory, write an account of what exactly happened. If you received medical treatment, make a note of whom you were seen by and their diagnosis.

    Make sure you also report the accident to the relevant authority, for example report a car accident to the police and your insurance company. An accident at work should be reported to your manager and entered in the Accident Book.
