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.
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.
