Many people reach for the telephone as soon as they return home from the doctor’s following an accident. The number of accident claims being made in the United Kingdom on a daily basis is staggering. The problem is that while people may be unsure as to how long they should leave it before making their accident claim, the fact is that many people either claim too soon, or too late. Before you look for an accident lawyer in Coupar to help you with your claim make sure you have all the details he is going to need to start working on your behalf.
You cannot make a compensation claim for personal injury once three years have passed from the date of the accident. Any accident lawyer in Coupar you may approach will deem your accident as being out of scope unless it occurred in a workplace, then different terms and specialist law applies. But, even with this in mind, it is not sensible to make an accident claim before you have all the facts and figures necessary to proceed with your claim. Yes you can get your claim started; but it will not proceed very fast if it is missing bits of information. Before you start, make sure that you have all the details you need to hand, these could include:
- Time and date of the accident.
- Police report if one exists.
- Details of any accident report that was completed.
- Details of any witnesses to the accident.
- Photographs of the scene and the injury.
- Medical details of the injury suffered.
The final point is key. There is no point whatsoever in making a personal injury claim if you cannot prove any injury occurred. If you already have all these details to hand then there is nothing stopping you making a claim for your accident today.
