Accident Lawyer in West Lothian – what to ask
When you decide to make a claim for compensation you are likely to have a few questions.

This is why we make sure that you are appointed with your very own Accident Lawyer in West Lothian to help you through the process. They will be on hand to provide you with advice, information and to answer your questions – no matter what they are.
But what are some of the questions you should consider asking your Accident Lawyer in West Lothian?
Should I see a doctor?
If you are contacting your Accident Lawyer in West Lothian soon after your accident then you may find yourself asking if you should seek medical attention.
The fact is that many people do not feel that their injuries are serious enough after an accident to warrant medical attention; however, it is still wise to do so. The simple fact of the matter is that if you do not feel that you need medical attention it will be difficult to argue that you should be entitled to compensation.
If your symptoms become worse, and thus need medical attention and compensation, it is going to be hard to prove that these were as a result of an accident that happened previously if you do not have the initial accident recorded on your medical file.
What evidence do you need?
In all cases your Accident Lawyer in West Lothian will need a copy of your medical records which they can obtain on your behalf.
They will also need any other evidence you have managed to gather, such as photographs or video footage of the accident or scene. Perhaps you have witnesses who will be able to provide a statement, in which case your lawyer will need their contact details.
If you are intending to have your out of pocket expenses reimbursed then your Accident Lawyer in West Lothian will also need you to retain receipts as proof of these expenses. Document these, along with any travel you have had to undertake, and they can be added to your claim.
