If you need an accident solicitor Berwick-upon-Tweed based, then you might have had an accident which was no fault of yours, or you could have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, for which your employer might be held responsible. You can make a personal injury compensation claim in either if these instances.
If you have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault within the last three years, then you should talk to an accident solicitor in Berwick-upon-Tweed to find out if you have grounds for filing a claim. If you have been diagnosed with an occupational (work-related) illness then you need to file a claim within three years of the first diagnosis.
To help your claim you will need witness names, addresses and contact numbers in the case of an accident, and perhaps also in the case of a work-related illness. If you were involved in a road traffic accident, then there could be a police report. You should also take photographs of the scene of any accident as this will strengthen your claim. You will also be asked about medical treatment received and the sooner you see a doctor after an accident the better, as some injuries can be worsened if medical attention is not given shortly after the injury.
The sooner you file a claim for a personal injury the better, as you will remember the details of an accident more clearly if it happened only a short while before.
