If you live in Blandford you may be looking for an accident solicitor in Blandford to discuss a possible personal injury compensation claim. Here are some of the things an accident solicitor in Blandford, or one anywhere else will need to know.
5 Questions an accident solicitor in Blandford will ask
1 When exactly did the accident occur?
This is one of the first questions you will be asked, as you have to make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your having the accident. You will have to state the date and time, and if it was a road accident you will have to remember what the weather was like and if the road was lit (if it was dark) and what the surface of the road was like.
2 Who was responsible for the accident?
If you don’t know who was responsible this should be discussed with your solicitor. The point behind this question is that you cannot claim compensation for an accident that was your fault. You and your solicitor have to make a case to show that your accident was due to another person’s carelessness or negligence.
3 Was the accident reported?
If you were involved in a road accident then the police may have been on the scene and filed a report. If the accident happened at work, or in a public place it should have been reported and logged in the accident book along with the names and addresses of witnesses.
4 Do you have medical reports regarding your injuries?
You need to have received medical attention shortly after the accident and doctors reports should be available for your accident solicitor in Blandford to use as evidence to support your claim. If you did not seek medical attention until days after the accident, this might weaken your claim for compensation.
5 Do you have any other evidence to support your claim?
You might have taken photographs of the accident scene and your injuries, which will be useful in making a case for compensation.
