Telling an accident solicitor in Bridgend about your accident

Whatever you decide, you will need to prove that your accident in the Bridgend area was caused by somebody else’s negligence, if you wish to claim compensation and receive justice.
Your local accident solicitor in Bridgend will ask you for all the names and contact details of the people involved in the accident, and if there were any witnesses. If you have photographic evidence of your injuries or any other circumstances of the accident, this will support your case. In addition, your accident solicitor in Bridgend or the specialist Accident Advice Helpline might recommend may arrange for another medical assessment of your injuries. A second opinion, if you like, that will be provided by an independent doctor and such medical evidence will also support your claim.
It’s best to gather all relevant documents and photographs together and keep them safe in a folder or file. Make sure you keep receipts, invoices and bills for any expenses you might have paid during your recovery. For example, if you had a road traffic accident you may be forced to hire a car, while your own car is being repaired or you may have to have private medical treatment to help your recovery. Such expenses can be included in your compensation claim.
