    If you are just starting out with your claim then it could be handy to read through the information contained below to help you understand what you are going to need to provide.

    Details of the accident

    Your accident solicitor in East Dorset will undoubtedly need as much information from you as possible about the accident that led to your injuries. This is so that they can understand what happened, who was involved, who was responsible and why.

    The sorts of things that you are going to need to tell them about are:

    • When the accident occurred – this is important so that they can include it in your claim, but also to help ensure that it happened with in the last three years.
    • Who was involved – they will need to know if anyone else was involved in the accident. This can help ascertain who was responsible, but also if there are any other claimants involved, or if there are witnesses that can help support your case.
    • What happened – details of what happened will help your accident solicitor in East Dorset demonstrate why the accident could have been avoided, and why liability lies with the person against whom you are claiming.
    • What injuries you suffered and how – you will need to outline how your injuries were caused, and what these injuries were. You can provide your medical records as support of this.
    • Other evidence – if you have photographs taken from the scene of the accident, or any other evidence then you should tell your accident solicitor in East Dorset and provide these to them at the first available opportunity.

    Your accident solicitor in East Dorset is also likely to advise you to start keeping records. These can be records of the amount of pain you are in and the impact that your injuries are having on your day to day life. These can then be used to ascertain how much compensation you are entitled to. It is important to keep records because this sort of information can be easily forgotten over time.
