If you have been knocked off your bicycle by a tractor driver who was taking blind corners recklessly, then you may need to find out more about how an accident solicitor in Forest of Arden may be able to help you. If the accident resulted in you being injured, you may be able to claim compensation if it was definitely the other person’s fault. To claim compensation for your injuries, it needs to be proven that the accident was due to a third party. There are certain steps that you could take that would help this to happen.
The saying “a picture says a thousand words” is often true in compensation claims. For instance, if a photograph is taken of the spot where the accident happened, it could demonstrate that the tractor had actually been on the wrong side of the road at the time of the accident. This means that the accident was probably the other person’s fault.
If anyone is nearby and views what happens, you should try to get them to provide an eyewitness statement. Written records with contact addresses for witnesses are an excellent way to achieve this. This will also help to back up your evidence.
Take photographs of your injuries and make sure that you are examined by a doctor or nurse. It is important that you keep a note of which hospital or surgery you visited, too.
