Whenever you make a claim you’re embarking on a journey whose outcome is not certain. While your lawyer can provide expert advice and estimates on what might happen, the final decision will come down to the law courts and how they view the case.
Often the case will be keenly contested by the other side. For example a workplace may believe that you were at fault for the injury and that they shouldn’t have to pay; a driver in a road accident might think you were to blame for the accident.
When there is considerable disagreement between the parties, the courts will have to make a decision about whose story they find the most compelling. The only way they can do this is to look at all the available evidence.
Getting evidence together
The more independent verification of your story you have the better. You should take photos of the scene and contact numbers of any witnesses. Their statements will be crucial. If you know of any CCTV footage it is worth making a note.
You should also indicate whether or not you received medical assistance as a result of your injury and, where damage to property has occurred, you should get two estimates for how much repairs might cost.
Once you have got all that evidence together it is a good time to contact an expert for advice. At Accident Advice Helpline our operatives are on hand at any time of the day or night to speak to you.
This advice service is free of charge with no obligation to carry on using it in the future. In other words this is like dipping your toe in the water to see what happens.
Our expert advisors can look at all this evidence and make an assessment about how likely it is that the court will believe your story over the other side’s.
Then and only then will they tell you whether or not they think you should make a claim. If so, then we can help you find the best injury solicitors in St James for your requirements.
