    Advice on claiming in Suffolk Coastal


    When it comes to making a compensation claim, there is no denying that the lawyer you hire, whether you look for advice on claiming in Suffolk Coastal or further afield, is going to be largely responsible for ensuring you secure compensation.

    However, this does not mean that you do not have a role to play. There are ways you can help your accident lawyers to have the strongest chance of winning your case, and one of these ways is to report the incident correctly when required.

    Advice on claiming in Suffolk Coastal : Reporting the incident

    One type of scenario when it is necessary to report the incident is when you have been involved in a workplace accident of any sort. From construction accidents and falls from height to being diagnosed with vibration white finger, the scenarios vary dramatically. However, one thing that does not alter is the fact that you need to inform you employer or safety representative of the incident.

    They are required to have an accident book by law and you will need to record the incident in this. Failure to do so could result in trouble for you and your accident lawyers later down the line when you want to make a claim.

    Another time when you may need to report the incident is if you have been involved in a road traffic accident, as it may be necessary to call the police. If the crash that has occurred is causing a danger or interruption to other drivers, the police need to be contacted so that they can do something about the situation.

    Aside from this, if you have been involved in a dangerous incident or you have been the victim of a hit and run you will also need to report the accident to the police.

    Hopefully, you now have a better understanding as to why it is often a requirement to report an accident you have been involved in, even if you were not at fault. If you report the incident correctly, you could also increase your chances of getting compensation too. If you have any further questions about this, please do not hesitate to give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
