Evidence and advice on personal injury claims in Thanet
So, how much evidence will you need? The precise circumstances that your accident took place in will obviously dictate the amount and types of evidence that might be available to you, but there will be a few things that are pretty common to most personal injury claims. All personal injury claimants will need to have medical proof that the injuries they claim they sustained actually happened. You won’t be able to show up at personal injury tribunal with your leg in plaster and use that as evidence that you were injured. The injuries you sustained will need to have been detailed in your medical records by a qualified doctor.
Your 100% no win no fee* personal injury law firm will also find it most useful if you have photographs or film of the incident in which you were injured or its direct aftermath. If you can get hold of some CCTV footage of what happened to you, this might make your case all the stronger.
The contact details of people who might have witnessed what happened to you would also be great. You might find that these people would be able to give evidence or provide a statement on your behalf.
