A step-by-step guide to making a bike accident claim in Gedling
You have a right to be compensated for your suffering. Keeping this in mind, read on to discover the steps you should take if you want the claim process to go as smoothly as possible and be a success.
See a medical professional
You need to see a doctor if you want to have any chance of making a successful claim. The medical report they provide is crucial, in terms of evidence. It will document the injuries you have sustained – the extent of them and the treatment required. This will determine how much in general damages you receive.
It is vital to make sure you get the contact information of the person that caused the incident. This includes their name, address, telephone number and insurer details.
If you were involved in a road traffic accident, you should also aim to get the other driver’s registration number and the make and model of their vehicle. Besides this, it is wise to get the contact details of anyone that witnessed the incident as well, as their statements will be pivotal.
Jot down what happened
It is always a good idea to make a note of everything that occurred as soon as you get a moment to do so. This will ensure that you do not forget anything later down the line.
Keep proof of any expenses encountered
You will be able to claim for expenses related to the injury when you make your accident claim. This element of the compensation is known as special damages. Examples include loss of income, prescription costs, counselling expenses, travel costs, and more.
