Top tips on making a Brynaman accident claim
Making a Brynaman accident claim may seem daunting. After all, it is not something you do every day. Most people reading this will have probably never dealt with any type of personal injury claim before. Don’t let this deter you. You have a right to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. In this post, we have put together some top tips to help you when launching a claim and securing the payout you deserve.
Make a note of what happened – It is a good idea to make a note of what happened as soon as you get the chance. This will ensure you do not miss anything that is important to your Brynaman accident claim.
Choose a no-win, no-fee solicitor – There are many different types of personal injury lawyers available. It is important to narrow down your search effectively. Make sure you choose a solicitor that works on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means that you will only need to pay legal fees if your case is successful; therefore, it eliminates the financial risk that most people associate with making a claim. It also ensures that you do not end up in a situation whereby a lawyer has merely taken on your case for financial purposes when really they do not think it has a great chance of being awarded compensation.
See a doctor as soon as possible – It does not matter how minor your injuries are, or how much you hate going to hospital, you need to see a medical professional as soon as possible. This is because the doctor’s report is the most crucial piece of evidence in any case.
Keep receipts of any expenses – You should keep receipts or any other type of proof of any expenses relating to the accident. Examples include childcare costs, travel expenses, prescription expenses, loss of income, the cost of counselling, and hospital car parking tickets. You will be able to claim for these as special damages.
Gather as much evidence as you can – The more evidence you have, the easier your case will be. If applicable, take photos of the scene and your injuries. It is also advisable to get the contact details of anyone that witnessed the incident.
