Thousands of people are injured while using the road in Britain every year, whether as drivers, passengers, cyclists or pedestrians, and it’s no surprise that many people choose to claim the compensation they are legally entitled to following a severe accident. However, many people are also unsure as to the best way to gain evidence of their injuries or the accident they were involved in to use as part of their claim.
If you choose to make car accident claims in Bradford, you’ll be asked to provide evidence as part of your case, which will demonstrate and prove that your accident occurred in exactly the way you say it did, and that your injuries were the direct result of your accident. You will also need to demonstrate that the accident occurred due to someone else’s negligence, rather than your own. Without this evidence, there would be no way to unequivocally show that your accident happened in exactly the way you described.
Finding evidence for car accident claims in Bradford
So where should you look when it comes to finding evidence for your claim?
A good place to begin is with medical records or police statements taken immediately after the accident took place. If you were severely injured in the accident and required immediate medical attention from emergency services, there may be a note of this on a patient clinical record, especially if you were taken to hospital.
This can be used to provide evidence of your injuries occuring at the scene of the accident. Additionally, if the police took a statement from you during your accident, you may be able to use this as evidence of your accident occurring as you claim it did.Open Claim Calculator
Another way in which you could accumulate evidence for your claim is to talk to both your own insurance company, and the insurance company of the other party in the accident, if the accident involved more than one driver. You could be able to use the statement you have given your insurance company as evidence of the occurrence, and they may even have included more evidence of your accident which you could use as part of your claim.
One of the most important types of evidence for car accident claims in Bradford is eyewitness testimony – if your accident occurred when there were other people around to witness it, this person could provide this information as a testimony of their perspective on how the accident played out, and who may have been responsible for it.
