If you decide that you want to make car accident injury claims in Cheltenham, there are lots of things you can do to make the process easier. You can find an experienced injury lawyer who will work on your behalf on your claim and you could gather plenty of evidence to prove that the other person was at fault for the accident, but there will still be other factors which will affect how likely it is that your claim will be successful. Here are some of these factors so that you can watch out for them.
Whether you sought medical attention
You cannot prove that your injuries were caused by your accident, nor that they were serious enough to entitle you to make a claim, if you didn’t go to the hospital or at least visit your doctor. If you did go to hospital or see a doctor, but not for a long time after the accident, this may also affect your claim.
Police report and witness statements
In compensation cases it is very rarely your word against the other persons. The police report and witness statements may work for or against you in getting your claim processed successfully, but either way are very valuable pieces of evidence.
Things you said to witnesses or the other driver
At the scene of the accident you must be very careful to either stay quiet or avoid saying anything which could work against you if you make a claim for compensation later on. Try to avoid taking the blame for the accident, or making any promises.
Any charges or citations relating to the accident
If yourself or the other driver has been charged with drink driving or dangerous driving relating to the accident, this will affect the outcome of your compensation claim, either in your favour or in the favour of the other driver.
