Do you need evidence to make car accident injury claims in Dunfermline?
When people are involved in a road traffic accident, they often know straightaway whether they are at fault. If the incident wasn’t your fault and it was caused by someone else, you should be able to make a compensation claim against them.
However, if they don’t admit their liability, you may assume that you won’t be able to obtain compensation. In actual fact, this isn’t the case at all. By gathering evidence relating to the incident, you could prove how the incident occurred and who caused it, thus enabling you to obtain compensation for your injuries.
What type of evidence do you need?
The evidence supporting your claim could come in many forms, such as:
If the incident is investigated, specialist road traffic officers will determine how the accident occurred. This type of report could be extremely helpful when it comes to make your claim as it could help to prove who was responsible for the incident.
If there is video footage of the incident, this can be used to determine exactly what happened prior to the accident and who is responsible for it. If you have access to this type of evidence, it could be extremely beneficial to your claim.
If other people saw the accident occur, they may be willing to give a statement which could support your claim and enable you to obtain compensation.
By taking photographs of the vehicles involved and/or your injuries, you could help provide further evidence relating to the seriousness of the incident. Sometimes, professional investigators can tell from photos alone how the incident occurred and this could then be used to determine who is responsible.
If you know that you weren’t responsible for the incident but you aren’t sure how to prove it, don’t worry. We may be able to help you to access the evidence you need in order to make your claim.
