Stockport has its fair share of accidents, so it also has its fair share of personal injury claims. Accidents in Stockport include road traffic accidents, accidents at work and general accidents when people are out and about. People suffer fractures, head injuries, whiplash and other injuries every day. But whatever the injuries or the causes of accidents in Stockport, thankfully, making a claim for personal injury is easy. There are just three easy steps that you have to take. Here they are.
Get medical treatment
Obviously, the first thing is to seek appropriate medical attention for the injury. In severe cases, this will be provided by a paramedic at the scene of the accident followed by treatment in an accident and emergency department.
Whiplash injuries often do not become painful until several hours after the accident. This is sometimes the day after the accident occurred, so your first visit for medical attention may therefore be a trip to the doctor or hospital the following day. You may only need one visit, or your injury may involve a stay in hospital followed by several outpatient appointments.
Keep a note of all the medical attention that you receive — it will be useful later on for your claim. Also, try to keep a record of how the accident happened so that you can recall all of the facts. Sketches and photographs can sometimes be useful as well.
When claimants are not the causes of accidents in Stockport – they can contact a claims provider
Once you feel up to it, you can contact a claims provider. This is the nest step when the claimants themselves are not the causes of accidents in Stockport, or wherever else it might be that the accidents occurred.
