    Making a claim for compensation in Clackmannanshire  – what you need to know

    When it comes to making a claim for compensation in Clackmannanshire there is some information that you may find useful. Even if you have not already been in an accident and you are not thinking of making a claim for compensation, this information can prove useful to you just in case the worst were to ever happen.

    Seek medical attention

    It may seem like a logical thing to suggest if you have been in an accident, but it is important that you seek medical attention and get treatment for any injuries if necessary. When it comes to making a claim for compensation in Clackmannanshire, failure to seek medical advice following an injury can almost immediately throw a claim out. A third party’s legal representatives are likely to be able to successfully argue that if your injury was not serious enough for you to seek medical attention immediately following the accident, or any time in the reasonable period following the accident, then it is not serious enough to warrant compensation.

    In some instances you may not feel the effects of an injury for some time following an accident. For example whiplash tends to manifest itself around 6-12 hours after the accidents, and in a lot of cases you don’t notice it until the next day.

    Even if you continue to feel OK and able to cope with any pain or discomfort it is always wise to get a check-up to make sure that there is nothing more serious. What can be self-diagnosed as whiplash can turn out to be a much more serious neck or back injury.

    Report it

    When you have an accident in a public place, or on the roads, it is important that you report the accident to the necessary authorities. It may be that you have an accident in a shop so make sure you report it to the manager. They will then log the accident in their own Accident Report Book. Your personal injury claims solicitor will be able to access this and use it as evidence that an accident occurred. Make sure when you sign the reporting page that you are happy with the information contained. Where possible it can be useful to obtain a photocopy for your own records.
