What do you need to do after sustaining injuries in a car crash in Christchurch?
It is not possible for everyone who has been injured in a car crash to claim personal injury compensation after the accident. Claiming after a car crash in Christchurch isn’t as easy a process as some would have you believe, or as some would make it out to be. Firstly, there is a 3 year time limit on such claims (unless you were a child at the time of the crash). Also you must be able to prove the following with evidence:
- You were injured in the car crash and those injuries are impacting you in some way
- Another person or organisation caused the accident in which you were hurt – it was not your own fault
- You received medical attention from a doctor check to check out your injuries
Once you have this evidence you will feel much more prepared, and your case will be able to move along much more swiftly.
Medical evidence and claiming after a car crash in Christchurch
Claimants often do not understand the importance of visiting a medical professional after a car crash. They often wish to get compensated for their losses, and assume that going to a medical professional won’t really help their claims in any way.
However, most firms, Accident Advice Helpline included, advises claimants to visit a medical professional very soon after the car crash. This is because a medical professional can review your injuries, carry out tests to see what treatment you need and prescribe medication such as painkillers.
We may ask you to attend another medical appointment as part of your claim. During this appointment, a specialist doctor will prepare a medical assessment report about your injuries. This is a legal document that can be used as evidence. However, don’t worry about this at all because we will arrange it all for you.
