Fantastic Legal Representation
Selecting a reputable, experienced and reliable injury lawyer who is plenty of experience in assisting with no-fault personal injury claims is crucial if you are going to stand a good chance of being awarded compensation. Each injury falls into a bracket or category which has a predetermined band of monetary compensation attached to it. Some levels of compensation can be quite broad.
Your injury lawyer will need strong grounds to petition to achieve you the higher end of the bracket. Medical notes from the hospital, GP and any other medical professionals that you have seen since the incident occurred will be invaluable to your injury lawyer and they may have a direct bearing on the level of compensation which you are awarded.
It’s easy to get muddled and jumbled up following a traumatic event, so why not keep a pain diary. A document of dates and the pain or symptoms which you were enduring will be invaluable if you are sent for an assessment with an independent medical examiner. It need not even be in a paper diary, it could be a series of text reminders on your mobile telephone.
Just make sure you keep a record of your symptoms and the pain which you suffer or indeed the tasks, hobbies or duties which your injuries or pain prevents you from carrying out. This will enable your injury lawyer to demonstrate the effect that the accident has had upon your lifestyle and the impact it has had upon your life.
