    Claiming compensation in Wolverhampton

    Where there’s blame, there’s a claim was an advertising slogan used many years ago by a now defunct personal injury management company. But it is still sometimes quoted today, as more than being an advertising slogan, it is actually true if a couple of other rules apply. If someone else was to blame for your accident and your injuries needed medical treatment, as long as the accident happened no more than three years ago, claiming compensation in Wolverhampton is possible.

    Blaming someone for your accident and claiming compensation in Wolverhampton

    The first thing you have to be sure of is that someone else was to blame for your accident. In some situations, it is very clear who was at fault, some people will even admit they were to blame. But there are many others that are not so clear-cut, and then you have to prove your claim. This can only be done by producing as much evidence as possible, such things as:

    • If you are able to take photos of the accident scene, these could prove useful. Most mobile phones have a camera facility, which is probably the easiest way to achieve these.
    • If there were any witnesses to the accident, see if they are prepared to make a statement and if they are take their contact details.
    • Depending what type of accident you were involved in, either the police, Health and Safety Executive, Foods Standards Agency, Trading Standards Officers or some other official body could be involved. They all have to produce reports about the accident and these can be vital when you are claiming compensation  in Wolverhampton.
    • Medical reports to prove your injuries will be needed, and some claimants have to attend a separate medical assessment as well.
    • If you have had to pay out extra expenses, keep the receipts to prove you have had to pay them.
    • If you have lost income because of the accident, it can be reclaimed, but you will need wage slips, confirmation from your employer, or from your accountant of the amount of the reduction.
    • Anything else you think might strengthen your personal injury claims in Wolverhampton, no matter how trivial it may seem.

    All of this information will be used to build your claim for compensation, so the more evidence you can gather, the better.
