If you’ve been injured in an accident which wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Salcombe.
Wherever and however your accident occurred, it’s natural to go through a number of feelings, from worry about how you’re going to recover from feeling utterly traumatised.
The most important thing to remember is that you’re not alone as you recover from your accident. Accident Advice Helpline can help people just like you to make a compensation claim Salcombe following any kind of accident.
In order to give yourself and your case the strongest chance of being successful there are a number of steps you should follow after any kind of accident:
1. Medical Attention
This might seem too obvious but it’s surprising how many people dust themselves down after an accident and fail to seek medical assistance – and as a result there are many undiagnosed medical conditions which remain untreated.
In addition to being able to quickly diagnose any injuries, the documents which are compiled by the Doctor or practitioner you see could serve as evidence as you make your compensation claim in Salcombe – and they could be the difference between winning or losing your case.
2. The Police
Although they might not be necessary in a smaller incident such as a trip or fall, the police do need to be present at larger accidents. Not only can they assist with managing the scene and preserving any evidence as well as gathering witness statements, but they can ensure the safety of all parties.
Just as medical documents and records can be an important element of your case, as can the statements of any witnesses. Not only can they tell a story which you may not be able to accurately recall as a result of the trauma of your accident but they may have seen the danger of someone else’s negligence which in turn led to your accident and can strengthen your case.
4. Physical Evidence
Although the aftermath of an accident is not an ideal time for you as a victim to start taking photographs or obtaining CCTV, it is these pieces of physical evidence which may add to your case. These pieces of evidence can be submitted as part of your compensation claim in Salcombe, and add further evidence to substantiate your claim that the accident was the fault of someone else.
