If you have been injured in an accident, no matter where it occurred, you might want to make a compensation claim in West Walsall. In order for your claim to be successful, there are various things you need to prove and a certain amount of information that you need to be able to provide.
Date and Location
It may seem pretty obvious, but if you want to make a compensation claim in West Walsall then you will need to be able to tell your solicitor precisely when the accident which caused your injuries occurred. They will need to know the precise date, and if possible a rough time. This will help in establishing the validity of your claims with regard to the accident reporting you may have had to do if the accident occurred in a public place.
Location is also exceptionally important. If you do not know the precise address at the time, then you will need to find out what this is so that you can let you solicitor know.
As well as any physical evidence that you can provide in terms of your actual injuries, your compensation claim in West Walsall is likely to be more successful if you can provide documentary proof of your accident. For example, if you have been injured in a public place then you might have been asked to complete a page in the accident report book. Ask to take a copy of this away with you so that you have a copy for your own records that you can forward onto your solicitor.
Other documentary evidence will include your own medical records. If you have been injured in an accident, and this is why you are trying to make a compensation claim in West Walsall, then you will want to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of your injuries, this may be in the form of a paramedic followed by a trip to accident and emergency, or you might just want to visit your own GP or walk-in centre as soon as possible following the accident.
When you start your compensation claim in West Walsall, you will be asked to grant certain people access to your medical records. This will usually be an independent medical professional, who will assess the extent of your injuries and put forward their recommendations in terms of your prognosis and the impact your injuries have had on your life, and therefore affect the amount of financial compensation you will be awarded.
