Making a compensation claim in Wheathampstead
If you’ve suffered an unexpected accident or injury which wasn’t your fault, it may take some time to recover from the shock. Although claimants are often eligible to make a compensation claim in Wheathampstead following an injury, it isn’t necessarily their main priority following an accident.
If you or someone else suffers a injury, your first priority must of course be to access the appropriate medical treatment. In some instances this may involve emergency medical care and a trip to accident and emergency, whilst in other situations it may just involve a trip to your local hospital or GP.
If your injuries aren’t too severe, you may be able to start collecting evidence straight away, although you may want to wait until you’ve received medical treatment if you need it. For example, if you’re involved in a minor road traffic accident you may want to take pictures of the damaged vehicles whilst you await help, or if you trip on unstable paving stones you may be able to take a photograph of the offending paving slabs.
Although you may not carry a camera with you at all times, new technology can come in useful. Many mobile phones are also equipped with cameras, which means that it’s likely that you or someone that you’re with will have a camera to hand, should you need to take photographs as evidence.
If you’re unable to take photographs, don’t worry. You may be able to return to the area later or your compensation claim in Wheathampstead may be able to progress without them. In some instances, you may be unable to take photographs due to the severity of your injuries. In such instances, don’t worry – this won’t affect your eligibility to make a compensation claim in Wheathampstead.
