    Compensation in Colchester

    Claiming compensation in Colchester

    Although you may not realise it, people can obtain compensation in Colchester following various different types of incidents. Accidents at work, road traffic collisions and even food poisoning can all result in compensation claims being made.

    One of the most common reasons to make an injury claim, however, is a slip, trip or fall. Whilst most falls aren’t too serious, they can result in significant injuries from time to time. In fact, a fall could be fatal in some cases, such as a fall from height.

    If you’ve been hurt because of a slip, trip or fall which wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to receive compensation in Colchester. Of course, you will need to prove who was responsible for your injuries in order to be able to obtain compensation from them.

    Using evidence to support your claim

    Immediately following the incident, you may not feel able to obtain any evidence and this is completely understandable. If you were able to take photographs at the scene of the accident, these could be helpful when making your claim but your injuries may have prevented you from doing this.

    Similarly, if you were able to collect the contact details of any witnesses, they may be able to provide a statement at a later date.

    If you were too badly injured to collect evidence or the shock of the incident meant that you didn’t think to take any photos, there’s no need to worry. Often, you can collect evidence at a later date so you could still obtain compensation in Colchester.

    Your medical records alone can be used as evidence when you make a personal injury claim, as they’ll list the type of harm you suffered and the treatment you received.
