Dumbarton personal injury claims


What you need to know about Dumbarton personal injury claims

If you are thinking about making a claim for compensation it is important that you are aware of some information that could make things easier for you.

Immediately following an accident

If you have been involved in an accident and have been injured as a result, your first thought may not necessarily be on obtaining the information your Dumbarton personal injury claims solicitor is likely to need to progress with your case. However, it is vital that you obtain as much information as possible to make things easier at a later date, should you decide to make a claim.

In the first instance you should obviously seek medical attention if you need it. This is the most important thing that you can do as your health and safety is always the main priority.

Following this you should attempt to get all the contact details and information of all the people that were present at the time of the accident, including those of the person that you think might have been responsible. Anyone present who was not directly involved may be able to provide evidence and a witness statement if needed as to what happened.

If your accident occurred in a public place, or whilst at work, make sure that you complete a page in the Accident Report Book. This will provide further evidence of the accident that occurred and your Dumbarton personal injury claims solicitor can use this to help with your claim.

Where necessary and appropriate take photographs of the scene of the accident. This can be done immediately following the accident if safe to do so, or later on. In cases of accidents in public places it can also be a good idea to go back to the scene a few days later and take further photographs to see if safety improvements have been made.

What your Dumbarton personal injury claims solicitor will do

Once you have used our 30 second test to check whether or not you are able to make a claim, your Dumbarton personal injury claims solicitor will take on your case.

They will initially gather additional information about what happened and will then start to gather evidence on your behalf.

This expert will examine your injuries and see how well you are recovering and the impact they have had on your life.

Your Dumbarton personal injury claims solicitor will also discuss with you whether or not you can claim further compensation in the form of lost income or out of pocket expenses.
