The importance of reporting
If you have had an accident and you have suffered an injury as a result then you may be considering making an East Lindsey no win no fee injury claim. Of course, it probably isn’t something that you consider at the time, and therefore it will not be something that motivates your actions at the time of the accident.
However, the problem with this is that you may not act in a way that is conducive to making a successful East Lindsey no win no fee injury claim. What we mean by this is that in order to successfully claim compensation as a result of personal injury there are certain things that you should do, in an ideal world, to support your claim.
One of the things that you should do in order to support your East Lindsey no win no fee injury claim is to report the incident.
Who you report the incident to you very much depends on where your accident has occurred.
The work place – if you have had an accident at work then there are a number of people you could potentially report your accident to. You may report it directly to your manager or supervisor, or even the boss. You may report it to the Health & Safety Department, or the designated First Aider on your floor or building.
Whomever you report it to will need to contact the local medical professionals to ensure that you receive the proper care and attention, but they will also need to record the incident in the work’s Accident Report Book. This is designed to keep a detailed record of all accidents and injuries that occur in the work place. You will be asked to check that you agree with the details of what happened, and you will need to sign it. This book will form part of the evidence that your solicitor will use in your East Lindsey no win no fee injury claim.
Public places – the same process is true for accidents that have occurred in public places. Contact the manager, owner or another member of staff to advise them of the incident and what has occurred. They can then make safe the area, hopefully prevent another incident occurring, and again make a record of your accident and injuries. When the time comes to make an East Lindsey no win no fee claim against those responsible you will have a documented record of what happened.
In the home – if you have been injured at home then you may be able to make a claim, depending on the circumstances. If you live in rented accommodation and have been injured as a result of a fault with the property or fittings, report the incident to your landlord.
