If you’ve suffered an injury or been hurt in an unexpected accident, you may be looking for injury solicitors in order to make a claim for compensation. However, before starting your claim, you may want to find out more about what the claims process involves and what to expect.
Before an injury solicitor can help you make a claim, you’ll need to show that your injuries weren’t caused by someone or something else. Providing you can show that the injuries weren’t your fault, it’s likely that an injury solicitor will be able to help and you’ll be able to make a compensation claim.
Of course, to increase your chances of success it’s important to keep as much evidence for claiming in Stirling as possible. The more evidence you have, the easier it will be to show that the person or company you’re claiming against did cause your injuries. Although it isn’t always possible, some claimants are actually able to take photographs of their injuries or the incident soon after it happened.
If, for example, you were involved in a road traffic accident, you could take a photograph of the position of the cars after the incident which may show who was at fault. Similarly, if you were hurt because of a defective or faulty product, you could take a photograph of the item to highlight the defect.
Whilst many of us don’t carry around a digital camera, it’s still likely that you’ll have access to a camera if an injury does occur. Most mobile phones now have cameras built in so it’s likely that you, or a witness, will be able to take a photograph should you need to, and these can be used as evidence for claiming in Stirling.
Don’t worry if it hasn’t been possible to collect any photographic evidence though as it’s likely that an injury solicitor will still be able to help you make a compensation claim. Once your claim has been accepted, an injury solicitor will be able to advise you how to obtain the relevant evidence and what’s needed in order to fully process your claim.
