How to make a successful compensation claim in West Dorset
As one of the country’s leading injury law firms, we know how to set about making a successful claim for personal injury compensation! This short article outlines what you should and shouldn’t do when you claim.
Making the best of your claim
When you come to talk to a lawyer about your claim it is vital that you give them as much information as possible about your ordeal, so it is a good idea to write an account of your accident. Writing things down will help you remember all those details, and get everything in the right order so you can give your lawyer a clear overview of what happened.
Even if you were physically able to, taking photographs at the time of your accident was probably the last thing on your mind. But if you still have visible injuries then take photos of them now, better late than never!
Wait until you are absolutely certain that you are better before you claim. You can only claim compensation once so you need to be sure that you know the full impact that your accident has had on your life, so that you get all of the money you are entitled to. You have three years from the date of your accident in which to start legal proceedings – if those three years are almost up and you still aren’t better please call us for further advice.
It is also a good idea to report your accident to any relevant authority, if applicable. This is not only for the sake of your claim, but for the future safety of others – informing your local council that you broke your leg falling over uneven paving, for example, should get that paving fixed. If you suspect that a law has been broken you should always inform the police.
Getting your money
When claiming compensation it is also important to choose expert claim lawyers in West Dorset; in order to maximise your chances of making a successful claim you need a lawyer who specialises in personal injury law!
Please note that you do not have to claim through a law firm recommended by an insurance company. It is entirely your choice who you claim with.
