    There are four key stages in any personal injury lawyer case. They are the most important stages of your whole claim and this applies if your injury was suffered during a road traffic accident, during an accident at work or during a slip, trip or fall in a public place. If these stages are carried out correctly and in the right order you will stand a much better chance of winning your case and of getting a high level of compensation.

    Stage one – collecting information at the scene

    The importance of collecting information at the scene of an accident cannot be stressed enough. During the handling of your personal injury claim you will need to prove that the accident was the fault of someone else.

    Evidence from the scene of the accident is often crucial in proving this point. There are several types of evidence. Your account of what happened will be one type of evidence so it is a good idea to jot down a few notes as soon as you are able to. Photographs and sketches can also be particularly helpful and most of us have a mobile phone that can take photographs with us wherever we go. Witness statements are a further very useful form of evidence as they can confirm your account of what happened.

    It is vital, therefore, to collect the names and contact details of the accident witnesses at the scene. If you are very badly injured you may be able to ask someone else at the scene to do this for you.

    Stage two – selecting a legal firm

    Your level of compensation will be influenced by three main factors and they are:

    • The severity and location of your injury/injuries
    • The amount of money that you have lost because you are injured
    • The negotiating skills of your personal injury lawyer

    When it comes to making a compensation claim your first thought may be to seek the help of a local expert lawyer in Scole. However, in many circumstances you are better off using the services of a national provider like Accident Advice Helpline.

    Stage three of a personal injury lawyer Scole case – providing information

    As your claim processes you will be asked to provide some further information about your accident and about your injuries. You will also be asked to provide an itemised list of all the money that you have lost because you are injured. At this key stage of a personal injury claim it is a good idea to keep a file that contains all of your wage slips, receipts, photographs, documents etc. This means that you can quickly lay your hands on what you need when you are asked for it. It will prevent there being any delays in your case because you have lost some vital documents.
