Read on for help to claim compensation in Worthing.
The right way to claim
Get writing! The first thing you should do if you are even just thinking about claiming compensation is to write an account of your accident so that you don’t forget any of the details. Include anything you can remember, even if something seems incidental; add to this account, note down how your injury has affected your life.
You should also keep track of what your accident is costing you – paying out for physiotherapy or had to pay a child minder to do your school run because you can’t drive? Make a note and keep receipts, invoices and bank statements so that you can prove your expenses.
Report your accident; if your accident happened in a public place, complain to the council responsible for keeping that space safe. If your accident took place in a retail or business premises, complain to the owner/ head office. If your accident happened at work make sure it is reported in the accident record book, and if you know, or suspect, that a law was broken in the circumstances surrounding your accident, tell the police.
Collect evidence: This is a little trickier; in an ideal world when you had your accident you would have remembered to take photos of the accident scene and your injuries, while helpful bystanders handed you their contact details so they could provide you with a witness statement at a later date, but this probably didn’t happen! But do what you can now.
