The simple fact of the matter is that making a claim for compensation following any accident is a legal process. As such there must be proof that the accident occurred, that the injury occurred and therefore that compensation is due. There must also be proof that the other party i.e. the individual against whom you are making a claim is actually responsible.
There is probably going to be enough evidence to prove that your accident occurred. In the case of a car accident there is likely to be a police report and your insurance provider will no doubt have been contacted shortly afterwards. There is also likely to be physical damage to your car. This is unlikely to be disputed.
However, when it comes to the personal injury element – the thing that you are going to claim for, the only proof you are likely to have is your medical records. While some injuries may take time to heal, and may even leave a physical mark or scar, it is still your word against someone else’s that this particular accident caused those injuries. Your medical records will show when you sought attention for the injuries, and what the outcome of that advice was.
Your medical records will also be used to determine the amount of compensation that you could be entitled to. It will take in to account the impact your injuries have had on you and any longer term impacts that you may go on to experience. We are here for you when you need help with a workplace accident in Shotton.
