    How much evidence is needed to claim compensation?


    Are you wondering how much evidence is needed to claim compensation?

    We all know that suffering a personal injury from an accident can be a very disrupting experience. Not only might you be in pain and discomfort from your injuries, but there are other factors to consider, such as having to stay in hospital whilst you receive treatment.

    In some cases, this might also mean having to take time off work whilst you recover and even unfortunately, losing income. This may be particularly true if you are self-employed.

    It might also have a knock-on effect on your partner or family, who might have to look after you during your convalescence. If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and suffered a personal injury, then you might think about claiming compensation.

    But what about evidence to support your claim? How much evidence is needed to claim compensation?

    Claiming criteria

    Providing the accident was the fault of another person or organisation and it has taken place within the last three years, then you could qualify for compensation. Of course, you need to ensure that you have had your injuries confirmed by a doctor or other medical specialist.

    Without medical evidence to support your claim, you won’t have a strong case.

    If you have witnesses to support your version of events, this will strengthen your case. If the emergency services attended your accident, they will be able to provide a record of what happened.

    If you have photographs or there were cctv cameras at the scene of your accident, this will be helpful.

    If you want to claim for your expenses and loss of earnings, then you should keep a record of these and receipts will need to be provided in most cases.

    If you match these criteria, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline today to make a start on launching your compensation claim.
