Have you been Hurt in a car crash in Stockport?
If you have been hurt in a car crash in Stockport in an accident that you did not cause, then you could be entitled to seek compensation by way of launching a claim for compensation.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have the necessary skills and experience to help you get the best possible outcome for your road accident claims in Stockport, and get the most amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
However, it is not just down to your solicitor to make sure that the compensation you get is the most that is due – there are certain things that you can do as well.
Keep accurate records
One of the best things you can do is keep accurate records of any money you have had to pay out as a direct result of your accident. If you keep records, and the associated receipts then this will serve as proof for the payments you have made and make it easier to reclaim these back as part of your compensation claim.
Your solicitor will be able to go through all the things that you can legitimately claim back as part of the process, so keep everything and seek advice.
Ask for evidence
Another thing you can do to support your claim for being hurt in a car crash in Stockport, is to ask other people to provide evidence that can back you up. This can mean speaking to people who might have witnessed the accident who are in a position to be able to collaborate your story.
You can also ask your employer to provide a letter confirming how much income you may have missed out on as a result of taking time off from work. Such losses can also be included as part of your claim so it is always worth including them to ensure you get the most that is due.
Seek medical attention
It is vital that you seek medical attention shortly after your accident, but you should continue to do so in the weeks or months following if necessary. There is no point in putting up with long term pain and not telling your GP or specialist – they should be aware of it to help you with your recovery.
Your solicitor will do all they can to get you the compensation you deserve.
