Making an injury claim in Sidcup
If you are unfortunate enough to become involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and suffer an injury, you may be able to pursue a case for injury claim compensation. Depending on the nature of the incident and the severity of your injuries, you may be able to win thousands of pounds to spend on whatever you like.
Injury claim in Sidcup – Case preparations
After you’ve been injured, there will be a few things that you’ll need to do before launching an injury claim case for compensation. If you can, gather as much evidence from the scene of the accident as possible. This may be hard if you’ve been badly injured, but could pay dividends when your case comes to court. It would be great if you get the contact details of anybody who witnesses your accident and take note of any CCTV cameras that may have caught it on film.
You’ll also need to get yourself along to your GP, or an accident and emergency department, so that your injuries can be officially recorded. It’s likely your case wouldn’t come to court for some time after your accident, so this is an important step. If you don’t have medical evidence of any injury you’ve suffered, claiming compensation could be difficult.

If you have an insurance policy that covered the costs associated with your injury, you should still want to look into taking injury claim action.
