    Making a claim for a personal injury is a matter of personal choice. A surprising number of people never make a claim, even though they may have a right to because they simply cannot face what they perceive to be a long and drawn-out process. But if you have suffered an injury that occurred through no fault of your own and want to make a claim through an injury lawyer in Corby you may well have a good choice of legal firms available to you.

    Before you start your claim there are a few things you can do to make your journey as painless as possible. One of the first things you should do is get the help of a good injury lawyer who has experience in dealing with your type of claim. This will safeguard your interests and they will be able to give you information as to what you need to provide to help them with your case.

    Witnesses: Yes or No?

    One of the first things any injury lawyer in Corby will ask you is do you have a witness to the event? Sadly many people who suffer an accident do not think of this at the time, and also many people are reluctant to come forward as a witness in support of a claim. You do not have to have a witness to pursue a claim but even the best claims company will struggle to present a strong case if there is no evidence to support your statement of events. Fortunately if you have not collected witness information at the time of the event there are alternatives that may be able to help you with your case.

    Alternatives

    CCTV footage will help support your claim if the accident happened in a public place or anywhere where security cameras have been installed. If you were involved in a motoring accident the police, by law, should have been called so there will be an incident report filed. This will give the attending officer’s opinion of the event and can also be used to enforce your claim. Sadly the other party may not be a reliable witness unless they have already admitted blame. If the accident occurred at work then it should have been recorded in the accident at work book under the guidance of health and safety regulations; the report will have been countersigned by a manager or health and safety representative: you may even have had a union representative present and these signatures will all help support your account of the event.
