Before you speak to an injury lawyer, it is worth reading through the following information to ensure that you are in the best possible position to make a successful claim.
To help your injury lawyer make a successful compensation claim on your behalf, it is vital to gather as much evidence as you can:
- Following an accident, it is important that you obtain the names and contact details of any witnesses to the accident.
- Identify who caused the accident. This might be another cyclist, a pedestrian who stepped in front of you or the driver of a motor vehicle. It is vitally important that you obtain the name and contact details of the person responsible for the accident, as it is this person against whom your injury lawyer will make the claim. If the person responsible was driving a vehicle at the time of the accident, it is imperative that you obtain their registration details. Just in case the driver provides you with false contact information, your injury lawyer will be able to trace them by checking their registration number on a motor insurer’s database.
- If it is possible and safe to do so, it is helpful to obtain photographic evidence. This is a lot easier to secure in the days of mobile phones with good quality cameras. You should take photographs of the scene of the accident, any other vehicles involved and damage to your bicycle if appropriate. If you have had an accident as a result of a pothole on an unmaintained road, take a photograph of this as well, as your injury lawyer in Crugybar will no doubt advise you that in such instances some potholes are miraculously “fixed” the day after such an accident has occurred.
- If you have been knocked off of your bicycle by a motor vehicle, you should report the incident to the police. This should be done as quickly as possible — do not allow more than five days to pass between the incident and the report being made.ble.
