Do’s and don’ts of personal injury claims
- DO stay at the scene of the accident for as long as necessary, if possible. Of course, it’s understandable that your first instinct is to leave as soon as possible, however you should take a little time to cover your bases before you leave. Have a chat with the person who caused the accident about what happened; take their name, details, contact number and the make, model and registration number of their car. If they have their insurance details about their person, make a note of those too.
- DON’T rush into choosing a personal injury lawyer in Bridge of Orchy. Remember, you’re no longer reliant on just the phone book for a recommendation; the Internet has opened up a whole new world of options. For example, Accident Advice Helpline has a 30-second online test that enables potential clients to not only self-assess their chances of winning compensation, but also provides an estimate of how much a payout is likely to be worth. We’re also one of the largest law firms in the country, with all the advantages that go with it; a helpline and a commitment to excellence in everything that we do.
- DO keep a note of any and all medical attention that you have required as a direct result of the accident. If you have needed test, scans or X-rays, write them down. Make note of appointment dates, medications prescribed and doctors consulted. This all helps provide evidence in support of your case.
- DON’T go into the claims process expecting guarantees. While Accident Advice Helpline will of course do our utmost to ensure your claim is successful, we cannot guarantee how much money you may receive or how long the process will take. After all, each case is unique.
