Get your compensation journey underway
Being injured is a nuisance at best; at worst, it is life-changing for all the wrong reasons. This is why Accident Advice Helpline and an experienced injury solicitor in Brechin are here to help. However, there are some common factors that are frequently missed by people when preparing their compensation claim, so your injury solicitor in Brechin and our team have put together the following guide to help you:
- Should your personal injury be as a result of a road traffic accident, it is a prudent move to inform the police, including the fact that you were injured as a result – you should do this no matter how slight your injuries. You may perceive them as ‘hardly anything’ at the time, but over time you may find that they develop into personal injuries that are painful and difficult to manage.
- Likewise, with a road traffic accident, you must inform your own insurance company; failure to report it to your insurers could actually invalidate your policy.
- As we have already stated, your injury over time might develop into something more severe or serious. This is why when you contact us, we insist (as does personal injury law) that you have received medical attention for your injuries. This way, your specialist injury solicitor in Brechin can build a detailed and accurate compensation case.
- Gathering evidence is important. It may be useful, for example, to take photographs of the scene of the accident and injuries or illness if you can. Likewise, collecting contact details of any possible witnesses is important, as all of this additional information can add a significant amount of detail to your compensation case for personal injuries.
Do you need the help of an injury solicitor in Brechin and their team?
Being hurt is no laughing matter. Claiming compensation is one way of putting things right. Money will not make your pain go away or change your life back to what it was before, but what it can do is help you to recover some or all of the costs associated with your accident.
If the accident happened as a result of someone’s negligence or unsafe work practices, claiming compensation with the help of an injury solicitor in Brechin can push the need for change to the fore so that other people just like you are not hurt as a result.
The longest journeys start with one step – to take your first step on your compensation journey, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today.
