    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury solicitor in Sutton-on-the-Forest

    One of the biggest fears confronting people before they decide whether or not to make a claim is the uncertain nature of the outcome. How can one be certain of securing the best result possible, and in a world in which we can’t be sure of anything, why should we commit substantial sums of money to something which might provide nothing?

    This blog will attempt to answer some of those questions and point you in the right direction for finding an injury solicitor in Sutton-on-the-Forest based who can help you with your case.

    The importance of evidence

    Of course, it is never easy to be certain how any claim for compensation might end up. In the end the final result will be down to the interpretation of the courts, but there are some things we can do to tip the balance in our favour. Almost all of these revolve around evidence.

    In a world in which arguments often come down to one person’s word against another, the courts will make their decision based on whose story they find more believable. More often than not, this will be the person whose version is backed up by the evidence.

    Take for example a car accident. How can you be certain who is right? Well, the court will look at certain things. They may have a look at CCTV footage if any exists, and they could look at pictures of the accident site, listen to experts or any witness statements.

    Alternatively, what about an accident in the workplace? You might have tripped over an obstacle which had been left in a hallway. How is anyone to be certain it was where you said it was, unless you have a photo of the hallway or witness statements from co-workers backing you up?

    Getting your story across

    It’s therefore well worth speaking to people at the scene of any accident and getting contact numbers. Take photographs of any damage and get the names and numbers of any police officers present at the scene. Always remember that you shouldn’t contact any witnesses before the case is heard; this should be done by your lawyer.
