Injury solicitors in East Cowes
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault and think you might have a claim for personal injury compensation, you’re going to need to make sure you have a certain amount of evidence in place if a good 100% no win, no fee injury solicitors in East Cowes is going to have a decent chance of winning your case. Without this, you may struggle to win a pay-out.
Evidence you’ll need to launch a claim with an injury solicitor in East Cowes
Firstly, and most importantly, you’re going to need official medical evidence of the injuries you suffered. You’ll need to have sought medical attention in the immediate aftermath of your accident to get this recorded. If you didn’t require medical attention after the incident, it might be unlikely that an injury solicitor in East Cowes will be able to take your case on. If you’ve recently been involved in an accident that was not your fault that resulted in you suffering an injured and have not sought medical attention, you would be well advised to visit a GP’s surgery or accident and emergency department as soon as you can.
Apart from making sure you have the evidence you need to launch a personal injury case, doing so will make sure that you haven’t suffered any internal injuries that you might not have noticed. You may feel fine after an accident such as a car crash, but may have suffered an internal injury that could result in serious complications.
Your injury solicitors in East Cowes will also find it useful if you have the contact details of anybody who might have witnessed what happened to you. These people might be able to give evidence on your behalf when your case comes to court. If you’ve been badly hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you may not be in any fit state to start taking down people’s details, but if you can, ask somebody you are with to do so on your behalf.
Photographic evidence of the scene where your accident occurred might also be useful. Again, if you are in no fit state to record this you can ask somebody else to. If you’ve been injured by a defective product or have contracted food poisoning from an item you purchased from a supermarket, retain the offending item if possible, along with your proof of purchase.
