You’ll typically have up to three years to launch a case against any organisation or individual that has caused you to be hurt, so you’ll have plenty of time to make sure your house is in order.
Before getting in touch with injury solicitors even enters your mind, the first thing you’ll need to do after suffering an injury in an accident that was not your fault will be to get your injuries looked at by a qualified medical professional. Either at a GP’s surgery, an NHS walk-in centre or at an accident and emergency department. As well as making sure you’re not more badly injured than you thought, your injury solicitors will need medical evidence of your injuries if they’re going to successfully fight your corner in a court of law.
If you’ve been involved in an accident where you think a law may have been broken, call the police. If you were involved in a road traffic accident and suspect the other driver was over the drink/drive limit, or if you were attacked by a dog that you suspect may have been an illegal breed, you should contact the authorities immediately. As well as providing extra evidence for your case, doing so could go some way to ensuring that another person does not suffer the same fate as you.
Had an accident while you were at work? Then you’ll need to make sure the incident is properly logged by your employer. You might also like to contact your union rep if you’re the member of a trade movement, or notify the Health and Safety Executive if it is a serious accident.
