Do you meet the criteria for making a claim?
In order to make a claim, your accident and injury must have occurred within the last three years. Naturally, you must be able to make a claim against a person, so you will need to prove that someone else was responsible for your accident.
You should also have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after the accident. If you waited any length of time before consulting a doctor, you may have a problem with your claim.
This is because injuries can get worse over time, so if yours were exacerbated because you did not seek medical treatment, you would only be able to claim compensation for the original injury.
What evidence can be used when you make a claim?
Of course, you will need to produce your medical records and doctor’s report if you make a claim. These will be used, if your claim is successful, to calculate how much compensation you could receive in terms of damages (those relating to your pain and suffering and loss of quality of life, among other things). Special damages can also be awarded to compensate you for financial losses.
If the police were at the scene of your accident and investigated its causes, their accident report would be a valuable piece of evidence as long as it cleared you from blame. It should specify exactly why your accident occurred.
Photographs can also be useful if they show the accident scene. If you fell in the street, for example, you might have taken a photograph of the offending broken paving slab. If it was subsequently repaired, before and after photographs would prove useful.
