Personal injury compensation and injury statistics
Personal injury compensation claims can be supported by injury statistics, if a lot of people have been hurt in a certain way then it starts to establish that the activity is one that might be a risk. Or that a person or organisation is negligent and fair amounts of people are being injured as a result of the activity.
If you are going to make a claim then you need to prove that the other person was responsible for your injury. Evidence is key to building a strong claim.
- Make a detailed description of what has happened and the surroundings.
- Take photographs, lots of good clear images will help make a case. Especially if your injury has come about as a result of negligence on the part of an organisation that should have supplied a particular work surface for a sports match for example then repairs might be made at a later date. Then when you get making your claim for compensation the evidence might be lost.
- Take a note of all the contact details of any witnesses and other people who have suffered in a similar way.
