Making a claim for compensation
When you or a loved one suffers an injury or is hurt is some way, it can be a difficult time. In many cases, urgent medical care may be needed and some injuries will require on-going treatment which can affect your daily life.
Although your treatment will depend on the type of injury you suffered and the severity of your injury, it’s likely that it will take some time to recover from the shock as well. When you’ve suffered an injury, your first priority must be to ensure that you, and anyone else involved, obtains the appropriate medical care as soon as possible.
Whilst you may be able to visit your local doctor for treatment, more serious cases might require treatment from a paramedic or hospital. Once you begin to recover, however, you may question whether or not you’ll be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
If your injuries weren’t too severe, you may have even been able to collect evidence at the scene of the injury which could help your claim. If, for example, you were hurt in a road traffic accident, you may have photographed the vehicles which could show how the incident occurred and who was to blame.
If the incident was more serious, it’s unlikely that you will have been able to collect any evidence at the scene but don’t worry, an injury solicitor in Sidmouth will be able to help you obtain all the information you need if you to decide to make a compensation claim.
