    Making a personal injury claim in Shipston-on-Stour

    When most people think about personal injury claims, things such as whiplash sustained during road traffic accidents and injuries sustained at work spring to mind, but the truth is, you can make a claim for almost any incident that results in an accident that wasn’t your fault. You may be able to launch an injury claim case for any number or reasons, whether you sustained an injury whilst out walking on a path, driving on roads or in a building of any description, be it owned by a private company or public body. You could even launch a personal injury claim if you were hurt whilst travelling on a ferry or airplane. At the end of the day, if you’ve been hurt due to somebody else’s negligence, it doesn’t really matter where the incident occurred.

    Gathering evidence for your injury claim case

    If you have an injury claim in Shipston-on-Stour that could get you a pay-out, you should be able to find a firm such as Accident Advice Helpline that will be willing to represent you on a 100% no win-no fee basis. But that doesn’t mean you’ll just be able to sit back after you’ve been hurt and let your solicitor do all the work. It’s true that, in most cases, the amount of input a claimant has into a personal injury case is extremely limited once they’ve selected a law firm to represent them. In fact, you may not even have to attend court. In most cases claimants can carry out their role in the process over the phone or perhaps attend a medical appointment.

    If your case is going to be successful, you’ll need to make sure you do things right after your accident. If possible, get the contact details of anybody who witnessed your accident. They may be able to support your case when it comes to court. If you suspect that CCTV may have captured what happened, try to find out who owns the camera that was filming when the incident occurred and try to get hold of the footage. It’s also important that you see a doctor after you’ve been injured. It could damage your chances of success if you don’t have official medical evidence to support your claim.

    Hold onto paperwork

    If your injury claim in Shipston-on-Stour relates to a purchase you made, perhaps a faulty product or food poisoning, keep your receipt. If you’ve incurred any expenses as a result of your accident, hold onto evidence of this. You may be able to claim this back from the negligent party. If you’ve had to shell out for extra medical care or have lost income through not being able to work, it’s only right that the person responsible for your accident covers this.
