We dispel myths about claiming in Newtown
In order to be able to make a claim for compensation there are a few things that you ought to do first. So, if you have been involved in a public transport accident in Newtown then here is some general advice you ought to follow to make sure that you are eligible to claim.
The first thing is make sure you report the incident to someone in charge. If you are on a bus at the time of the accident, report it to the bus driver. If you are at a bus station then report it to one of the stewards or someone in the ticket office.
This is vitally important, so no matter what you do ensure that someone has been informed. Whoever you report your accident to will be obligated to ensure that an Accident Report Book entry is completed. This will make sure that the relevant information regarding your accident has been logged, namely what happened, why, where, when and what the outcome was.
While you may not necessarily feel like taking photographs, it is always advisable to do so if it is at all possible of the scene. This will help provide evidence of what the area looked like when the accident occurred and will help to prove where liability lies. It may be that there was a wet patch which had not been suitably cleaned up. Of course, this can quickly be cleared away after the accident and therefore there will be no proof.
You will then be able to access the medical support and advice you need, either on scene or at a later date in hospital or at your local GP’s surgery. They will also make a log of the injuries you have sustained and the treatment you require. Your solicitor can use this as evidence of what you should be entitled to claim compensation wise.
