When it comes to making successful Newark and Sherwood personal injury claims it is important that you receive the best when it comes to legal advice and support.

However, many people are unaware of the sort of evidence that is needed when it comes to making Newark and Sherwood personal injury claims. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we decided we would provide you with a brief list of some of the most important things you should take into consideration. Hopefully, these will help you not only win your case, but receive the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
Record of the accident
When it comes to making Newark and Sherwood personal injury claims it is essential that there is some form of record of the accident having taken place. If you had a road traffic accident then it is logical to assume that the Police have been called – especially if someone has been injured. At the very least, your insurance provider will have received a phone call informing them an accident has taken place, and this can constitute the necessary evidence that an accident has occurred.
If you have had an accident either at work or in a public place you should ensure that you complete a page in the premises Accident Report Book. All premises are legally obliged to have such a book and complete it whenever an accident occurs. When completing details of your accident make sure you are happy with the description provided of events. If you are not happy, do not sign it until you are. If possible, request a copy of your specific page for your own records.
It is important, not just for your own health and wellbeing, that you seek medical attention as soon as possible after your accident. When it comes to making Newark and Sherwood personal injury claims your medical records will be examined by the third party accused of being liable for the accident. Your records will provide evidence of your injury, and the treatment you have received.
A personal injury claims solicitor will arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert who will determine the impact your injuries have had on your day to day life. This will help determine the amount of compensation you may receive. Take our 30-second test today to find out how much you can hope to receive based on your individual injuries.
