Having an accident
Nobody ever plans to have an accident, if they did, it wouldn’t really be an accident. As a result it is difficult to know how you are likely to react if you are involved in an accident. It is easy to say, outside of the moment, that you would be able to remain calm and to think clearly and decisively, but that is not always the case.
The problem is, by not acting in a calm and sensible manner you could ultimately be jeopardising your ability to make a Newham, no win no fee claim for compensation should you decide to do so later.
Making a Newham no win no fee claim
In order to make a Newham, no win no fee claim for compensation you will need to be able to provide enough evidence that you are entitled to make such a claim. Generally speaking your Newham, no win no fee solicitors will be able to assist you with this. However, if the evidence simply does not exist because you were unable to provide or secure it at the time of the accident then there is likely to be nothing that your solicitors can do to assist you.
For example, no matter where your accident has occurred or who was responsible for it, you should report the matter to someone in authority. If your accident has happened at work this could be your boss, the head of Health and Safety or simply the First Aider on site. The accident should then be recorded and a record kept of precisely what happened. The same is true if your accident happened in a public place managed by someone else.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident then you may find that reporting the incident to the police is all you need to do. Any record of the accident and details of what happened will be of huge benefit to your Newham, no win no fee solicitors as they pursue your claim.
Equally medical records are vitally important for securing you Newham, no win no fee compensation. Your medical records will show that you were injured in the manner in which you are claiming you were. They will also show that you were not injured prior to your accident, and therefore the accident you were involved in was the cause of your injuries. This will increase your chance of securing compensation as part of your claim.
Your Newham, no win no fee solicitors will be able to gain access to your medical records (with your consent of course) and will be able to use these to provide enough evidence of your injuries. To find out how much Newham, no win no fee compensation you could be entitled to as part of your claim, and specifically with reference to the injuries you have sustained, take our 30 second test today.
