Accidents happen; this much we all know. We can all be careless at times and take our eye off the ball, resulting us landing face down in, usually, the most public environment. As much as we blame ourselves for these accidents, this is not always the case. In many instances, accidents happen because of someone else’s negligence. If this is the case and you end up being injured, you may be able to apply for a no win no fee* compensation in St Edmundsbury. As part of your claim, there are some standard types of evidence you may need. The more evidence you have, the better your chance of compensation.
No matter what type of accident you are involved in, you should always seek medical assistance.

You will be asked for medical records to prove your accident and it will substantially help your claim if you have these.
It will most likely be the last thing on your mind at the time of an accident, but photographic evidence is one of the key ways to prove the incident.
