What to do after an accident
If you have been injured in an accident then there is a high chance that the first thing you are going to need to do is seek medical attention. This is bar far the most sensible thing you should do following any accident as, although you may feel completely fine, there is a chance you are injured in a way you are unaware of.
Seeking medical attention swiftly can ensure that you are properly examined and that you can receive the best advice on what to look out for should you start to experience any symptoms of injury later on.
Seeking medical attention also helps the validity of your case when you come to making a ‘no win, no fee*’ Ruthin claim.
The importance of medical evidence
Imagine a situation in which someone decides to seek compensation as part of a v Ruthin claim. They contact Accident Advice Helpline and advise that they suffered a personal injury after falling down a flight of stairs in a restaurant.
One of the first things the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline would do as part of a new claim is look at the medical records of the person seeking compensation. If there is no record of the injuries which the claimant says they suffered, or it would be logical for someone to suffer following such an incident, then it is going to be impossible to make a claim for compensation.
Your medical records will show that you have injured yourself in the way described, and will also provide details of the treatment you have received as a result of these injuries. This will form the basis for your ‘no win, no fee*’ Ruthin claim and help secure your compensation.
As your ‘no win, no fee*’ Ruthin claim progresses, your solicitor will arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert. This individual will be able to look at your records, as well as speak to you directly, about the injuries you have sustained. They will be able to take into account the pain and suffering you experienced at the time of the accident and the impact it has had on you since.
This will help inform how much compensation your ‘no win, no fee*’ Ruthin claim is likely to be worth to you should it be a success. You can also take our 30 second test to find out how much this might be based solely on the injuries sustained.
