If you have been involved in a serious accident that was caused by another person, one of the things you can do as part of the healing process is to make Nottingham car accident claims against this person.
You will only be able to sue for compensation if you can prove that the other person in an accident was at fault, and you will have to do this through official means such as police reports and medical assessments.
However, if you do have this information and evidence then you may well have a very good case for compensation, and will find the claims process very helpful to you. Here are some tips for making a claim.
- Write everything down. As soon as you get home after an accident, you should sit down and write down everything that happened as you remember it, leaving no detail out. The more you can remember, the more realistic your account will be and the more likely it is to be believed. This will also help you to avoid missing certain details out as time goes on.
- Find a good injury lawyer. A good injury lawyer could make all the difference to your claim, as they will be able to make the claim on your behalf, and put together a case using their knowledge of the law and what is likely to make your claim more successful.
- Keep at it. Make sure that you are chasing up any people who are involved in your case to make sure that it is always moving forward. You should remember that if a claim is still continuing after three years have passed since the accident, it may be thrown out of court.
- Get the police report. The police report is there to prove what the police discovered with their investigation. This can be used as proof that what you say happened actually happened. There are other official bodies that make accident reports in differing accidents, and you are entitled to a copy of any reports if you were involved in an accident.
