    When you make a claim for a personal injury, there are a few things of which you ought to be aware. The most important is that the onus of proof is on your shoulders, so before you try to find a personal injury lawyer in Bethnal Green it is critically important that you have as much evidence and information supporting your case as possible.

    Proof is crucial

    In criminal law, you are innocent until proven guilty. In much the same way, you will have to prove to the court not only that the accident was not your fault, but also that it was down to a mistake made by the defendant.

    That mistake could be a specific action — for example, the defendant may have caused a car crash. Or, it could be something that they didn’t do — for example, if the defendant is your employer and they allowed the office to get into such a condition that it was not safe in which to work and contributed to your accident.

    In addition, you will also have to show that the accident has had a measurable effect on your quality of life. This could be reduced mobility, health problems or loss of earnings.

    Getting information

    If you call us up here at Accident Advice Helpline, one of the things we’ll do is give you an idea about what pieces of evidence would be particularly useful in your case.

    If you’ve been involved in a car accident, for example, getting the contact details of any witnesses could be very important, as well as any photographic or video evidence. If you’ve been injured on council property, then it is also a good idea to get pictures of the scene at the time of the accident, as the area can change significantly.

    Once you’ve got the contact details of witnesses, you should pass these onto your legal team and they will get in touch for you. Their witness statements could very well prove the difference between winning and losing your case.

    Finding a personal injury lawyer in Bethnal Green

    It is true that many personal injury cases never make it to court. Indeed, the vast majority of cases on which we work normally end up in a settlement. Most insurance companies do not want to go through the expense of a long court case if they think there is a good chance they are going to lose.

    However, if you do need to go to court then this evidence, together with the skills of the personal injury lawyer in Bethnal Green who handles your case, will be important in determining whether you are successful in your claim for compensation or not.

    So, to find a personal injury lawyer in Bethnal Green, come and talk to us. We have a team of people available on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
