If you are thinking of starting a personal injury claim after a public transport accident in Byfleet, there is some evidence that you will need to get your claim off the ground and make it a success. Here we look at some of the evidence that would be useful for your claim.
Evidence for your public transport accident in Byfleet claim
Start by thinking about evidence that will prove your injury. You need the help of a medical professional for this. You must visit a doctor soon after the accident if you have not already been taken to an Accident and Emergency Department. Your doctor will make notes about your injury and this will be used in your personal injury claim.
Now have a think about the evidence that you will need to show that the accident in which you were hurt was not your fault. This should be very easy if you were a passenger at the time of the public transport accident in Byfleet because passengers rarely cause accidents. The person who caused the accident could be the driver of the bus, train or tram. They may have driven recklessly or may have lost concentration.
Public transport accidents can also be the fault of the public transport operator. They may have failed to recruit and train staff appropriately or they may have failed to carry out correct maintenance procedures. You could use photographs, CCTV footage or witness statements to support your case. If you collect the witness contact details we will do the rest.
