If you’ve been unfortunate enough to suffer any type of Ripon accident injury as a result of an accident that was not your fault and are looking to take action against the party that caused it with the aid of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury solicitor, you’re going to need to make sure that you’ve gathered a decent body of evidence if you’re going to stand as good a chance of winning your case and walking away with the maximum amount of compensation possible for your circumstances.
Personal injury solicitors and Ripon accident injury
As an absolute bare minimum, you’re going to need to have some form of medical evidence that confirms you suffered the injuries you claim to have sustained if your Ripon accident injury case is going to stand any chance of a successful outcome. It doesn’t matter where you sought medical attention, be it from your family GP, and accident and emergency unit or a private clinic, you will need a medical professional’s notes to validate any claim. If you do not have this, it will be most unlikely that any reputable 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury practice worth its salt will even entertain taking your case on.
If anybody witnessed what happened to you, get their contact details. Your solicitor might be able to use any statement they can provide as evidence to support your case. The same can be said for any photographic or video evidence relating to the accident that was not your fault that you can get your hands on.
A film or photograph of the aftermath of the incident that led to you being injured could be useful, but footage of the accident itself could really make the difference if it proves beyond doubt that you had nothing to do with the cause of the accident that caused your injuries.
Retain any packaging or proof of purchase if your injury relates to a faulty product, and keep your bill if you want to make a claim after coming down with a dose of food poisoning after eating out at a restaurant. Fundamentally, the more evidence you have on your side, the greater the chances your 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury will have of coming up trumps with a decent compensation pay-out for you.
