If you have had an accident whilst you were working in your driving job, and feel that your employer was in some way to blame, you may be able to make road accident claims in Epsom and Ewell against them. The only way that you can make a successful compensation claim against your employer is if you have plenty of evidence to prove your claim, so here are some ways that you can gather evidence to help your compensation claim to be successful.
Keep copies of all communication
If you have made complaints to your employer in the past about working long hours or the maintenance of your vehicle, try to keep copies of these dated and in a file. This means that when you do want to make a compensation claim you can prove that your employer was aware of the problem. Try to keep all correspondence from your employer as well as your own emails or letters, to prove that the correspondence was received.
Keep copies of your work hours
If you are trying to claim compensation because you were working long hours which caused you to become too tired to drive effectively, you should keep copies of your work schedule. This will prove that your shift patterns were too long and could easily have caused you to be distracted.
Speak to your doctor
Your doctor can provide you with a medical assessment which proves your injuries and can also mention how your doctor feels your injuries came about. This helps you to prove the impact that the accident has had on your life and will enable you to get as much compensation as you deserve.
