If you have been involved in a serious accident which was not your fault, you may want to make road accident claims in Oxfordshire against the person who did cause your accident, to help you to pay for medical bills and other expenses, as well as to get some closure about the accident.
One of the ways in which you can make it more likely that a compensation claim will be more successful is to have witness statements from unbiased people who saw the accident happen, and it is worthwhile you asking some witnesses at the scene if they will be happy to help you to make a claim. Here are some of the things that you should ask them.
What they saw
There is no point taking the details of a witness who didn’t actually see anything, or didn’t see enough to back up your claim. Also, if what they saw contradicts the claim that you are trying to make, then you don’t want them speaking for you in your case. Make sure that you know exactly what the witness saw before you decide to use them in your claim.
What their details are
Try to get a few personal details from them, including their name, address, phone number and email address, so that you have more than one way to reach them as and when you need to. It will help your injury lawyer a huge amount if they are able to reach your witness to ask questions as and when they need to, and you should also be able to reach them when you need so that you can get your claim started much more quickly.
