If you want to not only make successful road accident claims in Southwark but also get the amount of compensation that you are entitled to, you need to prove that the accident was as serious as you are claiming that it was, as well as that the other party was at fault.
Even if you can prove easily that the other party caused the accident, it is not as easy to prove that you deserve the amount of compensation that you are asking for. Here are some ways for you to prove the seriousness of your injuries, in order to get the compensation that you deserve.
Most people know to take photographs of the damage to their vehicle at the scene of the accident, so that they can more easily make compensation and insurance claims. However, if you also take photographs of your injuries these can work as a great form of evidence for making your claim. Take photographs there and then if you can, but also take photographs as your injuries progress and heal, to show the damage over time.
See your doctor regularly
Your doctor will be able to make a full diagnosis of your condition immediately after the accident, and provide you with a medical certificate which allows you to take time off work and will also work as evidence in your compensation claim.
However, your doctor can prove a valuable asset throughout your claim as long as you keep going back for follow up appointments, as they can track the progress of your injuries and this really fleshes out your claim and gives an expert opinion for the court to look at.
