Making a compensation claim after road traffic accidents in Dacorum is as easy as you can make it. If you put the preparation into your claim then you should find that you are able to make it more quickly, more easily and make it more likely to be successful as well. Here are some of the things that you can do in the days, weeks and months following your accident, which will help you to make a successful claim for compensation against the person that caused your accident and injuries.
Write everything down
From the first moments after your accident, make an effort to write down everything which happens which relates to your accident and claim, so that you have the information you need to put together the strongest possible case for compensation. Write down things like what happened in the accident as far as you can remember it, as well as details such as personal and registration details for the other driver. It is good to have notes to refer to as time can dull your memory.
See your doctor regularly
Your doctor is one of your key sources of evidence, as they will write you out medical assessments which prove the condition you were in immediately following your accident, as well as your condition in the weeks and months which follow. If you stop seeing your doctor then you lose this form of evidence, so make sure you attend all of your follow up appointments.
Don’t be afraid to get the police involved
A police investigation may work out who is at fault for the road traffic accident well before an injury lawyer would, so getting the police involved if you are sure that the other party was at fault for your accident is a great way to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve sooner rather than later.
