Personal injury law can be complicated, but with the right advice, making a claim for serious injuries in Sunderland can be simple and stress free.
How do you make a claim?
If you are looking to file a personal injury claim, ensure that you follow these three simple steps:
- Collect the contact details of any witnesses to your accident, or ask someone else to do so on your behalf. Your lawyer will need to use these to obtain statements in support of your allegations.
- Take photographs of the scene of your accident, ensuring that you capture the hazard that caused your injury. For example, if you slipped on a spillage on the floor, take a picture of the dangerous surface.
- Visit your GP or local A&E department as soon as possible so that your injury can be documented for future reference. Even if you feel your injuries are only minor, it is still worth your time as you may develop symptoms in the hours, days or weeks following your accident. If you wish to make an accident claim, your lawyer will need to call upon these records to prove that the injury you sustained was the direct result of your accident.
Once you have returned home from the hospital, call the Accident Advice Helpline and let one of our experienced lawyers help you to make a Sunderland accident claim against the person or organisation responsible for your accident.
