After a slip in a public place in Sefton, it is possible for you to make a claim for compensation if you are able to work with an experienced injury lawyer and have evidence to prove that you were not at fault for your accident.
When it comes to making a claim for a slip, trip or fall, you want to have the tightest possible case against the other party so that there is very little chance of them being able to fight against you and say that the accident was not their fault. Here are some tips for making your claim successfully.
Work with a good injury lawyer
Make sure that the lawyer you choose to represent you in your case has plenty of experience with injury claims. It doesn’t matter how experienced they are and how good they are at their job if they have never handled a personal injury case before, as they won’t have the specific knowledge that you need.
Find a good lawyer either through researching them on the internet, or you can try Accident Advice Helpline.
Take immediate evidence
Take photographs of the scene there and then, as well as your injuries, and ask other people if they will be witnesses. If you go home and think about it before deciding to make a claim, when you do get onto gathering evidence you may find that there simply isn’t enough there for you to work with.
If you can get a copy of the accident report form this will also be useful, and you should ask for it there and then if possible so that you know that it is in your possession and can’t be changed or taken away from you.
