If you’ve been in a road traffic accident and suffered injuries, you might be thinking about making a compensation claim through solicitors in Clarkston.
If so, Accident Advice Helpline can help you – and it’s easy to begin the process. But first of all, what do you need to know about road accident claims?
Evidence will help your case
Solicitors in Clarkston will find it useful if you have evidence of the accident and injury since you qualify to claim in cases where another person has caused the accident. Below is a checklist of potentially useful evidence:
- Photographs of the damage to your vehicle
- Photographs of any property damage, e.g. to street furniture
- Photographs of your injuries
- Receipts for expenses, e.g. home helps, taxi journeys, prescriptions
- Records of medical treatment for your injuries
- Witness statements (make sure you get their contact details at the scene)
The above details are especially important if the other driver is uninsured, or leaves the scene and cannot be traced! Whilst we are on that subject, be sure to get the other driver’s name, address and insurer, too.
Making a claim
The next thing to think about – or, at least, when you have arrived back home – is making a claim for compensation.
The coming weeks, maybe even months, are going to be unusual. You may have to attend hospital or the GP’s surgery regularly; you may also be off work, which could lead to a loss of wages. On top of this, you may need to pay for a home help, or taxi journeys to the hospital.
All of this causes stress and financial worry, and making a claim through solicitors in Clarkston could enable you to claw back your expenses and gain some money to help you get your life back on track as you recover from your injuries.
