Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors in Beningbrough do everything they can to ensure that you are awarded a fair compensation settlement after being injured in an accident that was not your fault. However, there are a number of things that you can do to help you case.
It goes without saying that we will do all we can to help you get the compensation you deserve, but if you are able to collect as much evidence regarding your accident as possible, this will go a long way to helping us achieve the right result.
Doing as much as you can to document your accident, such as getting photographs of the scene, writing down the series of events and making an official report, will all make it much easier to prove your case.
Collect witness contact details
If you are able to do so, it is always worth asking witnesses to your accident if they would be willing to hand over their contact details, so that you have people who can back up your version of events, should you need to do so.
Don’t worry if you are unable to do this, as we may be able to help you track down witnesses at later date, if it is deemed necessary to do so.
Document your injuries
As well as taking photographs of the accident scene, it would be helpful if you or a family member could document the extent of your injuries by taking photos as soon after the accident as possible. It is at this time when your injuries will appear worst, so they will provide a good idea of the extent of suffering that was caused to you.
See a doctor as soon as possible
If you want to claim compensation, you will need to be able to prove that you were injured and visiting a doctor is the only way to do this.
Stick to a treatment plan
If you want to avoid claims that you made your on injuries worse, then you should do everything in your power to ensure that you comply with your doctor’s advice, whether this means resting for a week or two, having surgery or visiting a physiotherapist.
