    South Derbyshire personal injury claims


    Every year, we handle hundreds of claims. However we often find that people harm their own chances of making a claim because they don’t provide the full picture when working with us. For this reason, when you’re making South Derbyshire personal injury claims, here are some of the things you should always remember to tell us about.

    Making South Derbyshire personal injury claims

    First though, it’s worth remembering what factors will determine success. The law says that you can make a claim if you were injured in an accident which was not your fault. Because this is a court of law you’ll have to demonstrate to the full satisfaction of the court that the accident you suffered was not your fault and was in fact someone else’s fault. That can be a serious challenge, but it’s something we take very seriously at Accident Advice Helpline, which is why our team is on hand at every step of the way to make sure you have everything you need.

    Getting evidence

    Proving your case needs one thing more than anything else – evidence. This could be witness statements from people who were at the scene, photographic evidence or anything that can support your claim. If you were in a road traffic accident, for example, it can be helpful if you get the contact details of anyone who was there, and the names and numbers of any police officers. You won’t need to contact these people directly – your law firm can do this for you.

    Providing information on all your injuries

    People have also been known to not tell their law firm about all the injuries they have suffered. This is extremely counter productive and is something which should be avoided if possible. You’ll need to be as clear as possible about any issues even if they think they don’t count as part of a compensation claim. We can always tell you to disregard something which doesn’t count, but what we can’t do is take account of things you don’t tell us about.

    One of the things people often forget to talk about are mental issues. This is because we don’t understand the mind as well as we do physical conditions. However, these can be just as debilitating which is why it’s so important to include this in a compensation claim.
