If you’re going to stand as good a chance as possible of winning a personal injury compensation pay-out with the help of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee’ Stevenage law firm after being involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, it will be of the utmost importance that you make an effort to gather as much evidence to support your claim as you can in the direct aftermath of the incident.
Without a decent body of evidence behind you, even the very best 100% ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury solicitor will struggle to get you the compensation pay-out that you might deserve.
Evidence and Stevenage law firm solicitors
For all you know, the driver that caused your accident might be uninsured and attempt to fob you off with a bunch of false details, so where possible, it will be vital that you keep your wits about you after being injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault.
Obviously, if you are hurt badly, somebody you were travelling with could gather evidence on you behalf. Your Stevenage law firm will need medical proof that you suffered the injuries you claim to have, but as injuries that do not require medical attention typically will not qualify for a pay-out, this should not be an issue.
Get down all the details of the driver that caused the accident, including his number plate. If you can, take pictures of the aftermath of the accident with your smartphone, tablet computer or any other device that you have handy. If there were any witnesses to what happened to you, get their details down as well. Your Stevenage law firm may be able to call on them to give evidence on your behalf.
You’ll also need to contact the police about the incident. If you do not do this, your claim might be put in jeopardy. You would be well advised to call the police immediately, although in some cases you’ll have a timeframe of 14 days in which you’ll be legally required to do so.
