Successful injury and accident claims for compensation
If you have suffered injuries in an accident that was not your fault, you may be trying to decide whether to claim compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm that helps thousands of innocent accident victims every year to claim the compensation they deserve, and using this expertise, we have detailed below 5 tips for making successful injury and accident claims for compensation.
Obtain witness accounts to back you up
This obviously depends on the type of injury and accident that you have suffered, and how serious it was, but if you can obtain the details of any witnesses to the accident, it could help your claim significantly. Identifying someone who is prepared to corroborate your version of events is a huge benefit when claiming compensation, and you should ask them to write down what happened as soon as possible following the accident.
Take photographs of the scene of the accident
If you are able, take photographs of such things as faulty equipment, loose flooring, or damage to a road – anything that you think may have contributed to your accident. They may be used as evidence against the negligent party, and can help your injury and accident claim considerably.
Make sure that you use the services of a no-win, no-fee injury and accident solicitor.
This is imperative to your financial wellbeing, as the alternative is to pay huge legal fees upfront. No-win, no-fee, or a Conditional Fee Agreement as it is also known, gives innocent accident victims access to the justice system when they need it most, and replaces the use of legal aid for making personal injury claims.
Make sure you also claim for out-of-pocket expenses
You may need to travel in relation to your claim, to a medical assessment, or maybe to court. If you keep all your receipts your injury and accident solicitor will be able to claim back out-of-pocket expenses such as car parking charges or the cost of public transport.
