The success of your traffic accident compensation claim in Stockton-on-Tees will be highly dependent on the amount of evidence that you have at your disposal. The more evidence you have, the easier it will be to claim compensation. On this page, we at Accident Advice Helpline are going to discuss a few of the most important pieces of evidence you can have to hand before you get in touch with us.
This is the only vital piece of evidence on this page. Without your medical report, we can’t deal with your case. There is no exception to this rule. You will need to obtain a medical report as soon as possible after your accident occurred.
The medical report will highlight the injuries that you have suffered. If you are making a traffic accident compensation claim in Stockton-on-Tees, you will need to have suffered an injury. It does not matter so much what those injuries are. It can be either a minor or severe injury. All that matters is that the car accident caused your injuries.
One of the most important concepts to establish when it comes to a compensation claim is that somebody was negligent. It will be the negligent party who has to pay out compensation, or at least their insurance company. There are a number of different ways in which you can prove negligence. The easiest way will be through a police report. The police report, prepared by the attending police officer, will highlight who they believe, in their professional opinion, to be responsible for the accident.
Remember, if you have been involved in a car accident, you must always call the police. Do not let the other person leave the scene of the incident until the police have been called.
Photographs and videos
This evidence is not vital, but it is going to be helpful when it comes to proving your claim. It is likely that you will be asked to provide evidence many months after you have been involved in the accident. It may not be quite as vivid in your mind at this point. This is why photographs and videos will come in useful. They will help to jog your memory.
Details of expenses
Compensation is there to cover any financial losses you have made as a result of the accident. You will need to submit evidence of these financial losses. This could, perhaps, mean details of any time you have had to take away from work and receipts for medical equipment.
