Do you need to contact Viewpark accident claim solicitors after receiving hospital treatment?
If you’ve been hurt or if you’ve suffered an injury, you may need to access medical help. Depending on the severity of your injuries, there are a range of ways to get help. If your injuries are relatively minor, you may choose to treat them at home. If you’re unsure what to do, you could phone the NHS telephone helpline which could advise the appropriate way for you to treat the injury. Of course, if you need further assistance, you could visit your GP’s surgery or an NHS walk-in clinic. However, if you’ve sustained very serious or life-threatening injuries, you may need to access your nearest accident and emergency department at a hospital. If you’re unable to get there yourself, you could call for an ambulance so that you are able to access the help that you need.
If you have received medical assistance for your injuries, this could be helpful if you decide to make a compensation claim with Viewpark accident claim solicitors at a later date. If your injuries are stated on your medical record, it can help to confirm exactly what happened and what treatment you required. This information can be used by your Viewpark accident claim solicitors when it comes to making your claim. Indeed, medical professionals may even be able to provide information regarding how the injuries were caused which could help to confirm who or what was responsible for the harm that you suffered.
Although everyone is entitled to a copy of their own medical records, they aren’t always easy to access. If you don’t have a copy of your medical records, this won’t necessarily stop you from being able to make a claim with Viewpark accident claim solicitors. In many cases, Viewpark accident claim solicitors will be able to help you access the records which could help you to make your compensation claim.
If you’re considering making a claim with Viewpark accident claim solicitors, you do need to be aware that there can be time limits on how long people have got to make a claim after they’ve been hurt. Although claimants can often make a claim up to three years after they’ve been hurt, you may want to start your compensation claim sooner rather than later.
