If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Alloa due to an accident which was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation back for your injuries. The only way you can claim compensation from another person is if your accident was caused by another person, and you are able to prove this.
Finding solicitors to process a whiplash injury claim
The best way to claim compensation if you do have evidence is to find experienced injury lawyers, who will be able to put together a strong case which has a better chance of being successful. Here are the ways in which you can find these solicitors and make a claim for your whiplash injury in Alloa.
Get your injuries looked over by a doctor
Your injuries need to be officially recorded as part of a medical assessment by a doctor, so get to a hospital or your GP as soon as you can after your accident. Your doctor can fill out a medical report and give you a copy, which you can then pass over to your injury lawyers as proof of the injuries you have sustained, how serious they were, and what is likely to have caused them.
Get proof of your accident
You can either do this when the accident happens by taking photographs of the damage to your vehicle, and the scene of the accident, or by getting a copy of the police report of the accident. The police should be called out to every road accident and will take statements from yourself and the other driver, as well as any witnesses to the crash. You can then go into the police station and pay for a copy of the report, which you can pass over to your solicitors.
