Whiplash injuries tend to occur because of road traffic accidents. However, the truth is, they can happen because of many different incidents – from slips and trips to accidents in the workplace. How it happened doesn’t really matter when it comes to compensation. What does matter is your ability to prove that the injury was not your fault, that you received medical attention and that it occurred within the last three years. If you can do this you have good grounds for a winning case. Read on to discover more information about what you will need to provide if you are going to claim for a whiplash injury in Crowcombe…
First and foremost, it is imperative that you have all medical records relating to your case. This is one of the biggest mistakes people make when they have suffered a whiplash injury in Crowcombe – they fail to get medical attention. This is because the symptoms can often be mild and because of this people do not feel they need to see a doctor. However, you need to have proof of your injury. Therefore you will need to see a medical professional and you will have to keep all records in relation to this, including any medications you have been prescribed and your visits to the hospital. Even parking receipts should be kept, as these will be used to claim for special damages.
Was there a police report of the accident? If so, you should keep a record of this. You should also make a list of all the details relating to your case. This includes where it happened, at what time it happened, the details of what occurred, and so on and so forth.
