Clear information is the key to any successful personal injury* claim. This information varies depending on the nature of the claim.
If you are in a road traffic accident it is vital that the details of the other vehicle and the driver and occupants are obtained including their insurance details and registration number as well as their name and address. The police should be called to the scene to ensure that the information you are provided with is accurate.
If an accident occurs at work* which causes you an injury, the accident should be notified to your supervisor or health and safety officer immediately. This ensures that a record is made of the accident and the injury preventing an employer from denying responsibility for an accident or even that one took place at all. These records can be obtained at a later date in your claim to successfully prove that you were indeed injured as a result of an accident caused by your employer.
If you have an accident in a public place or premises open to the public, it is essential that we can identify who owns or is in control of the area where your accident happened. Where possible, your accident should be reported to somebody in charge.
Whatever the cause of your injuries it is very important that you seek medical assistance as soon as possible. The sooner you seek medical assistance the sooner you will be started on your road to recovery. As part of your personal injury* claim we would write to your doctor or the hospital that you attended to seek a medical report detailing the nature and extent of your injuries as well as a prognosis for your recovery.
As part of any personal injury* claim you are entitled to recover all out of pocket expenses incurred directly as a result of the injuries sustained. This includes doctors' fees, chemist expenses, physiotherapy expenses and even loss of earnings and travel expenses. It is important to keep a close track of all of these expenses to ensure that you do indeed recover all that you are entitled to.
