What should you do if you have had an accident?


Unfortunately accidents occur every day and in many cases they result in an injury. Accidents include car accidents, health and safety accidents in the workplace, and trips and slips. The injuries that occur as a result of accidents can be short or long term, and they can lead to a loss of earnings due to recovery periods. Injuries can be physical, for example whiplash or broken bones from a car accident. They can also be psychological, for example depression.

If you have had an accident and been injured as a result, you may be entitled to claim compensation if the accident was not your fault. An accident claim for personal injury compensation will enable you to recover financial costs that have accrued because of the accident. This could include, for example, the cost of healthcare or transport costs. Compensation can be awarded for the pain and suffering experienced by the victim as a result of the accident. Contact Law has a wide network of personal injury solicitors right across the country who can help with your claim if you’ve had an accident.

A personal injury solicitor will assess your claim with the help of a medical expert and give you an estimate of the amount of compensation you could expect to receive. They will then pursue the claim on your behalf.

If you have had an accident there are a few important things you should do to help your solicitor make a successful personal injury claim on your behalf. These include writing down all the details you can remember about the accident as soon as possible. Details such as the time, weather conditions and witnesses could help your claim. You should also keep all the receipts and bills in relation to the accident, and keep a record of any pain you experience as a result of your injury.
