You’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault and you want to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation. Simple isn’t it? Everybody’s doing it aren’t they? It isn’t quite that simple, and when thinking about pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation you must ensure that you take all the right steps to protect your entitlement to injury compensation.

Don’t Leave It To Chance, – Make Sure You Succeed!

The Accident & Injury Wasn’t My Fault. I Am Bound To Succeed Aren’t I? That’s Justice, & My Injury Solicitors’ Job.

Well, to a degree, yes. However, it’s your claim – so make sure you take all steps to ensure it succeeds, and you receive the personal injury compensation you deserve.

Why? – We’ve all heard it said by the seemingly cynical lawyers in the movies: “it doesn’t matter about the truth, or that it actually happened that way, it only matters what you can prove.”

Sounding cynical or not, – this has to be the start point for any personal injury claim for compensation. Any personal injury solicitor advising clients about their personal injury compensation claims has to start at this point to protect their clients interests. If they don’t, they’re setting you up for another fall.

How Do I ensure Justice Is Done In My Claim?

The first thing we must all do when we have suffered an injury that was not our fault if you wish to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation, is to think about how you can obtain proof that the accident was not your fault, and that the personal injuries you suffered were caused as a result of that accident or the negligence of another.

Taking control of your life and the situation immediately, or as fast as is possible, really is key to success, and as swift a recovery from the injuries you have suffered as is possible. For example, if you have been involved in an accident in public, did anybody see it? Is anybody prepared to be a witness to the accident circumstances and therefore your personal injury claim?

We all have with us daily it appears in this day and age, mobile telephones or handheld computers that have cameras attached. Take a photograph of the accident scene. If you have been injured in the premises of another such as a supermarket, take a photograph on your phone – and make sure that the incident is logged in the accident book of the owner of the place where you had the accident.

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, think about getting a camera fitted to your windscreen so that you have actual footage of the accident itself. This can hardly be disputed. Similarly, telephone the police if you have been involved in a road traffic accident or obtain the details and business cards of any passers-by who may be able to assist you as a witness.

People Really Do Care About Others When They’re Injured You Know.

People genuinely do want to help people in their time of need. It is essential that you ensure that the injuries you have suffered in an accident that was not your fault are accurately stated and recorded by any medical experts that you see, be that your General Practitioner, a nurse in triage at Accident & Emergency at your local hospital, and any doctors that you see.

It is always sensible to advise how the accident and the injuries suffered were sustained. This is really important advice for anybody pursuing a personal injury compensation claim.

It is always disappointing when a carelessly made medical record has negative consequences for the injured victim of an accident that was not their fault, and the damage it can cause to a personal injury compensation claims is devastating. Always make sure that you mention the accident and indeed the circumstances of how you came to suffer those injuries. This protects you and your compensation claim, because it provides proof that the incident occurred as you have stated, and that importantly, you sustained the personal injuries that are the subject of your injury compensation claim in that precise, and recorded way.

If you want to succeed in your personal injury compensation claim, it is essential that you take control from the moment the accident has happened. Remember, take photographs, obtain the details of witnesses, make sure the incident is recorded in an accident book, and if you spend any money as a result of the incident, – make sure that you obtain receipts to prove the cost of your purchase, so you can get that money back too.
