What could be the worst feeling than that of being a victim of someone’s negligence?
If you have received an injury anywhere that was not your fault, then claim for compensation as soon as possible. It is your right! But before directly heading forward, here’s something really beneficial for you. We have gathered, in this article, the most important checks and records which must be assured for compensation claims.
What Checks and What Records?
These depend upon the type and severity of the accident you faced. See below:
Seek the Doctor
Regardless of how severe accident you encountered, it is very essential to seek the doctor immediately after the accident. Your doctor will keep a record of your complete medical history. Your medical report will be very important in the off chance when the insurance company of the defendant party accuses your injuries as “prior to the accident injuries.” It will best counter the opponent’s accusation.
Keep the Diary
From minor injuries to a major loss, without neglecting anything, must keep a record of your all injuries, feelings, pain, and symptoms consequent to the accident. It will be very helpful in restoring and refreshing your state of mind and better explaining the pain and injuries to the doctor. Your solicitor will be able to refer you a medical professional (if required).
Whatever expense you bear regarding the accident from right after it to the end of compensation claims, record all the expenses and their receipts. These may include medical and travel expense, lost amount, etc. It is because the compensation amount can vary on the basis of recorded expense.
Know the Witness and his/her Details
Never ignore the witnesses. They are the persons whose words can prove your innocence in a claim compensation procedure. Keep a record of the witnesses, their phone numbers, and residential addresses (if possible), and their statements regarding the accident. These details will be very supportive of claim compensation proceedings.
Maintain an Accident Book
For the accidents and injuries happened at workplaces or the areas governed by businesses like factories, offices, workshops, etc. it is very essential for the employers as well as the employees to keep a formal accident book. It should contain the type of accident, its circumstances, date, time, and location.
