After an accident, there are lots of things that you can do help your case.
For example, if you have been in a car accident, your claim can be supported by evidence such as photos and eyewitness accounts from the time of the accident.
If you received medical attention at the time of the accident your medical records can prove useful as evidence to support your claim.
So, what are the best things you can do to help your case?
Keep all records
Stay organised and keep a record and of any police reports, medical records or contact information of anyone involved. The court or your personal injury lawyer will most likely request these documents during your case.
Keep details of your claim private
Be wary when using social media and talking to your friends about regarding your personal injury claim. You do not want to release too much information that could be taken out of context as this could then be used against you in court.
