Whether it’s an accident at work, a road traffic accident, or simply an accident out in a public space, personal injury* cases are unfortunate occurences which can cause a great deal of strain physically, mentally and financially. In cases where you have become injured due to the negligence of a third party, there are steps you can take to ensure you receive adequate compensation for your injuries. Holland Condon Solicitors in Kilkenny have provided us with the following tips for making a personal injury* claim:
Seek Medical Assistance
First and foremost, you should seek medical assistance for any injuries you have sustained, as your health is always the first priority. Depending on the injuries, you may just need a quick check-up or something more substantial. If you see a medical practitioner, they will keep a record of all injuries and treatments, which will be necessary if you decide to pursue a personal injury* claim. It is important to let your doctor to know of all of your injuries no matter how minor you think they are.
Keep A Record
To help with your case, you should try to record as much information as possible regarding your personal injury*. Depending on the location, there are many things to consider, e.g.: was there CCTV in the area, witnesses, if on the road; did you get the other driver’s details, etc. Information like this will be invaluable in making your case for compensation.
Talk To A Solicitor
All personal injury* claims (excluding medical negligence claims) must be filed with the Injuries boards, which can be a confusing process, which is why it is recommended you seek the services of an experienced personal injury* solicitor.
