If you are involved in an accident, it can be a very traumatic experience and at the time, all you can really focus on is the accident itself and the injuries you have sustained. The last thing which probably enters your mind is the prospect of making a claim for compensation; this will generally be an after-thought when the dust has settled. In order to ensure your claim has the best possible chance of success, it is important to ensure you don’t make any mistakes when submitting your form. Of course, this can be difficult but there are ways you can minimise the risk of making errors on your claim.
It can be easy to get swept up in the process of making a compensation claim and the specific details of the claim may quite easily escape your mind. It is, however, important to take time to think about the accident, including the specific details of how it happened and the date/time of the incident. These are crucial when it comes to submitting a successful claim and can easily make or break your claim, if the details don’t add up. Don’t be hasty when it comes to filling out your form, take plenty of time to stop and consider all the facts.
In order to ensure your claim is completely accurately, you may want to get some help from the people who know best, the witnesses! It can be easy for the details of the event to become mixed up in your mind, especially if you have been badly injured and witnesses can help ensure the facts are just as they should be! Errors on a claim form can easily contribute to an unsuccessful claim, so get as much help as you possibly can.
Any evidence you have relating to you claim can help support it and ensure you don’t end up making some costly mistakes on your form. Evidence may include medical records pertaining to the injury and photographs of the incident. This evidence can provide some support when you’re making your claim and will provide guidance so you don’t make mistakes.
In addition to witnesses, you may want to get someone to look over your claims form, just to be sure that you have filled it in correctly. It will be helpful to choose someone who has already been through the process and knows how it all works. If you have never been involved in a claim, it can seem a little daunting to fill out the claims form, so a second opinion can really come in handy!
