If you have been injured while riding a motorbike, then you may be eligible for compensation. So long as the accident was not wholly your fault and it happened no more than three years ago, you meet the basic eligibility criteria for making a claim.
In order to process your claim as quickly as possible, your compensation claim solicitor will need a few things from you. Thankfully, what your solicitor needs from you is easy to obtain and often requires nothing more than a piece of paper and a pen.
Here’s a list of the things your compensation claim solicitor needs from you:
- The location your accident happened
Your solicitor needs this so that they can investigate your claim. If you do not know the exact location, attempt to establish it by using software like Google Maps.
- Details about how your accident happened
You will be interviewed by your compensation claim solicitor to establish the facts surrounding your case, however it is still a good to write a statement of events.
This can be used as evidence to support your claims and it will help you to keep the true circumstances of your accident in your mind.
- Details about your injuries and how they have affected you
While the extent of your injuries and how they have and will affect your life will be established during a medical examination, your solicitor still needs to know basic details about your injuries so that they can begin to build you a compelling case for compensation.
It is a good idea to write down all your physical injuries, no matter how minor they might be, and to also write down any psychological problems you are experiencing.
How your compensation claim solicitor will build you a strong claim for compensation
With just the above information to hand, your solicitor will start to build your case. A detailed statement will be taken from you by your solicitor a week or so into your claim, and two or three weeks later you will attend a medical examination.
Once these aspects of your claim are over and done with, your input into the claims process will be over and your solicitor will have everything they need to build you a strong claim for compensation. And if your solicitor does need anything else from you they will ask you for it.
