In order to assess your claim, your solicitor will require:
- A detailed description of where, when and how the accident happened.
- Pictures of the accident scene and if possible, pictures of your injuries as a result if the accident
- Your medical reports- however if you do not have these to hand your solicitor can request them from your doctor.
- Details of your previous medical history prior to the accident.
- Details of your loss of earnings pertaining to the accident.
- A record of the expenses you have incurred as a consequence of the accident – this may include medical costs, travel expenses and any other relevant costs incurred by you that are directly related to the accident.
If you believe that you have suffered an injury due to the fault of another person, it is important that you seek legal advice at your earliest possible opportunity. This is because the Statute of Limitations places a two year limitation within which you can make a claim. It is advisable that if you feel you have suffered an injury that you should keep a diary of events and further, keep a note of all the medical and travel expenses that you incur as a result of your injury.
