The more information that you can give your to lawyer the better prepared they will be, and so more able to help you effectively.
As guide you will need to provide the following:
Date – The date of the accident and where and how it happened, plus any photographic evidence and the personal account which you (hopefully!) wrote soon afterwards.
Witnesses – The contact details for any witnesses, and any witness statement you have already gathered.
Injuries – Details of your injuries, the medical report and any treatment to date or ongoing treatment plans.
Loss – Proof of your loss of earnings from your employer, or from other means, which demonstrate the ‘loss’ – e.g. the money you were not able to earn due to your injury.
Expenses – Details of expenses which have been incurred as a result of your injury/inability to work, for example childcare, different modes of transport, home adaptations etc.
Past claims – Any documented evidence of previous accidents involving other people in similar circumstances. For example, an earlier claim relating to the same uneven pavement.
Pre-incident records – Any documents from before your accident which might be relevant – for example an email to your employer stating that you have not been trained to use a piece of equipment that they are insisting you use and that resulted in your injury.
