Make an account of the accident/ incident as soon as possible after the event, whilst everything is still fresh in your mind. This will be of great assistance to you and your legal team.
Research your personal injury * solicitor. The web is a great resource to you in this task. Do not be afraid to query their experience, similar cases, outcome etc. Family and friends might also be able to provide you with recommendations.
Depending on the accident, try to take pictures of the area, any vehicles involved, your injuries etc.
Take names of other parties involved in an accident, any witnesses, insurance details (if applicable), registration details (if applicable).
If you cannot afford to pay a personal injuries * solicitor, investigate whether some will act on a no win no fee basis. Whilst solicitors are not able to advertise that they will work on a no win no fee basis, they can actually carry out the work this way and many in fact do.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement. This statement is made in compliance with Reg.8 of SI 518 of 2002.
