I’M NOT SURE IF MY INJURY IS SERIOUS ENOUGH

Except in very minor injuries, it is very rare to not have some degree of incapacity after your accident.

Even a simple injury to your hand could make ordinary household chores and personal care, more difficult to do. A sprained ankle could mean that you are unable to get around as easily. In such circumstances, you will need assistance from your relatives and friends.

Good news is that any assistance that you receive will potentially be possible to recover from the Defendant as part of a claim for compensation.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IMMEDIATELY AFTER INJURY

  • To seek medical attention, even if you feel this is a minor injury it could be something more serious.
  • If you own the product, please keep this as it may be tested at a later date, please keep all receipts and correspondence between you and the manufacturer, supplier or retailer if you have made a complaint.
  • Try to take photographs of the products, especially the warning labels, make and model numbers and the serial number.
  • If you do not own the product, please inform the owner immediately and try to obtain as much of the above information as possible.

WHAT WILL LITKRAFT NEED FROM YOU?

To start your case, we will need to know the following:

  • the date of the accident, where and how it happened;
  • the contact details for any witnesses;
  • the details of your injuries, medical diagnosis, and treatment;
  • proof of your loss of earnings and other financial expenses which are the result of your injury;
  • any documents that can be used to support your claim.

Keep a full record of any expenses you incur as a result of your accident. This may include the cost of medical treatment, travel involved in obtaining medical treatment, and even costs incurred by your family traveling to visit you whilst you recover.
