You will be able to claim compensation for any pain and suffering caused by your accident. You may also be able to recover other losses you may have incurred such as:

  • the cost of medical treatment or medication
  • damage to clothing
  • loss of earnings
  • travel expenses to and from your GP or Hospital for treatment
  • care and assistance someone has had to give you because of your injuries

Keep a record of any financial losses you have suffered as a result of your accident. Keep any receipts for those losses.


Take photographs of the defect etc which caused your accident as soon as possible. Ensure that the photographs show the size of the defect (e.g. by holding a ruler or tape measure next to the defect).


Put together a list of all those people who saw your accident take place as it will be necessary to take statements from them in the future.

Time Limits
