The first step your solicitor will take, in most cases, is to ensure that you begin taking a daily record of your symptoms and recovery process. This can be used as evidence to show that, in the case of a claim against a medical professional, that the injury is legitimate, as well as displaying the suffering it has caused you.
If a claim is being made against a solicitor, evidence must be gathered in relation to the nature of your claim against the solicitor, for example if the solicitor is guilty of negligence, evidence must be gathered to prove this.
This is the first step in acquiring evidence for the claim, and while you begin this your solicitor will be making contact with the person or company that the claim is being made against, informing them of the claim and your intentions.
In addition to this we will also attempt to provide an early idea of the sort of compensation you will be entitled to, as well as advice on how we intend to aid you in living with a serious injury.
We will carry out a Medical Examination, often during this advisory process, as part of gathering evidence.
