Additional evidence to support making a personal injury claim: –
Now you may wonder how this next point would be of any use to your claim but measurements, yes you heard it right measurements are particularly important in slip and trip cases.
If you have slipped on a wet surface, tripped on a detective floor, pothole or footpath you should measure and photograph the damaged area.

Now think about how the injury sustained has affected your financial situation… ALWAYS make a record of your financial losses from the injury including, medical costs, travel expenses, loss of earnings and damage costs.
Finally, it’s always a good idea to keep a record diary to support your claim. There is no harm in keeping a record of how the injury/ accident has affected your day to day living including and care assistance you have received and how the incident has not just affected you physically but also emotionally as well.
