How to back up your accident claim?
Before I start talking about how to back up your accident claim, you need to ask yourself what is your accident claim. Is it a personal accident claim or it is for your business?
Personal accident claims are also known as personal injury claims and they are filed by individuals. Personal injury claims are generally filed by those who have been injured by another person’s negligent act. The act is called negligent because the injured party has not taken the necessary precautions to avoid being injured.
These cases of personal injury claim are very common especially when it comes to work accidents. If you are involved in a car accident, then you need to take photographs of your vehicle and take your statement. It will also be good if you can take photos of your injuries. You need to call your family doctor and ask him/her to write down all your injuries. A list of your medical bills, receipts for your treatment, and a signed photo of your injuries is enough to back up your personal accident claim.
Business accident claims can be made in two ways, first is by a third party that is a business owner or employee. If you are a business owner, then you may file a third party claim. If you are an employee, then you need to be an employee under the employer’s payroll system. An accident claim is filed only by those employees under the employers’ payroll system.
In order to back up your accident claim, you need to gather all the proof of your accident and take a picture of it. You also need to take a copy of the documents that will help you to file your accident claim.

3. Police report

5. Statement from your lawyer

You can use any of these documents, but I will suggest you to keep a copy of your police report.
As you can see, there are many ways to back up your accident claim. You can either use the method that suits your personal needs or you can also use the official methods to back up your accident claim.
