4. Evidence

Collecting evidence can be difficult, expensive and time consuming.

4.1 Collect comprehensive evidence. Whatever the claim, without evidence it is worthless.

4.2 Collect evidence quickly — witnesses can forget important details or disappear.

  • Ensure witnesses give objective, accurate statements. Your solicitor will want to interview them and check their statements.

4.3 Get evidence in writing. Written evidence can be used at an early stage and carries more weight in court than an unsupported statement.

  • Witnesses may change their story later, or be unable to get it across in court.
