Claim Compensation from Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents have unfortunately become part of our daily consciousness. We have become so used to news reports, closed roads and diversions that we almost forget about the victims. But if you have been the victim of a car accident that was not your fault, you are likely to be able to claim substantial compensation for your injuries. To help you get the compensation you are entitled to, here is our quick guide covering everything you need to know about how to claim compensation from a car accident through our compensation support service.
Get the Facts immediately
Straight after an accident, you are shocked and disorientated. You might believe that you are thinking clearly, but your mind is designed to deal with survival, so your memory may be short term and distorted. If you have a camera on your phone and you are able to move around, try to take picture of the scene of the car accident, including the other driver or person who caused your accident and any registration numbers on the scene. If possible, ask for the details of any witnesses.
Then, as soon as you can, either make a note of the details yourself, or ask a friend to help you. Write down everything, including dates, times, weather, road conditions, direction of travel. Then describe exactly how the accident happened. If you would like to use our compensation claims support services, call our helpline and our advisers will help take down the details of your accident.
Don’t jump to conclusions about your injuries
Even if you feel unscathed, you can find that injuries present themselves over the next 24 hours. Don’t state that you are uninjured at the scene of the accident – your adrenaline can mask injuries. Seek medical attention if you need it and make a note of the doctor’s name. Remember that your health has to come first – take the time you need to make sure you receive any advice and treatment you need.
