    How to claim for rush hour accidents


    At Accident Advice Helpline, we aim to guide you through every single step of the claim-making process. That’s why we publish these handy guides, in order to make the process as transparent and as efficient as possible.

    Road traffic accidents in rush hour

    If you’ve been involved in a road traffic collision during rush hour, then it is important to collect the details of the other party involved. You should swap names, addresses, contact details and insurance details. If the other driver fails to provide this, make a note of their registration and pass this on to the police. The police will then be able to check who the registered keeper or owner of the vehicle is, and if the owner or keeper was not the driver, they are legally obligated to pass on this information, as it is an offence not to do so.

    Commuting by rail during rush hour

    If you’ve been injured by a slip, trip or fall at a railway station, then take names and contact details of any witnesses to the events. Make a note of when and where your injuries occurred and remember to take a record of all subsequent medical appointments.

    Commuting by air during rush hour

    If you’ve been injured whilst travelling by air, then the process is much the same as travelling by rail. Note all important information and try to get the contact details of any witnesses who may be present. Now it’s time to contact Accident Advice Helpline.
