Have you been hurt in a car crash?

If you are a passenger or a driver in a car crash the first thing you have to deal with is the shock. Even in a minor road traffic accident there is the sense of fear and distress often before the actual impact which makes you feel very shaky anyway. If then the outcome is that you are hurt in a car crash you will have lots to worry about, especially if your injuries are severe without having to worry about finances as well. Obviously as a passenger (or pedestrian) the question of whose fault it is is unlikely to be an issue – unless the pedestrian stepped out into the path of the car – but a driver needs to prove the other driver is at fault to be able to claim personal injury compensation.

If you are hurt in a car crash get the details of the other driver

Sometimes the injuries mean that you need urgent medical care and in an accident of that severity it is likely that the police and ambulance will be attending. This does make things easier for when you call Accident Advice Helpline to speak to one of our lawyers because they will be able to find out all about your accident by accessing the police report of the accident. This makes the whole process much quicker and most insurance companies do not contest any action for personal injury compensation if you are hurt in a car crash that is clearly not your fault. The only question at issue would be the amount of compensation. Our patron Esther Rantzen is very proud of our no win, no fee* system as it takes the pressure off the claimant who does not need to find any money up front, a very important point at a stressful time.

Seek medical advice

If you are hurt in a car crash don’t be tempted to shrug it off. Although you may not be in pain or have any visible cuts and bruises, injuries such as whiplash and other musculo-skeletal injuries can cause trouble in the weeks following the accident, so a check-up is essential. This will also be an important piece of evidence in the event that there is a court case – this is nothing to worry about as you will almost certainly not have to attend, but having corroborating medical evidence is an important part of the process and makes it simpler.
