Unfortunately, according to the latest report by the Department of Transport, nearly 196,000 Brits were casualties of road traffic accidents in 2012.
Car crashes are extremely troubling for drivers, who often experience physical and mental issues as well as any financial implications of the collision.
What happens after my road traffic accident?
Once you have been discharged from hospital and have rested, it is time to look over the information that was collated at the scene of the incident.
Ideally, you will need the following documents and details to provide the best support for your claim:
- details of other drivers involved including their insurance details, name, address and contact number
- the name, address and contact numbers of any witnesses at the road traffic incident
- photographs of damage to your vehicle and injuries to yourself caused by the car accident
Who should I approach with my claim?
Dealing with a compensation provider such as Accident Advice Helpline will guarantee that your claim is processed as efficiently as possible, with minimal input from yourself.
