    True or false? The hospital released me after my car accident. Is that it?

    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.

    Being discharged from hospital following a road-related injury doesn’t have to mean it is the end for the road of victims of car collisions.

    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:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • 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.

    After a road traffic accident the stress of legal meetings and going to court is the last thing anyone needs, which is why Accident Advice Helpline aims to process the majority of its cases over the phone with little need for claimants to attend court.

    A no win no fee* basis also gives the peace of mind that you are not charged for advice or services that you will not be able to afford. Unless you receive compensation, no fee* is charged, no matter which legal partner Accident Advice Helpline feels most fits your road-related injury claim.

    Where do I go from there?

    Begin by checking online if you are eligible to claim for car crash compensation. Known as the ’30-second test’, Accident Advice Helpline’s compensation calculator will indicate whether or not your claim is valid.
