    Accident claim in The Strand

    Personal Injury Solicitors in The Strand

    Travelling on the roads is hazardous, but is something that we all have to do. When you are in the city of London, travelling on the roads can be little short of chaotic. If you are involved in an inner city accident and want to make an accident claim in The Strand, the surrounding area will have a wide choice of firms for you. It doesn’t matter how careful a driver you are yourself — there will always be someone on the roads who is less observant, and these drivers are the ones who may be responsible for your accident.

    Do you have to be the driver to make an accident claim in The Strand?

    A common question asked of compensation claim providers is whether or not the claimant had to be the driver of the car involved to be able to make an accident claim in The Strand, or anywhere else. The answer to that is no. Nor do you have to be the passenger in the victim’s car. Even if the driver caused the accident, their lack of attention on the road had nothing to do with you and you have every right to be compensated for the injuries that you suffered. The other party involved does not always have to be the driver of the other vehicle; it can be the driver of the car you are actually in.

    Common injuries

    Injuries sustained in a motoring accident can be devastating, and can even be fatal. Spinal injuries, paralysis and disfigurement are at one end of the spectrum; at the other are cuts and broken bones. A common injury is whiplash, which is essentially a strain of the neck muscles and in severe cases spine due to the movement of the head on impact.

    Whiplash can be mild, as in aches and pains, or it can be severe enough to cause giddiness and head pain. Whatever your injury, your compensation claim provider will have come across it before and will understand what you are going through.

    The details

    Any claim needs to be justified not only by an injury but also by the establishing of the facts around the incident. If you have been in a road traffic accident and wish to make an accident claim in The Strand, your legal firm will need to know the following:

    • The contact details of any witnesses;
    • The details of who was involved in the accident;
    • The date time and place the accident occurred;
    • The police incident report number; and
    • Details of your injuries.

    It always pays to take photographs of the vehicles and the position of the accident, although this may not be possible to do so. If you are still unsure about your accident and what you can claim, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and speak to someone with experience in compensation claims. We can be called 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so don’t delay in starting that claim.
