A guide to making an accident claim in Preston if you have been involved in a car crash
Unfortunately, accidents on the road happen every day in the UK. If you have been involved in a car crash that was not your fault, there is every chance you will be entitled to personal injury compensation. Read on to discover everything you need to know about making this type of accident claim in Preston.
Are you eligible to make a claim for compensation?
The first thing you need to do is determine whether you actually have grounds for a successful claim. Ask yourself the following three questions.
- Did someone else crash into you? Was someone else responsible for the accident occurring?
- Did you see a medical professional afterwards for your injuries?
- Did the car crash occur within the last three years?
If you can answer yes to these three questions then you definitely have a strong chance of getting personal injury compensation and should proceed with making your accident claim in Preston.
What to do after a car crash
When you have been involved in a car crash it is important to get the details of the person that caused the incident. You will need their name, their telephone number, their address and the details of their insurer. You should also get the contact details of anyone that witnessed the car crash, as this will help to strengthen your case.
What happens if the perpetrator fled the scene? If you have been involved in a hit and run you will still be able to make a claim. However, this may be a little bit more complicated, but do not let that deter you as we can support you through this. These cases are known as untraced driver claims. You should also contact the police to let them know what has happened.
