    Choosing an accident solicitor in Aberlady

    Reporting an accident need not be a complicated affair, but what exactly is it that you should do in the event that you are involved in car accident? There are a few things to do before calling an accident solicitor in Aberlady if you are to stay within the law following a road accident.

    How to report your accident

    If you are ever involved in a road traffic accident, and you were driving, if somebody other than yourself is injured, there is damage caused to another vehicle, or an animal has been killed or injured that was not in your vehicle at the time, then you must:

    • Stop and remain at the scene for a reasonable period (time enough for others to be notified, details to be left, etc.); and
    • Give your vehicle registration number, name and address, and that of the vehicle owner (if the vehicle is not yours) to anyone with reasonable grounds for asking for those details (such as the property owner, other vehicle owner and a police officer).

    Can you claim compensation?

    If the road traffic accident, or any other type of accident, was not your fault, and you suffered injuries that needed medical attention, you could be entitled to claim compensation. There are time limits attached to all claims though, mostly 3 years, so you should have a chat to the friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline to see if you qualify to make a claim.

    Or you could complete our 30-second test online. This asks just four simple questions and then lets you know if you have a valid claim. If you do, it will give you an estimate of the amount of compensation you could be awarded.

    Accidents can be expensive. Apart from having to pay for prescriptions, travelling costs and a whole host of other things, you could well need to take time off work. So at a time when your financial situation is not good, the last thing you need is to be worrying about how you would pay the lawyers fees to make a compensation claim.
