But what exactly should you do if you are hurt in an accident that was not your fault?

Points to follow after an accident…
Whatever you are intending to do about your personal injury, actions you could take include:-
- inform the police if, just as an example, the injury resulted from a road accident.
- if the injury was the result of a road accident, report it to your insurance company. This is important because your insurance policy may be invalid if an accident is not reported.
- report the injury to your doctor. You should do this even if the injury seems minor. If you subsequently go to court to get compensation for the injury, the doctor will be asked to provide a medical report.
- Collect a little evidence about the accident and your injuries. For instance, it may prove useful later on if you took photographs of the scene of an accident and of what caused the injury. You should also, as soon as you are able, write an account of the incident while details are still fresh in your mind. If there are witnesses, you could make a note of their names and numbers (or possibly just email addresses).
- Looking for an accident solicitor in Aviemore would be the next logical step.
