What to do after a road accident
If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a road accident which was no fault of yours, then you should first of all ascertain if anyone has been hurt. If they have, call the emergency services. You will need to call the police if your car is blocking the road. Having a police report and photographs of the accident scene which you can take with your mobile phone, will help you with a compensation claim or when dealing with insurance companies. You should avoid saying “sorry” at the accident scene, as that can be seen as an admission of guilt later.
You need names, addresses and contact numbers for people involved in the accident. You should also try to exchange insurance details. If there are any witnesses get their names and addresses too.
In the case of a multiple pile-up on a motorway you should get the registration details of as many of the cars involved as you can. You should also take note of the make and model of each car.
You will need to describe the weather conditions and any problems you noticed with the road (potholes in its surface, for example) or the quality of the lighting, which could have some bearing on the accident if it occurred at twilight or night, so that you observations can be taken into consideration when you come to make an insurance claim or a personal injury compensation claim. The time and date of the crash will be recorded in the police report, but you should also make a note of this information.
It is also advisable to seek medical treatment after an accident just in case you have an injury which is not immediately obvious because of the shock you have after an accident has occurred.
