A quick trawl through any Internet search engine for “Accidents in Hendon” retrieves an alarming amount of hits. Where do you start? Many of these hits are related to motoring incidents. So if you have been involved in a road traffic accident in the area what should you do before trying to contact one of the many types of accident solicitor in Hendon can offer you?
Seek medical attention
Even if you have walked away from the accident scene unscathed, it is always wise to be checked out by your local G.P. Injuries such as whiplash, or compression to the chest from a seat belt, may not reveal themselves until hours or even days after the accident. If your G.P decides that you need some form of treatment then look at the facts surrounding the accident and make sure you get a copy of the medical report.
Was it your fault?
If the accident was a result of your own driving then even the most experienced accident solicitor Hendon has will be unable to create a valid claim for you. In any personal injury compensation claim, there has to be an element of blame attached to another party. The police report will be very useful in determining this.
If your accident happened more than three years ago then you have, sadly, left it too late. All claims must be made within three years of the date of the accident. If you are waiting on a liability decision from an insurance company you can still go ahead and make your claim.
