Need an accident solicitor in Sandy?
You can’t predict the future, and sometimes no matter how careful you are in your everyday life, the unexpected just seems to happen. Accidents, by their nature, are unexpected occurrences. Nobody would wish to be involved in an accident, but sometimes they are unavoidable. When it comes to hiring an accident solicitor Sandy residents may well think this is one service they will never need, but just in case the unexpected does happen, here is our five-point guide to what to do immediately after a car accident.
Had a car accident? Before calling an accident solicitor, Sandy residents should remember to:
- Seek medical help
It can be tempting to start calling friends or family, or to phone the insurance company about the car, but the very first thing you need to do is to seek medical help. Many severe injuries do not become apparent straight away, so even if you think you are well it is a good idea to go to hospital and get properly checked over.
- Call the police
If the accident was minor then the police may not attend the scene, but you can still benefit from reporting the incident and getting a crime reference number for the case.
- Get details of the other party
Find out the name and address of the person who caused the accident, as well as the registration number of their car and any insurance details they can give you.
- Get details of witnesses
If other people saw the accident happen, see if they would be willing to give you their name and number for future reference.
- Take photos
Most people have at least a basic camera on their phones nowadays so use yours to capture some images straight after the accident. These may prove to be very useful later on.
