Accident solicitor in Whitchurch


Accident Solicitor in Whitchurch

If you are involved in a road traffic accident in Whitchurch, there are some steps that you must take to comply with the law and make it easier for you to make a compensation claim. If you do not follow these steps, you may prejudice your compensation claim – particularly if it is a ‘non-fault’ claim.

You must stop and stay with your vehicle long enough to exchange details with anyone else involved in the accident

You must exchange details with everyone involved in the accident, including casualties, the owners of damaged property and witnesses to the accident. Even if you believe you may have been partially at fault, you should not discuss liability for the road traffic accident. If you admit your guilt, you will weaken your position in any subsequent dispute and may receive a lower compensation settlement.

You must produce an insurance certificate

If someone has sustained injuries or property damage, you must produce a copy of your car insurance certificate. If you cannot do so at the time of the accident, you must notify the police within 24 hours and take your insurance certificate to the police station within seven days.

You must gather evidence

You should take the time to make your own notes of the details of the accident. If you can, you should take photographs of the road layout, the position of your vehicle and any other vehicles involved, and any hazards that may have contributed to your accident. You should also make a note of any medical treatment or expenses you incur as a result of your accident.

Inform your insurance company

If you do not inform your insurance company, you may invalidate your insurance coverage.
