    Accidents on the road in York


    The historic city of York is home to many people, and attracts a large number of tourists every year, who marvel at the architecture, visit York Minster, and experience the famous Jorvik Viking Centre.

    In any city that has such a lot going on, including a vibrant night-life enjoyed by residents and visitors alike, it’s inevitable that accidents will sometimes happen.

    Indeed, accidents on the road in York certainly take place, and if this happens to you – whether you live there or you’re visiting – you need to know what to do.

    At the scene of accidents on the road in York

    First of all, make sure you don’t go anywhere! This may seem like a strange thing to say, but think of the number of cases you hear about where someone drives into another car and then speeds off afterwards. That’s illegal – so make sure you stay at the scene.

    Whilst at the scene, get the other driver’s name, address and insurance details, and give them yours. Make sure the police are notified if there is any injury to anyone, or if there’s any property damage.

    After these obligations have been fulfilled…

    Gather the names and phone numbers of witnesses at the scene. Accidents on the road in York are often seen by others, and they could be able to help you.

    Take some photos, too. With photos, you will be able to capture the road conditions as they were at the time of the accident; you will be able to record how your car was positioned (and how the other vehicle was positioned) immediately after the accident, which will help the insurance company to decide who is at fault.

    Your evidence could also be useful if you subsequently decide to claim compensation.

    Claiming for accidents on the road in York

    It is a good idea to claim, if you are eligible, because if you win your case, you will receive a payout for the accident – and the sum you are paid will also cover your expenses.

    Many people don’t realise that accidents and injuries can have a negative effect on your bank balance, but they certainly can! If you need to take time off work, you could lose pay; if you need to hire a home help and take prescription medication, you will need to pay for these.

    This situation has arisen because someone else caused it – so why not claim? Get your money back!
