    Advice after a car accident in Gloucestershire

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Gloucestershire

    Have you been in a road traffic accident recently? If so, you are probably experiencing problems besides the pain from the injuries you sustained. You could be in a spot of financial bother because you’ve been off work, too.

    Don’t worry if you’re in a situation like this, because Accident Advice Helpline can give you advice after a car accident in Gloucestershire with regard to making a claim for compensation. Win your case and you’ll receive a payout that will be of considerable help to you.

    What you need to do if you’ve had a car accident

    When you had your accident, it’s fair to assume that you will have been quite shaken. Nevertheless, you will have had the presence of mind to exchange your contact details with the other driver or drivers involved. You will also have involved the police, if necessary.

    At the earliest opportunity, you will have sought medical assistance. Indeed, this could have been an urgent requirement, and you might have gone to hospital in an ambulance. But even if you had just minor injuries from the accident, you will have seen your GP.

    If you’ve done all of this, that’s great, but there are other things you need to do.

    Firstly, make sure you keep hold of receipts for anything you’ve paid for that you wouldn’t normally need.

    Secondly, did you take photos of the scene of the accident? What about photos of your injuries? If you did, make sure these are stored safely.

    Thirdly, did you collect the contact details of any witnesses to the accident? If so, make sure you have them noted down and kept somewhere that is easily accessible.

    Why are receipts, photos and witnesses’ details needed?

    These could be very useful to your case if you decide to contact Accident Advice Helpline for claims advice after a car accident in Gloucestershire and go ahead with a claim.

    Your medical records from the hospital or your GP’s surgery will also be useful. In fact, the more evidence there is, the better. It will really help your solicitor if there is plenty of information available.

    Your compensation payout, if you win your case, will consist of an element for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, and an element for any expenses you’ve incurred. Receipts, photos of your injuries, and medical records, will all help you to get the payout you deserve.
