When you’ve been in a car accident, the immediate aftermath can be really stressful. You have to exchange your contact and insurance details with the other driver involved in the accident, you need to get the police to attend the scene because you’ve been injured, and you may also need to gather contact information from any witnesses.
After that, of course, there’s the medical treatment to think about. A hospital visit could have been required, or at least a trip to the GP as soon as possible. Even something like whiplash needs to be checked out by a doctor.
What else needs to be done after all this, though? What advice after a car accident in Hertfordshire might you need?
Money can be tight after a road traffic collision
Right now, your main concern could be your money. Yes, you’re still in pain because of your injuries, but you’re just about getting through the healing process because you’re on prescription medication and following your doctor’s orders.
In order to ease your recovery, though, you might have taken quite a bit of time off work. Because of this, you could have lost wages. On top of that, you could have been paying out a lot of extra money for things you wouldn’t normally need, such as your prescription medication, as well as home helps, childminders and taxi journeys.
Reduced income is bad enough, but additional expenses can make an already difficult situation unbearable.
