What advice after a car accident in Hertsmere can we give you? Quite a lot, actually, because we’ve been helping accident victims to make compensation claims for more than 15 years. Do you need our help after suffering injuries yourself? If so, you’ve found the right law firm to assist you: Accident Advice Helpline.
When did your road traffic accident take place?
We would certainly advise you to contact us as soon as possible after your accident, because there is a time limit for starting claims. It’s just three years from the date on which you sustained your injuries.
Three years may sound like a long time. In a sense, it is, but it can really fly by. When the worst of the aftermath of your accident is over, your attention might be drawn to something else. You will want to put the incident behind you, and throw yourself into normal, everyday life once again. Family events will take place. Perhaps you will seek career progression.
Wait until you’re in the right frame of mind to deal with claiming, and call us as soon as possible. We’ll make the whole process as easy as we can for you, anyway, so you really don’t have to worry about further stress.
What kind of injuries have you sustained?
A very useful piece of advice we can give you is this: consider making a claim even if you don’t think your injuries are particularly serious.
The severity of an injury suffered doesn’t affect the victim’s right to claim. A claim for whiplash is as valid as a claim for a serious head injury or loss of limbs.
Just make sure you have proof that you’ve suffered an injury. See a doctor as soon as possible after your accident. If you’ve not had to be treated in hospital, visit your GP.
What other evidence do you have?
At the scene of your car accident, you will have stopped, informed the police about the accident if anyone was injured, and exchanged your contact and insurance details with the other driver or drivers involved.
Think about what else you did, besides these basic things. Did you get the contact details of any witnesses? Their accounts of what happened could be of help to you. Did you take photos of the scene, and later on, of your injury or injuries?
Also, make sure you’ve kept your payslips to show any loss of earnings while you’ve been off sick. Keep your receipts, too, for any expenses such as taxi fares for journeys to hospital, and home help fees.
