Do you need advice after a car accident in North Yorkshire?
If you have been involved in a car accident, you could easily feel overwhelmed by the turn of events.
If another driver was to blame, you could particularly feel uneasy and unsure about what to do next. Your thoughts may of course turn to your injuries, and then to the damage done to your car, but all too often innocent accident victims fail to think about claiming compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we know it can seem like the last thing on your mind, but making a claim with our help could not be easier.
Our top pieces of advice after a car accident in North Yorkshire
Immediately following an accident, no matter how severe, bear this information in mind. It could be incredibly helpful down the line should you wish to pursue a compensation claim:
Report the accident
Even if the accident is minor in nature and you have seemingly not suffered any injuries, make sure you report the accident. It could in fact be the case that you’re experiencing shock, and that’s why you don’t feel any pain. Failing to report the accident can mean that there’s no evidence in place to support that you weren’t at fault, something that could all but ruin your chances of successfully seeking compensation.
Get medical treatment
Common injuries that arise following a car accident such as whiplash may not present any symptoms until several hours after the fact. It might even be the following day until they start to appear. You should always have a professional medical evaluation after an accident, as your doctor will be able to ensure you are properly treated, and also fill in documentation that you could rely on later when making a claim.
