    Advice after a car accident in South Derbyshire

    Our top pieces of advice after a car accident in South Derbyshire

    If you have been in a road traffic accident, you understandably could have lots to deal with.

    You could feel overwhelmed by the number of things to do, which could mean you forget something that may be important if you decide to make a compensation claim. As experts in the personal injury field, we are able to provide you with some helpful advice after a car accident in South Derbyshire that could increase your chances of making a successful claim:

    Always report the accident

    If you’ve been involved in a minor collision, or you don’t feel as though you’ve sustained any injuries at the time, it’s important to still report the accident to authorities and exchange details with the other driver. It can often be the case with injuries such as whiplash that symptoms are not apparent right away, which means they can onset later on when you least expect it. Having proof of your injuries as documented by a medical professional is integral to your claim, as is a police report that supports you weren’t to blame.

    Always seek medical attention

    As shock and adrenaline can mask the symptoms of injuries, you may think you have escaped unscathed when in fact this isn’t the case. Make sure to get treatment to not only help your recovery, but also document the extent of your injuries.

    See if you could claim

    All it takes is a mere 30-seconds to find out if you qualify. If someone else caused your accident and it took place within the past three years, the chances are you are within your rights to take action and seek compensation. You can get a quick quote online, and if you decide you want to move forward with a claim, you can contact us to get started.
