If you are looking for advice after a car crash in Portsmouth then you have come to the right place. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we know that being involved in any form of accident can be a terrifying experience, and this can be made all the worse when you factor in vehicles and potentially high speeds.
On top of being injured it can be hard to know precisely what you need to do following an accident. Obviously calling an ambulance could be the first step along with generally seeking medical advice – but what about after that?
Accident Advice Helpline advice after a car crash in Portsmouth
One of the most important things we can advise anyone to do after they have been involved in a road traffic accident is to remain calm.
Although you may feel that you are out of control it is important that you try to keep your emotions and reactions in check. Even if someone else was to blame for your accident, shouting at them is not going to change anything and it certainly won’t improve the mood of the situation.
If you remain calm and polite it will be easier to think and to have a sensible conversation with those involved. This will also mean that there is a good chance you will be able to get the information you need from them more easily. Such information will include their name, contact details and information regarding the vehicle they were driving and their insurance details.
While your insurance provider will be able to help you with the practical aspect of making your claim, and sorting out any damage done to your vehicle, the team at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with the personal injury side of things.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of this accident that you did not cause, and you had to seek medical attention and treatment as a result, then there is a good chance that you could be entitled to financial compensation. One of the easiest ways to find out is to take our 30 second test which you will find on our website. This will not only confirm if we can help you with a claim, but give you an idea as to how much compensation you could be entitled to receive.
