The noise of metal on metal as your car collides with another vehicle can be devastating. Car accidents are common occurrences, however, they can sometimes result in serious injuries. If you’ve been seriously injured in a road collision that wasn’t your fault, you may be considering filing a claim for compensation.

What to do after a road traffic accident
Most people don’t expect to be involved in a road traffic accident and so knowing what to do in the moments after the incident can be difficult. The first thing you need to do is call the police. Some people think that involving the police isn’t necessary, especially if the damage to the vehicles or injuries to those involved don’t seem serious. However, a detailed police report can provide you with valuable evidence to support your claim, should you choose to make one. You may also want to take photos of the vehicles involved in the collision. If you don’t have a camera on your person, a camera phone will suffice.
See a doctor right away
It can be tempting to avoid seeing a doctor after a car accident. However, this is crucial, especially if you plan to file a compensation claim. A doctor will be able to assess your injuries and ensure that you receive the best care and treatment to enable a swift recovery. Just like a police report, a doctor’s report can also serve as evidence should you decide to make a claim for compensation.
