Car accidents are often caused by distracted, intoxicated or impaired drivers, poor road surface conditions, vehicle defects and bad weather. Whatever the cause of your accident, you can rely on our specialist claims solicitors for excellent advice after a car accident in Lichfield. For over 15 years, we have been recognised for our skill and expertise in dealing with car accident claims and we are confident we help you receive the full compensation you deserve.
The law requires all drivers to hold at least a third party insurance cover. This means that if a driver is to blame for an accident his/her insurance company will be asked to cover the compensation that will be awarded to you as the victim.
If within the last 3 years you were involved in a car accident that was caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness, and you sustained personal injury, you may be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Call us today to find out how we can help you start a risk-free personal injury compensation claim.
Advice after a car accident in Lichfield – important steps to take
Following an accident, your health should be your first priority. Seek medical attention as soon as possible even if you feel you were not seriously hurt. Soft tissue injuries such as back strain and whiplash may not show symptoms immediately. Make sure you tell your doctor everything that happened so that the events of the accident are accurately recorded. Your medical report is an important piece of evidence that will prove your sustained injury in the accident and will help our specialist injury solicitors obtain the maximum amount of compensation on your claim.
Report the accident to the police. The police will take statements from witnesses and parties involved. It is also a good idea to take contact and insurance details from the other driver, take the names of any witnesses to the accident as well. Thanks to modern technology, most modern mobile phones come with camera functions. Take as many photos as you can of the scene of the accident and the surrounding area.
The scene of the accident is not the place to get into an argument about liability. Remain calm and collect the details that you need but avoid discussing the accident with anyone.
