What to do if you are in a car accident that was not your fault
After a car accident, there are actions you can take that can assist in your compensation claim.
- The most important thing to do immediately after a car accident is check the well-being of yourself, your passengers, and anyone else involved in the accident. If anyone has suffered severe or life-threatening injuries, they must be your first priority.
- Take photographs of the scene of the crash. If you have a camera, use that, if not photographs from a camera phone will be equally effective. Take pictures from multiple angles, be sure to include all of the damage done to your vehicle and any injuries sustained by yourself and the passengers in your car.
- Take the insurance details, contact details and addresses of all people involved in the crash. This will help track down those responsible, and gain witness statements from anyone else involved that can assist with your compensation claim.
- Seek immediate medical attention. Even if your injuries do not seem serious, it may be that the symptoms have not yet shown themselves. Many injuries that can be sustained from a car crash, including concussion and whiplash injuries, have symptoms that do not always show immediately. A medical diagnosis will help your compensation claim as well as ensure your health and safety.
