Advice after a car accident in Stoke-on-Trent
If you are involved in a car accident, there are several actions you can take that will help both your subsequent compensation claim, and can assist your recovery.
Life threatening injuries – If anybody – including you, your passengers or another person who was involved in your accident – has sustained life threatening injuries, then it is vital that this person is taken to hospital straight away. This must be your first priority.
Photograph the crash site – If you are able to move without causing yourself pain, take photographs of the crash site using a camera or the camera function on your phone. Be sure to take photographs from multiple angles of any damage done to you, your passengers, or your car. This evidence can be valuable to your compensation claim.
Collect insurance details – Gaining the insurance details and contact information of the person or persons responsible for your accident can make your compensation claim much easier.
Collect witness statements – Anybody else who was involved in the crash or anybody who saw it can be vital to your compensation claim. Be sure to collect the contact details of all of these people, their witness statements could be the difference maker for your claim.
Seek immediate medical attention – Injuries that can be sustained in a car crash, such as concussion or whiplash, do not always show themselves immediately. This is especially true if you are suffering from stress and trauma in the wake of your accident. It is therefore very important that you get to a medical professional as soon as possible so you can be given the once over and any injuries can be diagnosed and treated. This medical diagnosis can also be helpful to your compensation claim.
