After any type of road traffic accident, no matter how serious, your first priority should be to make sure that everybody involved gets the medical treatment they might need.
It will be important to bear in mind that people who seem on the surface of things to have escaped relatively unscathed could in fact have sustained injuries that might have the potential to cause some very worrying complications later on. If the accident you were involved in was not your fault, you would also be well advised to keep a look out or evidence that might prove this if you were injured and think that you might later be able to make a claim for 100% no win no fee* personal injury compensation.
If you do this after the incident, once it has been established that everybody involved is ok, you will be able to offer this as proof of the circumstances that surrounded the accident when it comes to seeking out advice after a car accident in Surrey.
Collecting evidence before seeking advice after a car accident in Surrey
You will struggle to find a 100% no win no fee* personal injury law firm to represent you if you not have a reasonable amount of evidence in place that supports your version of events.
As well as medical evidence that demonstrates you suffered the injuries you claim to have sustained, any additional proof that you can produce may well strengthen your position. Video or photographic evidence of the incident itself or its aftermath might be very useful to your lawyer, particularly if you had a portable camera in your vehicle that was recording your journey, as some people tend to have these days. The testimony of any witnesses that might have seen what happened to you could also come in very handy.
