Road traffic accident claims
There are a few steps you should follow to increase your chances of securing compensation. These are as follows:
Get the contact details of the perpetrator – This should include their name, address, telephone number and the details of their insurer as well as the make, model and registration number of their vehicle.
Get the contact details of any witnesses – Witness statements can help to strengthen your case.
Take photographs – Take photographs of your injuries or any damage at the scene, such as the damage done to your vehicle.
Keep receipts of any expenses incurred – From vehicle repair costs to treatment expenses, you need to keep proof of any costs encountered because of your injuries as you will be able to claim for them.
