Burnley road traffic accidents

There are many different types of Burnley road traffic accidents that can lead to people requiring the services of an accident lawyer. The following is a mere handful of examples:

  • Car crashes
  • Travel accidents
  • Incidents involving uninsured drivers
  • Motorbike accidents
  • Cyclist accidents

This should give you a better understanding of the sheer scope of road traffic accidents that occur and can result in compensation. The main thing you need to be able to prove is that someone else is responsible for the incident and consequently your injuries.

Steps to take after a road traffic accident

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, there are certain steps you should take to ensure the claim process goes smoothly:

  • See a doctor – It is vital to see a medical professional if you want to have any chance of claiming, as the medical report they provide will serve as proof of your injuries and it is used to determine how much compensation you will get.
  • Get the contact details of the perpetrator – If you have been involved in a hit and run this will not be possible. Otherwise, get the person’s name, telephone number, address, 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 – It can help to take photographs of your injuries as well as any damage at the scene, including damage to the street and your vehicle.
  • Keep proof of any expenses – Last but not least, make sure you keep proof of any expenses incurred because of your injuries – such as medical costs, loss of income and vehicle repair costs – as you will be able to claim for these as special damages.
