Bury car accident

An insurance expert inspecting damaged cars.

What happens if I cause a car accident?

If you are involved in a Bury car accident, there will be plenty of things for you to deal with in the aftermath so that you can get the damage to your car fixed, deal with any injuries and get back to normal.

If you were to blame for the Bury car accident, then you will have a lot more to cope with, and may feel afraid or upset by what your actions have caused. However, it is important that you keep your head in the moments following an accident, so that you can get the situation resolved as easily as possible and be sure that you are not breaking the law.

If you were not at fault for the Bury car accident, but were injured because of the negligent actions of someone else, making a claim for compensation can be a great way to get you back on track.

Claiming compensation for a Bury car accident

Accident Advice Helpline can help you with your claim for compensation, providing you with experienced and dedicated personal injury lawyers who are here to get you the compensation you deserve. Call the helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak to our team and tell them more about your accident. They will help you to decide whether or not you want to proceed with a claim, and if you do will pass you over to experienced personal injury lawyers who can work with you on a 100% no win no fee* basis to process your claim.

  • Stop and wait. In many cases, your first instinct will be to get away from the scene if you have caused an accident. Not only is this the worst thing you can do for yourself and your own sense of guilt, but it is also the worst thing you can do legally.
  • Talk to the other driver. Go over to the other driver and calmly provide your personal and insurance details. This should mean that they are more happy to pass over their details, and will help you to deal with the situation later down the line when it comes to insurance and compensation.
  • Don’t admit guilt. Even if you know that you were to blame for the accident, it is not worth admitting guilt at this point. This could work against you in court, and it may turn out that you weren’t to blame at all. Don’t apologise until your guilt has been proved.
  • Call the police. It is a legal requirement in the UK that every accident must be reported to the police. Although it may be tempting not to get the police involved, you must call the police to the scene and let them file an accident report.
