Helping a loved one practically after a car accident
If your loved one has been involved in a Caerleon car accident, then there are a few things you can do to help them in the weeks and months following the accident. This is a time that your friend or family member will need all of the support they can get, both emotionally and practically, to help them to get back on track.
Obviously you can lend a listening ear, so that they always feel that they can talk to someone about the Caerleon car accident and the emotions they are feeling. However, one of the ways in which you can best help is with practical things that can help them to feel really supported and that they don’t have to cope with everything on their own.
Offering your car
If you have more than one car and your loved one needs a car to replace their own whilst it is being repaired, one of the nicest things you can offer to do is lend them your car in this time. This will help them to get back on the road as soon as they can, even if it takes some time to sort out the details of their own vehicle.
Helping with a compensation claim for a Caerleon car accident
Your loved one may not feel as though they are in the right place emotionally to make a compensation claim after their Caerleon car accident. However, a compensation claim can be a great financial boost to them following their accident, and can also provide them with a sense of closure.
You may be able to help by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, to speak to our team about the accident and find out whether or not your loved one has a good case for compensation. The team will be able to give advice and explain more about the claims process, so that you can pass this information over to your loved one to help them make a decision.
Going with them to court
Going to court can be terrifying for someone who has never had to do so before. Something you can do to help them through this process is to attend court with them, offering moral support and holding their hand while they go through it. Offer this as early as you can, so that they know they have your support before a court date is even set.
Talk them through what needs to be done
In many cases they will have to deal with a lot of issues on their own, but if you can sit down with them and make a list of what needs to be done, this will help them to deal with the situation.
