What factors do I need to be mindful of if I’m in a car crash?
If you are in a Cambridge car crash and are thinking of making a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline then it is important to know as much as possible about the compensation claim process and the factors that affect your eligibility to make a claim.
Arguably the most important factor to keep in mind is that a claim can only be made if the car crash was caused by someone else. There needs to be evidence that you are not responsible for causing the car crash but in accidents like this there can be varying degrees of fault between the parties involved in a car crash so it is not always clear who was to blame. An assessment of the car crash will most likely be taken by law enforcement personnel to determine the cause of the crash. In these assessments, the levels of negligence by each driver will be compared to determine who caused the crash.
When you make a claim for a car crash with a law firm, they will require the vehicle details of all cars involved in the crash including most importantly the registration number. After this, the names of the other drivers involved, the location of the accident, time of the crash and if possible, photos of the crash help with the compensation claim. Responsibility for the accident may be able to be determined with photos taken of the accident.
Another factor that is important is the extent of your injuries caused by the car crash. All financial records of medical treatment and other costs related to the injuries caused by the car crash should be kept so they can be factored into the amount of compensation you could receive from a successful claim.
The length of time taken for a Cambridge car crash claim to be made may depend on the length of time it takes you to fully recover as the compensation amount will need to take into account the full costs of your injuries and any ongoing effects that will affect your health and physical abilities in the future.Open Claim Calculator
