Need help with a car accident compensation claim in Redditch?
If you have been involved in a car accident and live in Redditch, you could have sustained injuries. Did you realise that you might be able to claim personal injury compensation? In order to be eligible to file a car accident compensation claim in Redditch, you need to prove that you were not to blame for your accident. You also need to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident.
If you believe that you can prove these two things, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for help with your potential claim.
Making an injury claim
In order to find out if you are indeed eligible to file a claim, talk with us at Accident Advice Helpline. You can speak with one of our trained advisors who will be able to tell you if you really do have grounds for making that car accident compensation claim in Redditch.
You should have had medical treatment for your injuries as quickly as possible after your accident. Your medical records are required if you decide to make a personal injury compensation claim.
You will also need a copy of the police accident report. If anyone is injured in a road traffic accident, the police must be called to the accident scene. They have to find out how the accident happened and why. Sometimes they appeal for witnesses to come forwards and finally they write up a report of the accident and its causes.
Were you driving when the accident happened?
If you have an accident while driving, legally you must stop and enquire if anyone is injured. Failure to stop after an accident is an offence. If anyone has been injured, then the police and an ambulance should be summoned to the scene.
While you are waiting for the emergency services to arrive, take photographs of the condition of the road. For example if there was a huge hole in the road, it might have caused the accident. Photographs can be used as supporting evidence for personal injury compensation claims.
You should take notes of the registration numbers of any other vehicles involved as well as noting their make, model and colour. The weather conditions may have contributed to the accident, as might the lighting. Make a note of both for future reference.
