After road traffic accidents
When a person has sustained injuries in a car accident, or other road traffic accident, the police and an ambulance should be called. If someone is trapped in a vehicle, then the fire brigade should be called too.
You need immediate medical attention which may be given at the scene by paramedics. You may also need to go to hospital for treatment. Your medical records will be needed if you decide to make a personal injury compensation claim. These will be used to calculate a part of the compensation you may be awarded if your claim is successful.
It is the duty of the police to investigate road traffic accidents when someone is injured. When they conclude their investigations, they compile an accident report and this will also be required if you make a claim.
