    Car accident information


    Car accident information forms a vital part of any personal injury claim following a road traffic accident that was not your own fault. Accident Advice Helpline are a law firm that handle thousands of this type of claim every year and know exactly what type of car accident information will be required at the various stages of the claims process.

    Car accident information at the very start of the claims process

    Right at the very start of the claims process, when you first contact Accident Advice Helpline, you will not even be sure whether you have grounds to even start a car accident claim in the first place. Therefore, at this stage of the claims process, Accident Advice Helpline will be requiring some very simple information about the accident and your injuries. Typical car accident information at this stage consists of:

    • What was the date of the accident?
    • Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
    • Were you to blame for the accident?
    • Which part of your body was injured?

    This information will enable the experts at Accident Advice Helpline to give you an idea of whether your claim is likely to be successful and to get you an estimate of how much money you may receive in compensation.

    Car accident information to establish liability

    Establishing liability is the legal term for sorting out who was to blame for the accident and getting the evidence together to prove that. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers are especially skilled at doing this. We will need you to supply some car accident information to help them do this and it may include:

    • Your own account of what happened
    • Witness statements from people who saw the accident
    • Sketches of the layout of the accident scene
    • Photographs of the accident scene

    Car accident information to prove injury

    In every personal injury claim there has to be some sort of injury. Your personal injury lawyer will be setting out to prove that you were actually injured in the car accident. Injuries can be physical or psychological or a combination of both. You will normally have consulted a doctor about your injuries and they will have recorded this in your medical notes.

    Your personal injury lawyer will need details of this consultation so that they can request a copy of these medical notes. You will also probably be asked to attend a medical appointment with a medical expert so that a medical assessment report can be prepared about your injuries. You should keep a note of all the medical appointments that you have had to attend because of your injuries. It is also a good idea to make a note of how the injuries are impacting on your normal everyday life.

    Now give us a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile to get your compensation claim started.
