    Making a claim for compensation for a car accident today

    Evidence is what is going to help you make a compensation claim. Whatever your situation, it is imperative that you are able to prove that the other party caused your car accident through their negligence.

    Top tips:

    • Keep a pen and paper on you, if you need to suddenly take someone’s details down then having these to hand will help.
    • Or as many of have smartphones these days, make a note on your phone. We advise sending this as an email to yourself just to be sure.
    • Remember it is a legal requirement for who ever is involved in car accident to exchange their details.
    • Take photos. The scene might be very different a few months later so it is essential that you try and record the scene as it was at the time of your car accident.
    • Write detailed description of what happened, often after a traumatic event we want to forget and this can hamper the compensation claim down the line.
    • Make a note of any car registration plates, the address of the road and the time of the accident.
    • See a doctor as soon as you can. Any medical evidence will be very useful in bringing a compensation claim that is successful.

    Remember you have the right not to be impacted on by someone else’s negligent actions and making a claim for compensation is part of you standing up for your right not to damaged.
