    Car accident what to do


    You’d probably know exactly what to do if your car wouldn’t start or broke down and you’d handle it yourself. Unfortunately, being in a car accident isn’t like that. As many of us will not have been in an accident before, knowing what to say after a car accident or what to do and who to call is not always clear. Maybe your friends and family have told you that you should make a claim but you just don’t know how to go about doing it.

    That’s where an accident claims management company can help you. They will take care of all the administration for you. The only decision you have to take is which accident claims management company you want to use.

    When you have a car accident what to do first is not to panic.

    Accident Advice Helpline is one of the most established claims management companies in the UK and their friendly professional advisers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take your call. They deal with people in the same situation as you every day. Have a look through some of the common queries we receive asking about where to go after a car accident what to do and who to talk to:

    “I’ve just a car accident and don’t know what to do.”

    The friendly professional advisers at Accident Advice Helpline can use our unique 30 second test to assess your claim. There is no obligation for you to go ahead with the claim if you don’t want to so you have nothing to lose by giving them a call.

    “I don’t know what to do about legal representation.”

    “I am worried about having to pay for my legal fees after the car accident.”

    All of our legal partners work on a no win no fee basis so you will not have to pay anything if the claim for your car accident is not successful.

    “Will I have to go to court and visit a doctor?”

    The majority of cases are handled over the telephone and very few cases actually end up in court. You may need to attend one short appointment with a medical doctor who will provide a report about your injuries.

    “If I do make a claim following my car accident, how much money will I get?”

    You will get compensation for your injuries (such as whiplash) and for expenses that you have incurred as a result of the car accident so it’s a good idea to keep your receipts and financial records carefully. The exact amount that you will get for your car accident cannot be guaranteed at the start of the claim and varies from one case to another. The time taken for your claim to be resolved also varies.
