What to do after a car crash in East Riding
In the immediate aftermath of a car crash in East Riding, if you are able to, your first actions should be to take the details of the party responsible. If they were driving a vehicle, take their registration number and contact details. You should also aim to take the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses. If at all possible, and safe to do so, you should take photographs of the scene of the accident. All this information can be useful in the coming months to prove who was responsible and support your case for compensation.
When would I be entitled to compensation after a car crash in East Riding?
Usually you can claim compensation provided you have received injuries which required medical treatment. Someone else must have been acting carelessly, negligently or criminally, thus causing the accident. And you must make a claim within three years of the date of the accident.
How do I go about claiming compensation?
You should approach a reputable firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline. It’s advisable to seek the services of a specialist solicitor, with experience of handling personal injury claims in general and road traffic accidents in particular.
