Car crash injuries in East Hertfordshire can have a significant impact on your life. Whether you’ve suffered whiplash, a serious head injury or a spinal injury, you can expect to have to take time off work. You may also find it difficult to carry out normal day to day activities and may have to rely on others more than you’re used to.
If car crash injuries have impacted your life negatively, then it makes sense to find out if you’re owed compensation. As long as the car accident was another road user’s fault (and it occurred within the past three years), you could be due a significant payout. Many crash victims contact Accident Advice Helpline when they want to file a claim for personal injury compensation.
Don’t delay seeing a doctor
In the age of Google, it can be tempting to self-diagnose your injuries. However, this is never a good idea. Whilst you may suspect that you have whiplash, or any other injury, it’s vital that you see a medical professional who can assess your injuries as fully as possible.
They can then look to provide you with the best and most appropriate care and treatment to ensure that you recover as quickly as possible. A detailed doctor’s report can also serve as useful evidence should you decide to file a claim against the person responsible for the crash.
Collect evidence at the scene
In the moments after a car accident, you’ll no doubt be feeling shocked and bewildered. However, it’s important that you try to think clearly, as you’ll need to collect evidence to support any claim you may make. You should get contact details not just for those involved in the collision but for onlookers who saw what happened. You may also want to take photos of the cars involved in the crash. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a camera on hand – simply use a camera phone.
