Claiming after a car crash in Bromsgrove – fault for the accident
You can start a personal injury claim against another driver if they were at fault for the accident in which you were hurt. Some car crashes are caused by drivers who were speeding or who were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In other cases, a driver caused a car crash because they lost concentration. There are many things that can distract a driver such as:
- A passenger
- Something on the street
- A mobile phone call
- An activity such as unwrapping a sweet
Driving is a very demanding activity and it is essential that all drivers pay full attention to the road. If another driver has not done this and has caused a crash, you may be able to start a personal injury claim.
You will be able to prove that they were at fault using several pieces of evidence. If it is possible, you should call the police to the scene of the car crash. They will prepare a police accident report which will highlight who was to blame.
Witnesses to the car crash
You are, of course, one of the witnesses and so you will make a statement about what happened. This will be used in your personal injury claim. However, it is also important to have other independent witnesses. It essential that you take their names and contact details before they leave the scene of the accident so that they can be contacted and asked for a statement later on in your claim.
You should start your claim a soon as possible after the accident. This makes it much easier to track down the witnesses before they move home or change their mobile phone numbers.
