Thousands of people are injured every year on the British roads, with plenty occurring in and round Pendle, and for many it’s the first time they’ve ever been in such an accident. This means that there is a lot of confusion surrounding the next steps such as reporting the accident and claiming after a car crash in Pendle, and how they go about getting their vehicle recovered.
Car accidents are among the most common incidents in the UK, and with more and more people getting behind the wheel the British motorways are becoming increasingly congested.
Despite the best efforts of the local and national governments combined with the various road safety partnerships, the amount of traffic on the roads still leads to an alarming number of accidents and, consequently, serious injuries for innocent people.
Reporting the accident to the emergency services
While accidents often occur out of nowhere, it’s vital that you get as much information about the accident as you possibly can so that the police can analyse the incident, who was to blame and take action where necessary.
If you are ever in a road traffic accident, it’s vital that someone at the scene calls the emergency services as soon as possible. The police will need to compile the aforementioned report and they may also need to either close the road or put a temporary diversion in place until the vehicles are recovered, people are treated and the road is cleared.
An ambulance and the fire brigade may also be needed if people are particularly seriously injured and if they need specialist help to get them out of their vehicles.
Claiming after a car crash in Pendle
For those who have been hurt, if the accident wasn’t their fault it can be a very distressing time. Fortunately they may be in a position where claiming after a car crash in Pendle is a possibility.

If you decide that you do want to look into the possibility of making a claim, then we can provide free advice on how to get your case started. We’ve even created an online test that takes just 30-seconds to complete, and by answering a few simple questions about the accident we can assess if you might be eligible to make a claim.
If you are, and wish to pursue the claim, then we will assign you with your own personal injury lawyer who will handle the case on your behalf. They will contact you to gather as much information as possible about the incident and how you’ve been affected.
These details will include the amount of pain and suffering caused, any financial implications and enforced changes to your lifestyle, and will help us to estimate the minimum and maximum potential compensation payout you might be entitled to.
