    Claiming if you’re injured in a car accident


    Claiming if you’re injured in a car accident

    Car accidents are some of the most dangerous and traumatic accidents to have. Unlike many kinds of accidents, almost everyone is potentially exposed to the risk of being involved in a car accident. Start claiming if you’re injured in a car accident!

    Here is a brief guide to help you know what to do after a car accident happens

    • Get help: It almost goes without saying, but the first thing to do after a car accident occurs is to contact the emergency services. Whether you have been involved in the car accident or just happen to be one of the first people on the scene, getting immediate assistance is essential. When you call the emergency services, try to give as much specific information as possible, stating exactly where you are, how many people are hurt and what kind of injuries have been sustained.
    • Get organised: You may think that you will remember everything that has just taken place, but your memory will fade quickly, particularly if you are suffering from shock. Make a note of everything you can think of. If you don’t have pen and paper, use your text or email function on your phone. Include details like the registrations, makes and colours or the vehicles involved; the exact location and who was travelling where, positions on the road and approximate speeds; and the road and weather conditions. Note down everything other drivers say. Also note what the witnesses saw. Take as many details as possible from the other drivers and witnesses, including contact details, addresses and places of work. If possible, take photos with your phone of the accident, the area, and if you can, the other drivers.
    • Get justice: If you are not to blame, you can claim compensation for the pain and loss that you have experienced. All of your evidence will help your specialist personal accident solicitor to fight for the best possible compensation award for you.
