As personal injury lawyers with over 15 years of experience, we know just how often road traffic accidents in Cotswold occur. We also know just how awful they can be for the people involved. It is for this reason that we have dedicated ourselves to tirelessly seeking compensation for those hurt by such accidents.
Thankfully, the bulk of road traffic accidents result in only minor injuries, with far fewer serious cases of injury and death, but we realise that all road traffic accidents can have a terrible impact on victims, either physically or mentally, which is why we offer you the following advice:
What to do directly if you’re involved in road traffic accidents in Cotswold
If you are ever involved in a road traffic accident, it is very important that you keep a clear head about you, not only for your own benefit, but for the benefit of those around you.
Immediately after the accident occurs; you should check that you and your passengers are ok. If anyone is in need of medical attention, be sure to call the emergency service as quickly as possible.
Once you are sure everyone is safe, you will need to swap insurance information, take town the details of any eye-witnesses to the incident and, if at all possible, take photographs of the scene to help you with any compensation claim.
What to do if you’ve already been involved in an accident
If you have already been in a road traffic accident, then you will probably want to know if you can claim road traffic accident compensation.
You can claim road traffic accident compensation if
- The accident wasn’t your fault
- You were seen by a doctor or other medical professional after the accident
- Your accident happened less than 3 years ago
