Road traffic accidents in Coventry and what they could mean for you
Being personal injury lawyers, we know only too well how common road traffic accidents in Coventry are becoming. Although many of them are minor in nature, there are a lot of people who are being seriously injured on the roads every year. That is why, at Accident Advice Helpline, we do everything we can to ensure that you are well looked after should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident.
What to do immediately after road traffic accidents in Coventry
After being involved in a road traffic accident, it is important that you stay as calm as possible. We know how distressing a road traffic accident can be, but it is wise to keep a clear head.
After checking that everyone is alright, and calling the emergency services, you should endeavour to be as helpful as possible. This could mean assisting people who are injured or in shock or simply waiting patiently for the emergency services to arrive.
At the first safe opportunity to do so, you should swap insurance information and contact details with the other parties involved in the accident.
It is also a good idea to take photographs of the scene as this will help you with any compensation claim you decide to make after the event.
If you are injured as a result of a road traffic accident, you might understandably want to claim for road traffic accident compensation. We can help you with this, providing that you meet the requirements for compensation, which are as follows:
- You were injured in a road traffic accident
- Another party was responsible for the accident
- You were assessed by a medical professional after the accident
- The accident occurred within the past 3 years
How to claim
All you need to do is call our friendly team of professional advisers. They will go through your claim with you very carefully to work out whether or not you have a case for compensation. You can then decide whether you would like to go ahead and file a claim or not.
